All six teeth three premolars and three molars are approximately equally hypsodont. The Equus M2 selected for this study is representative of the other molars and premolars Figure 2. The outer walls of the enamel are relatively vertical and almost parallel to one another. This gives the tooth a uniform thickness and a columnar shape. A substantial part of the crown in the Equus M2 is enclosed in the alveolar bone of the mandible and the maxilla Figure 1A. Only a small part of the crown is exposed in the oral cavity: the active tooth crown.
As the animal feeds, the active crown is worn-down by the ingested vegetation and or exogenous grit. An additional crown slowly emerges from the alveolar space to replace the worn crown.
In older individuals, albeit rare in the wild and prior to death, very little if any crown remains in the alveoli Figure 1B. The tooth root of any mammal is encased externally in a thin coating of cementum. In Equus this coating also extends outside the enamel surface where it is thick Figure 2. The cementum is a distinct tissue but histologically similar to the dentine White, ; Peyer, The periodontal ligaments cannot attach to enamel directly.
Thus, the cementum adheres to the enamel and provides a surface for the periodontal ligaments. Each alveolar space is lined internally by a thin layer of bone the lamina dura Peyer, ; Fortelius, ; Williams, Gray's Anatomy; text figure The periodontal ligaments bind the cementum to the lamina dura.
The crowns of brachydont teeth are not in the alveoli and hence they have a thin layer of cementum only around the true roots. The crown of the alveolus constantly erupts and progressively becomes the new active crown while the tooth wears with age. As the tooth emerges from the alveolar space, the empty alveolar space is gradually filled with spongy trabecular bone.
The lamina dura follows the shape of the three buccal styles of Equus teeth. These structures prevent rotation of the tooth and are clearly used in support during mastication. In older teeth where the very base of the crown does not have these styles, the tooth often rotates and is out of alignment. Worn down teeth create problems in horses Kirkland et al. Results This study uses a qualitative approach to develop a new theory.
Hence, we have not used a statistical analysis to quantify our results. Hyracotherium and Mesohippus are brachydont taxa. Protohippus and Merychippus are mesodont while Equus is hypsodont. Size of Roots Table 1 shows five representative species of equids. In Equus where the teeth are hypsodont, the roots similar in length to the roots of brachydont teeth. The number of specimens examined is small and the calculations are an approximation.
Thus, the roots of Hyracotherium are even longer than those of Equus Table 1. These preliminary results show the roots in evolution do not increase in size as hypsodonty increases; the roots rather decrease. The roots decrease when compared to the crown. Examination of a few roots provided the following findings: The Hyracotherium leporinum have a ratio of crown height over root length 1. In Mesohippus bairdi the ratio is slightly decreased 1.
That is, the crowns are more hypsodont than in Hyracotherium. In Merychippus insignis, the hypsodonty is evident as the ratio drops to 0. Protohippus primus has long roots and the ratio is 0.
In the Pleistocene Equus sp. Open Roots vs.
Closed Roots The adult Equus teeth display short roots that are open-ended implying potential for growth of these roots Table 1 ; Figures 2A,B.
The roots of old individuals are longer and closed.
In domesticated cases, it is more common to find old individuals. In our collection, there are two old Equus caballus specimens where the crowns are almost completely worn off Table 1. In these three, the roots are elongated and not open-ended.
This implies the elongated roots have completed their growth. The ratio of these old specimens of Equus caballus for crown height to root length is 0. These ratios are different from those of younger adult individuals where that ratio is 0. It Is Rare to Find Wild Older Individuals in Fossils in Museums It was possible to evaluate roughly the age of individuals and separate the adults from the old based on the stage of tooth eruption and tooth wear.
In brachydont teeth, the entire crown is exposed, and the base of the roots is also exposed. Thus, in brachydont teeth, the roots can be seen at the opening of the alveoli at the base of the crowns but the same is not true in young hypsodont teeth. In these, the roots are very deep in the alveoli and can be seen only when the crown is heavily worn. Using this evaluation procedure, we examined 15 localities with ungulates. The species were: dromomerycids, bovids, cemelids, and equids and reveal a clear pattern.
Namely, the majority of the examined specimens are young adults.
The very old individuals were few to none Table 2. Brief survey of number of young adults vs. The Longitudinal Section Through the Middle of a Second Upper Molar of Equus The central cavities are the dominant feature in this longitudinal cut and are filled with cementum green. The dentine white is developed by the roots and along the enamel walls. The enamel red is not a dominant feature is this view. Using the surface of this longitudinal cut and the colors the areas in square millimeters of each color and hence material is: cementum: Mechanics Another way of evaluating the interaction between force and tooth height is seen in Figure 4A.
This bar graph Figure 4A allows the changes in tooth height to also parallel the hypsodont's lifespan as traveling from left to right on the x-axis. As an Equus ages, the alveolar tooth length decreases, which is why the graph follows time.
Observing the force of the alveolar space compared to the length of the tooth, at 9 mm of alveolar length, there is a drastic increase in the force generated. This exponential trend continues for the last two points of 5 and 2 mm, respectively.
Essentially this model indicates that as the tooth length approaches zero millimeters in length, the force of the alveolar space will approach infinity. It can be mathematically understood by having La alveolar length in Equation 3 approach zero, therefore resulting in Fa having a limit of infinity. This graph displays an exponential increase in force generated as tooth length decreases. This is similar to Figure 3B , where the force exponentially increased with decrease in alveolar tooth height.
Using the same y-axis force values from Figure 4A , a plot shows the alveolar force vs. It is observed that the alveolar tooth height and the horse's age are inversely related following the same exponential trends of force as seen in Figures 3B , 4A. Figure 4B shows the dramatic change in the force as the embedded crown is worn off which occurs in our model of wear after age Discussion A significant aspect in evaluating the proposed plioroot theory is that we do not yet have the true phylogenetic lineage for the evolution of Equus.
The taxa listed represent an approximation to the real evolution which is not studied here and is not known.
The taxa are simply used to make the point. Roots do not appear to increase in size during evolution when the tooth crown increases. In fact, the roots of Equus are smaller than those of Hyracotherium in actual size. The difference in size of the two genera is great 9 kg for Hyracotherium vs. We found that during evolution, the roots decrease in size as the tooth crown and body size increases.
This may be due to the plioroot hypothesis, in which the crown in the alveolus acts as a root. Hence, the true roots alone are incapable of supporting the tooth. We observed no evolutionary diversification or enlargement of the true roots to support the extra crowns as teeth become more hypsodont.
The true roots of Equus are small and open-ended and contain live tissues for the possibility of growth. When a horse is old there is no more crown in the alveolus Gregory, , text figure The forces of mastication tremendously affect the small remaining old tooth in several ways.

I have always wanted this book, but because it is out of print, it was difficult to come by. I was so happy to find it here. I actually have two copies from different years, now. A great gook for learning about the equine anatomy! One person found this helpful. See the review. Customers who bought related items also bought.
