The cave bear (Ursus spelaeus sensu lato) is a typical representative of Pleistocene megafauna which became extinct at the end of the Last Glacial. Detailed knowledge of cave bear extinction could explain this spectacular ecological transformation. The paper provides a report on the youngest remains of the cave bear dated to 20,930 ± 140 14C years before(More)
Estimates of genetic diversity and phylogenetic affiliation represent an important resource for biodiversity assessment and a valuable guide to conservation and management. We have found a new population (Jawor—JW) of the common hamster Cricetus cricetus in western Poland that is remote from the nearest populations by 235–300 km. With the objective of(More)
The pre-Quaternary fossil record of Canis in the Old World is scarce, and the first appearance of this genus in Europe remains an enigma. Amongst the oldest fossils assigned to this genus, there is a natural cast of the brain (endocast) collected in Węże 1, Poland, from Pliocene deposits dated between 3.3 and 4.0 Ma. We reexamined this specimen and found(More)
