The large-sized darter Anhinga pannonica (Aves, Anhingidae) from the late Miocene hominid Hammerschmiede locality in Southern Germany

Fossils of the darter Anhinga pannonica Lambrecht, 1916 from two late Miocene avifaunas in Southern Germany represent the most comprehensive record of this species and includes most major postcranial elements except for the tarsometatarsus.

Late Pleistocene and Earliest Holocene avifauna from the Loutra Almopias Cave (Macedonia, Greece)

The bird fauna of the Loutra Almopias Cave comprised eight orders, 22 families, 41 genera and at least 47 species (68 different taxa) established based on 551 avian bone finds. The Loutra Almopias

Pleistocene non-passeriform landbirds from Shiriya,northeast Japan

Located on the eastern margin of Eurasia, the Japanese Archipelago hosts a unique modern fauna of terrestrial vertebrates including landbirds which show a high proportion of endemic

A Villafranchian Hipparion-Bearing Mammal Fauna from Sésklo (E. Thessaly, Greece): Implications for the Question of Hipparion–Equus Sympatry in Europe

Recently collected fossil material in the Villafranchian locality of Sésklo, as well as a re-evaluation of a pre-existing, partly-published museum collection, allow the recognition of a lower faunal

Vertebrates from the Pontian of the Shkodova Gora locality (Northwestern Black Sea Region, Upper Miocene)

Remains of fishes, turtles, birds, and mammals are described from the Upper Miocene (MN13) Shkodova Gora locality (Ukraine, Odessa Region), the only representative locality of Pontian large

The absence of taxa shared with approximately contemporaneous avian assemblage from the Hyargas-Nuur 2 locality in eastern Mongolia is evidence that at least two separate zoogeographical units of temperate avifaunas existed in the Late Miocene of Eurasia.

Late Miocene (Early Turolian) vertebrate faunas and associated biotic record of the Northern Caucasus: Geology, palaeoenvironment, biochronology

Abstract Late Miocene continental deposits overlying the Khersonian marine sediments near the city of Maikop bordering the Belaya River (North Caucasus) yielded a diverse biotic record including

An Early Pleistocene Snake Eagle , Circaetus haemusensis sp . n . ( Aves , Accipitriformes ) from Varshets , Northwestern Bulgaria

A new species of Snake Eeagle is described based on seven finds of fore and hind limbs and axial skeleton collected from the middle Villafranchian locality (SCT 12 of MNQ 17) near Varshets,

Outgroup comparison with the basal rollers described in this study suggests that the fairly long wing of the Coraciidae and the elongated tarsometatarsus of the Brachypteraciidae are derived features of these families.

The anseriform relationships of Anatalavis Olson and Parris (Anseranatidae), with a new species from the Lower Eocene London Clay

The Eocene specimen from the lower Eocene London Clay of Essex, England, possesses derived characters of the coracoid and furcula that show it to belong to the Anseranatidae, which previously had no fossil record.
