The Liang Bua faunal remains: a 95k.yr. sequence from Flores, East Indonesia.
Revised stratigraphy and chronology for Homo floresiensis at Liang Bua in Indonesia
New stratigraphic and chronological evidence from Liang Bua is reported that does not support the ages inferred previously for the H. floresiensis holotype, or the time of last appearance of this species.
Environmental dynamics during the onset of the Middle Stone Age in eastern Africa
Aspects of Acheulean technology in this region imply that, as early as 615,000 years ago, greater stone material selectivity and wider resource procurement coincided with an increased pace of land-lake fluctuation, potentially anticipating the adaptability of MSA hominins.

Evidence reviewed herein shows that features exhibited by H. floresiensis can be explained by existing models of insular evolution and followed evolutionary pathways similar to those of the other terrestrial vertebrates inhabiting Pleistocene Flores.
Description of Pterosaurian ( Pterodactyloidea : Anhangueridae , Brasileodactylus ) remains from the Lower Cretaceous of Brazil
The results are being viewed in the light of the ongoing discussion about Ornithocheiridae-Anhangueridae problem as pinpointed by Veldmeijer (2006), and recent literature, such as Rodriques & Kellner (2008), is not included in the discussion.
A new species of giant marabou stork (Aves: Ciconiiformes) from the Pleistocene of Liang Bua, Flores (Indonesia)
Osteological and biometric characters suggest that L. robustus is most closely related to L. dubius, which is a new species of giant marabou stork on Flores and responses to an unbalanced, insular environment with abundant prey items and a lack of mammalian carnivores, and emphasize the extraordinary nature of the Homo floresiensis fauna.

The main historic drivers of extinctions on islands, patterns in extinction chronologies between islands, and the potential for restoring ecosystems through reintroducing extirpated species are reviewed.
Avian remains from the Early/Middle Pleistocene of the So'a Basin, central Flores, Indonesia, and their palaeoenvironmental significance
Age and context of the oldest known hominin fossils from Flores.
The age and context of the Mata Menge hominin specimens and associated archaeological findings are described, indicating a relatively dry climate in the So'a Basin during the early Middle Pleistocene, while various lines of evidence suggest the hominins inhabited a savannah-like open grassland habitat with a wetland component.
Late Pleistocene-Holocene Non-Passerine Avifauna of Liang Bua (Flores, Indonesia)
ABSTRACT Liang Bua, a limestone cave on the Indonesian island of Flores, has a depositional sequence that spans the last 95,000 years and includes well-preserved faunal remains. Birds are well…
