Combined otolith morphology and morphometry for assessing taxonomy and diversity in fossil and extant killifish (Aphanius, †Prolebias)
Systematic assignment of fossil otoliths is virtually always based on studies of otolith morphology and subsequent comparisons with otoliths from collections and/or literature. Although this usuallyExpand

Vertebrate microfossils from the Upper Freshwater Molasse in the Swiss Molasse Basin: Implications for the evolution of the North Alpine Foreland Basin during the Miocene Climate Optimum
Abstract The older part of the Upper Freshwater Molasse (OSM) in the Swiss and South German Molasse Basin records the extended warm period known as the Miocene Climate Optimum. However, dating andExpand

Reconstruction of Oligocene and Neogene freshwater fish faunas—an actualistic study on cypriniform otoliths
Fossil utricular otoliths (= lapilli) from cypriniform fishes have long been recorded from European Oligocene and Neo− gene freshwater and oligohaline sediments. Until now, their determination wasExpand
