Table 3 m2 area as a proportion of total occlusal area

From: Testing the inhibitory cascade model in Mesozoic and Cenozoic mammaliaforms

  1. A comparision between the proportion of total lower molar occlusal area (m1 + m2 + m3) taken up by m2, in the IC Model’s prediction, a previous analysis, and this study.
