Data from: Feeding ecology and habitat preferences of top predators from two Miocene carnivore-rich assemblages

M. Soledad Domingo, Laura Domingo, Juan Abella, Alberto Valenciano, Catherine Badgley & Jorge Morales
Carnivoran-rich fossil sites are uncommon in the fossil record and, accordingly, provide valuable opportunities to study predators from vantages that are rarely applied to ancient faunas. Through stable isotopes of carbon and a Bayesian mixing model, we analyze time-successive (nearly contemporaneous), late Miocene carnivoran populations from two fossil sites (Batallones-1 and Batallones-3) from central Spain. Stable isotopes of carbon in tooth enamel provide a reliable and direct methodology to track ancient diets. These two carnivoran-dominated...
