Evidence for an African-Iberian mammal dispersal during the pre-evaporitic Messinian
The accurate timing of biogeographic dispersal can be determined by examining the age of fossiliferous strata on either side of a physical barrier. Here we show that African mammals migrated toExpand
Kretzoiarctos gen. nov., the Oldest Member of the Giant Panda Clade
TLDR
A new ailuropodine genus is described, Kretzoiarctos gen. nov., based on remains from two Middle Miocene Spanish localities, which can be considered the oldest recorded member of the giant panda lineage, which has significant implications for understanding the origins of this clade from a paleobiogeographic viewpoint.

First Early Pliocene micromammal faunas from Venta del Moro (Cabriel Basin, Spain): new data on the Messinian dispersal of Debruijnimys
Based on the study of the micromammal assemblages from the localities of La Bullana 2B and La Bullana 3 (Valencia, E Spain) we propose an Early Pliocene age (MN14) for both sites. The presence of aExpand
Messinian Evidence for an African-Iberian mammal dispersal during the pre-evaporitic

Complete Description of the Skull and Mandible of the Giant Mustelid Eomellivora piveteaui Ozansoy, 1965 (Mammalia, Carnivora, Mustelidae), from Batallones (Mn10), Late Miocene (Madrid, Spain)
ABSTRACT We describe cranial, mandibular, and dental remains of five individuals of the giant mustelid Eomellivora piveteaui Ozansoy, 1965, from the late Miocene (MN10) site of Cerro de losExpand
Anatomy of the “false thumb” of Tremarctos ornatus (Carnivora, Ursidae, Tremarctinae) : phylogenetic and functional implications
TLDR
The radial sesamoid or “false thumb” of the spectacled bear (Tremarctos ornatus) is described, showing its great morphological similarities with that of the giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) and the differences with the rest of the Ursidae. Expand
The scimitar-toothed cat Machairodus aphanistus (Carnivora: Felidae) in the Vallès-Penedès Basin (NE Iberian Peninsula)
Abstract Here, we revise all the published and unpublished scimitar-toothed cat remains from the Valles-Penedes Basin (NE Iberian Peninsula), in order to confirm their taxonomic attribution toExpand
Una nueva especie de Agriarctos (Ailuropodinae, Ursidae, Carnivora) en la localidad de Nombrevilla 2 (Zaragoza, España)-A New species of Agriarctos (Ailuropodinae, Ursidae, Carnivora) in the
The present study documents a new primitive ursid species, Agriarctos beatrix from the Spanish locality of Nombrevilla 2 (Calatayud-Daroca basin, province of Zaragoza). The new fossils of NombrevillaExpand
The Ventian mammal age (Latest Miocene): present state
This work has been possible thank to the research projects CGL2011-28681, CGL2009-11096, CGL2011-28877 and CGL2011-25754 of the Spanish Ministerio de Economia y Competitividad
Paleodiversity of the Superfamily Ursoidea (Carnivora, Mammalia) in the Spanish Neogene, related to environmental changes
In the present study we analyse the diversity of the Superfamily Ursoidea during the Neogene of the Iberian Peninsula to further compare it with that of the Neogene of Western Europe to find theExpand
