Mensurations de quelques Aurochs (Bos primigenius Bojanus, 1827) de l’ouest de la France

Abstract : The absence of a comprehensive inventory of the remains of Bos primigenius in France and the lack of osteometric comparison data is a handicap in advancing our knowledge of this species. In a very unpretentious way limited to the West of France, this work completes the corpus and provides original metric data resulting from four institutions (Nantes Museum, Cherbourg Museum, Bougon Museum and Brest University), for a sample of 11 specimens for which only the cranial skeleton is preserved. This study is a continuation of an initial publication (Borvon et al., 2008) which had already listed Aurochs remains from western France and aims at encouraging this type of research which seems to have a lot more possible results to give.
