Microbial bioerosion is a major diagenetic factor determining the long-term survival of archaeological bones as well as the quantity and quality of the biological information retrievable from them. In spite of this, information about bioerosion is still scarce from a worldwide perspective, with most of the data coming from the European continent. In this connection, the primary aim of this paper i ...
