Record 1 2020-04-28

English

Subject field(s)
  • Paleontology
  • Archeology
DEF

The least number of whole bones or their diagnostic parts that can account for a sample of bone fragments.

CONT

The minimum number of individuals (MNI) and the minimum number of animal units (MAU) are two of the most popular derived measurements, and each is based on a prior estimate of the minimum number of elements (MNE).

French

Domaine(s)
  • Paléontologie
  • Archéologie
CONT

La comparaison la plus probante a été celle réalisée entre le nombre minimum d’éléments (NME) présents naturellement dans une carcasse d'ours et le NME moyen calculé pour les ours de Regourdou [...]

OBS

[...] le terme «éléments» peut indiquer des parties complètes du squelette (ex : un fémur), mais il peut aussi faire référence à des parties incomplètes (ex : fragment distal de fémur). Il ne faut donc plus raisonner en termes d'individus, mais en termes de portions de squelette.

Spanish

Campo(s) temático(s)
  • Paleontología
  • Arqueología
CONT

El NME es una unidad analítica y no de observación. Según Lyman (1994), fue una medida que se introdujo para paliar la falta de precisión en la fragmentación de los elementos del esqueleto.
