Resumen

The aim of this paper is to provide a summary of structural or surface modifications of
vertebrate bone remains in continental palaeoenvironments that may have repercussions on
their chemical composition. Both before and after burial, a different set of physical, chemical
and biological agencies may produce modifications of the bone morphological structure
and/or bone chemical composition. Several of these morphological modifications are diagnostic
of particular agents, which otherwise may not be noticed or identified in a fossil
association. In order to understand diagenesis, those events that occurred before final burial
have to be considered, as they may strongly modify the bone morphological structure and
influence post-burial changes.
