Teeth can play a substantial role in how animals move, manipulate their environment, positively interact with conspecifics, antagonistically interact with other organisms, and sense the environment. We review these non-trophic functions in an attempt to place the utility of human and all other vertebrate dentitions in a more diverse framework that emphasizes an expanded view of the functional importance and ecological diversity of teeth. In light of the extensive understanding of the developmental genetics, trophic functions, and evolutionary history of teeth, comparative studies of vertebrate dentitions will continue to provide unique insights into multi-functionality, many-to-one mapping, and the evolution of novel abilities.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2020-06-30T12:52:04Z</dc:date> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2020-09-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Gorman, Courtney</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
