Anatomy of the arvicoline radiation (Rodentia): palaeogeographical, palaeoecological history and evolutionary data
Chaline, J., Brunet-Lecomte, P. & Montuire, S, Biogéosciences-Dijon (UMR CNRS 5561) et Paléobiodiversité et Préhistoire (EPHE), Université de Bourgogne, Centre des Sciences de la Terre, 6 bd.Expand
Phylogeny of the Arvicolidae (Rodentia): Biochemical and Paleontological Evidence
Biochemical criteria support current views on arvicolid evolution, including the homogeneity of the family, a fact that agrees with the recent origin of the Arvicolidae. Expand
Major palaeohydrographic changes in Alpine foreland during the Pliocene ‐ Pleistocene
The changing palaeogeographical pattern of Alpine deposits across the European forelands can be traced by identifying mineral assemblages and establishing the chronology of Pliocene-PleistoceneExpand
Arvicolid Data (Arvicolidae, Rodentia) and Evolutionary Concepts
Simpson (1944, 1953) distinguished two major features of evolution, phyletic evolution or anagenesis (Rensch, 1954) on the one hand, and splitting or cladogenesis on the other. According to thisExpand
New ochotonids (Lagomorpha) from the Pleistocene of France
The mammalian fauna of insectivores, rodents and lagomorphs found at Les Valerots (Nuits-Saint-Georges, Cote-d’Or) dated as early Pleistocene based on the association of Hypolagus Dice, 1917, MimomysExpand
Morphological evolution and phylogenetic relationships of the European ground voles (Arvicolidae, Rodentia)
An Allophaiomyan origin of ground voles has been confirmed and the evolution of Mediterranean and middle Europcan groups has now been clarified and Primitive species of middle European groups display plesiomorphics. Expand
Quantification of cranial convergences in arvicolids (Rodentia)
Cranial convergence in nine species of arvicolids is quantified phenetically using geometric morphometry. In a preliminary step, a hypothesis about phyletic relationships is proposed as a frameworkExpand
On the Fractal Structure of Evolutionary Trees
A fractal tree model is applied to the acceleration observed in the economic crisis/no-crisis pattern in Western and pre-Columbian civilizations and finds that these data are consistent with a log-periodic law of acceleration or deceleration. Expand
Missing Records and Depositional Breaks in French Late Pleistocene Cave Sediments
Abstract Cave entrance and rock shelter infillings are positioned within the Pleistocene chronology for three areas of France (northern Alps, Franche-Comte, and Perigord). Despite minor localExpand
The last glacial/interglacial record of rodent remains from the Gigny karst sequence in the French Jura used for palaeoclimatic and palaeoecological reconstructions
Abstract A multidisciplinary approach has produced an exceptional chronological log of climatic patterns for the Upper Pleistocene sequence of Gigny Cave (Jura, France) covering the Pre-Eemian,Expand
