Postcranial evidence from early Homo from Dmanisi, Georgia.
TLDR
Newly excavated postcranial material from Dmanisi comprising a partial skeleton of an adolescent individual, associated with skull D2700/D2735, and the remains from three adult individuals shows that the postc Cranial anatomy of the D manisi hominins has a surprising mosaic of primitive and derived features.

BIOCHRONOLOGY OF SELECTED MAMMALS, MOLLUSCS AND OSTRACODS FROM THE MIDDLE PLIOCENE TO THE LATE PLEISTOCENE IN ITALY. THE STATE OF THE ART
The Authors have elaborated four range charts of mammalian (large and micro), molluscs and fresh-water and brackish ostracodes faunas, for the selected Plio-Pleistocene fossiliferous localities ofExpand
Evidence of earliest human occurrence in Europe: the site of Pirro Nord (Southern Italy)
TLDR
The lithic industry of Pirro Nord represents the oldest occurrence of the genus Homo in Europe as it is attributable to a chronological interval between 1.3 and 1.7 Ma, and supports the hypothesis that the species extended its range in Europe, probably from western Asia, during the first half of the Early Pleistocene.

A one-million-year-old Homo cranium from the Danakil (Afar) Depression of Eritrea
TLDR
The cranium was found in a succession of fluvio-deltaic and lacustrine deposits and is associated with a rich mammalian fauna of early to early-middle Pleistocene age, which means the human remains can be dated at ∼1 million years before present. Expand
Villafranchian: The long story of a Plio-Pleistocene European large mammal biochronologic unit
TLDR
The authors provide an update of the Villaranchian Mammal Age and its present significance, as well as providing a concept relatively common within the scientific literature of continental stratigraphers in Europe. Expand
Dispersal of the Canini (Mammalia, Canidae: Caninae) across Eurasia during the Late Miocene to Early Pleistocene
Abstract An analysis of the taxonomy and distribution of the Mio–Pliocene and Pleistocene Eucyon-like and Canis-like canids of the tribe Canini of Eurasia was performed, with a description of severalExpand
The Mio-Pliocene European primate fossil record: dynamics and habitat tracking.
TLDR
The results suggest that the primates track the changes in humidity through time and are stronger during the times of deep environmental change, when primates are found in their preferred habitats and non-primate localities have faunas better able to adapt to changing conditions. Expand
The evolution of Neogene terrestrial ecosystems in Europe

Oreopithecus was a bipedal ape after all: evidence from the iliac cancellous architecture.
TLDR
Digital image processing of calibrated hip bone radiographs reveals the occurrence of trabecular features, which, in humans and fossil hominids, are related to vertical support of the body weight, i.e., to bipedality. Expand
