    Modern gnathostomes (jawed vertebrates) emerged in the early Palaeozoic era, but this event remains unclear owing to a scant early fossil record. The exclusively Palaeozoic ‘acanthodians’ are possibly the earliest gnathostome group and exhibit a mosaic of shark- and bony fish-like...

    The article discusses a comparative study concerning the curvature of the mandibular occlusal plane (the curve of Spee) in mammals and its relation to the design of the fossa mandibularis. It states that in 1890 Ferdinand Graf von Spee discovered this curvature between the bicuspids and molars...
