Criteria for age assessment of blesbok

Olivier G.C. ; Greyling F.J. (1991)

Four methods for age assessment by cementum growth layers, were compared. Histological sections stained with 0.01% crystal violet produced accurate results which can be used for Damaliscus dorcas phillipsi age determination. Tooth eruption and replacement sequences were determined for 6 and 18-month-old blesbok to augment published data. Rate of appearance of horn annulation varied too much to allow its use as a criterion for age assessment. -from Authors
