English abstract:
The distribution of elements in sauropod humeri and femora was determined by micro-X-rayfluorescence
analysis (-XRF). Element distribution maps enable correlations between bone
architecture and spatial distribution of the chemical elements. The investigations reveal no
significant macroscopic gradients in the element distribution across the fossil bone cross-section.
More detailed investigations of areas in the periosteal and the endosteal region of the bones were
performed by area scans and are visualized by element distribution maps.
