Fossiliferous amber deposits from the Cretaceous (Albian) of Spain
Abstract Amber-bearing deposits are a specific kind of fossil bioaccumulation that preserves exceptionally well palaeobiological information from the past. The present article discusses the ‘state ofExpand
Vertebrates from the middle?–late Cenomanian La Cabaña Formation (Asturias, northern Spain): Palaeoenvironmental and palaeobiogeographic implications
article i nfo The Asturian La Cabana Formation, middle?-late Cenomanian in age, has yielded a rich and diverse assemblage of vertebrate microremains. The fauna consists of both marine and continentalExpand

A single sample from the La Matosa Member of the Barrios Formation, exposed during the excavation of the El Fabar Tunnel in Asturias, N Spain, yielded a rich and well-preserved Late CambrianExpand
The Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event in southwestern Gondwana: an example from the Andean Basin, northern Chile
Palaeoenvironmental and palaeoclimatic changes during the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (T-OAE) are reported from two successions deposited in the Andean Basin (Chile), based on a high-resolutionExpand
Did the Late Ordovician African ice sheet reach Europe
ABSTRACTPaleovalleys and their infi lling successions are described from outcrops and drill cores of the Cantabrian Range (northern Spain). A Hirnantia fauna and associated diamictites with striatedExpand
Was there a super-eruption on the Gondwanan coast 477 Ma ago?
Precise zircon and monazite ID-TIMS U–Pb dating of three Lower Ordovician altered ash-fall tuff beds (K-bentonites) in the Cantabrian Zone of NW Iberia yielded coeval ages together with an equivalentExpand
On the cultural character of metaphor: Some reflections on Universality and Culture-specificity in the language and cognition of time, especially in Amerindian languages
The paper is devoted to an analysis of the relation between language and culture in the context of Conceptual Metaphor Theory (CMT). Section 2 deals in an explicitly critical way with some problemsExpand

Early Ordovician–Devonian Passive Margin Stage in the Gondwanan Units of the Iberian Massif
Progressive opening of the Rheic Ocean led to the drifting away of one or several ribbon terranes, generally ascribed to Avalonia, and inaugurated a passive margin stage on the newly formed margin ofExpand
