A new high-resolution, c. 1 Ma mammalian record in continental Eocene–Oligocene strata in the Hampshire Basin is used to investigate the nature and timing of the major Europe-wide mammalian faunal turnover termed the Grande Coupure. Whether this was caused by climate change or by competition with taxa dispersing from Asia is controversial. The mammalian faunas in this record, after rarefaction analysis, show a sharp reduction in diversity only after the Grande Coupure. Improved correlation of… Expand
