The uneven distribution of species richness is a fundamental and unexplained pattern of vertebrate biodiversity. Although species richness in groups like mammals, birds, or teleost fishes is often…
Did genome duplication drive the origin of teleosts? A comparative study of diversification in ray-finned fishes
The results suggest that the causes of diversification in large clades are likely to be complex and not easily ascribed to a single event, even a dramatic one such as a whole genome duplication.
First joint record of Mesopithecus and cf. Macaca in the Miocene of Europe.
A multi-locus timetree of surgeonfishes (Acanthuridae, Percomorpha), with revised family taxonomy.
Mare versus Lago-mare: marine fishes and the Mediterranean environment at the end of the Messinian Salinity Crisis

During the late Messinian, c. 5.5 Ma ago, after evaporitic sedimentation and before the Pliocene flooding, the Mediterranean recorded a major environmental change testified by deposition of…
OREOCHROMIS LORENZOI, A NEW SPECIES OF TILAPIINE CICHLID FROM THE LATE MIOCENE OF CENTRAL ITALY
Tilapiine cichlid Oreochromis lorenzoi and additional examples from other fossil fishes provide evidence of faunal exchanges between Africa and the northern coasts of the Mediterranean during the Miocene.
Did the Mediterranean marine reflooding precede the Mio–Pliocene boundary? Paleontological and geochemical evidence from upper Messinian sequences of Tuscany, Italy
First multi-locus timetree of seabreams and porgies (Percomorpha: Sparidae)
This study corroborates the non-monophyly of the traditional sparids without the inclusion of the family Centracanthidae, as well as that of many sparid genera, and finds robust support for a scenario of multiple radiations.
Late Messinian mollusks and vertebrates from Moncucco Torinese, north-western Italy. Paleoecological and paleoclimatological implications
The systematic analysis of more than 20,000 fossils (Vertebrata and Mollusca), recovered from the post-evaporitic Messinian (5.41–5.33 Ma) succession of Moncucco Torinese (NW Italy), resulted in the…
