Team HEP Scherf
Dr. Heike Scherf
Research Fellow

Dr. Scherf’s research interests lie in the effects of locomotor loads on internal bony structures of long bones in primates including fossil and extant humans. Analyses of locomotion related structures in extant species are used as comparative basis to interpret the bony morphology in long bones of fossil species with regard to their preferred type of locomotion. In this field of research special attention is paid to:
• Functional adaptation of cancellous bone
• Quantification of the trabecular architecture
• Functional structures in cortical bone
• Application of high resolution CT to fossil bones
• Estimation of habitual locomotor loads
• Estimation of stresses in bone structures caused by habitual locomotion
As accurate handling of digital data, e.g. CT data, build the first step for the interpretation of internal structures, Dr. Scherf has put an additional research focus on the development of reproducible and accurate computerized pre-processing and analysing methods for complex internal bone structures (e.g. cancellous bone).

Team HEP Bader
Dr. Gregor Donatus Bader
Akademischer Mitarbeiter

Gregor Bader is focusing on cultural variability of hunter gatherer societies living during the Middle- and Later Stone Age in Africa. He is specialized in lithic technology and combines different approaches, such as attribute analysis and chaîne opératoire in order to connect qualitative and quantitative data. His main research area is KwaZulu-Natal in the eastern part of South Africa, where he is about to establish a better regional archaeological framework for the last 40.000 years, respectively the final-MSA and LSA. The three major sites under investigation so far are Umbeli Belli, Sibudu and Holley Shelter. Furthermore, he is involved into a project run by the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) focused on a reinvestigation of archaeological collections of Swaziland and new excavations of selected sites in the country. This project encompasses several time periods from the MSA, LSA to the early Iron Age and hence the early contact period between hunter gatherers and farmers. Gregor Bader is also involved in the VW-funded project “evolving human minds”, focused on a reinvestigation of Mumba Cave in Tanzania and the surrounding area.

Research Interests
Crocodylia first appeared in the Campanian with a diversity peak in the Eocene and Miocene. While there is a rich fossil record of Crocodylia in general, eastern Asia is poorly sampled. An excavation side in Vietnam (Na Duong) offers the combination of species diversity from all three major crocodilian groups and the abundance and excellent preservation of fossils makes this material extremely valuable for scientific research.
The goal of my PhD is the description and phylogenetic study of the material, to untangle the biogeographic history of Asian Paleogene Alligatoroids, as well as to understand the early evolution of Crocodyloidea and helping to solve the discrepancy between molecular and morphological data.

Current Position:
Since 06/2015: Collection Manager of the Archaeozoology and Archaeobotany Collections
Coordinator of the Microvertebrate Working Group (MVWG) in ICAZ
Additional scientific editor of Journal of Palaeontological Techniques

Angel Blanco studied Geology (Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), 2003). Has the Master in Experimental Paleontology (UB) (2005) and Master in Prehistoric Archaeology, Ancient and Medieval History (UAB) (2012). During several years he have worked as curatorial preparator and taxidermist in the most important Museums or Scientific Institutions of Spain (Museum of Natural Sciences of Barcelona, Natural History Museum of Madrid, Zooarch Lab of Barcelona…). Also, he worked during the same period as palaentologist in different sites in Spain from Cretaceous to Early Pleistocene. Currently, he works on multiple fish assamblages from Pleistocene sites of Iberian Peninsula (Atapuerca, Barranco León, Fuentenueva 3 Baza and Pinilla del Valle) and Germany (Hohlenstein-Stadel, Helga Abri and Hohle Fels), on others from Pliocene-Pleistocene in Republic of Georgia (Dmanisi); early history and historical time deposits of Neolithic Age (The Draga, El Mirador), Iberian (Mas Castellar de Pontós) or medieval (Castles of Montsoriu and El Catllar).

Research:

Using the ‘comprehensive organism concept’, a holistic understanding of evolutionary processes is possible. Therein, the whole life of an organism – from fertilization to dead – is understood as a process of development on which selection can act through evolution. Heterochronies – changes in the developmental timing of characters – are hypothesized to have fundamental impact on shaping an adult structure. In mutual dependence with those, spatial reorganizations take place during development, so called heterotopies. Both mechanisms, together with allometric change, enable the evolution of new morphotypes.
With the help of standardized developmental characters, I study the patterns of embryonic timing in a variety of land vertebrate species, including turtles, snakes, lizards, and diverse mammalian groups. Given the recent advances in molecular systematics, a comprehensive (falcifiable) phylogenetic framework is provided, which I use to trace evolutionary developmental changes and discuss those in the context of morphological diversification. Besides organogenesis, also patterns of skeletogenesis and some genetic aspects of development and evolution are observed.
On a histological scale, development of particular organs is studied – a classic comparative embryological approach – in order to detect homologies, to uncover patterns of recapitulation, and to trace spatial developmental changes that lead to adult morphology. For adult anatomy, similar to my embryological studies, I concentrate on the craniocervical system of amniotes and some fish. One focus lies on the morphology of the musculature and other soft tissues, their anatomical diversity, phylogenetic distribution, and functional integration. Another focus lies on the interrelationship of head and neck morphology.
