Dorcatherium naui and pecoran ruminants from the late Middle Miocene Gratkorn locality (Austria)
TLDR
Morphological data from this work in combination with isotopic measurements indicate a niche partitioning for the ruminants from Gratkorn with subcanopy browsing, top canopy browsing and even a certain amount of frugivory (Dorcatherium naui and Micromeryx flourensianus).
Ruminantia from the middle Miocene of the Gračanica coalmine (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina)
Five different ruminant taxa were found in the Gračanica coal mine: the tragulid Dorcatherium vindebonense , a palaeomerycid (Palaeomerycidae gen. et sp. indet.), the giraffe Giraffokeryx sp., and
Palaeoecological differences underlie rare co-occurrence of Miocene European primates
TLDR
The results support the view that pliopithecoid primates preferred less humid habitats than hominoids, and reveal that differences in behavioural ecology were the main factor underpinning their rare co-occurrence during the European Miocene.

Taxonomy and Paleobiology of the Genus Chalicomys Kaup, 1832 (Rodentia, Castoridae), with the Description of a New Species from Abocador De Can Mata (Vallès-Penedès Basin, Catalonia, Spain)
TLDR
It is concluded that, like living Castor, these extinct beavers were efficient swimmers, highly committed to aquatic locomotion, which propelled mainly by means of hind feet paddling.
The genus Hispanomeryx (Mammalia, Ruminantia, Moschidae) and its bearing on musk deer phylogeny and systematics
TLDR
This analysis includes Hispanomeryx in a monophyletic Moschidae (musk deer) composed by Micromeryx, Hispanomeriesx, ‘Moschus’ grandeavus and extant Moschus, and recovers a clade composed by moschids and bovids; this is the first time that aMoschidae-Bovidae sister-group relationship is backed-up by morphological data.

Micromeryx Azanzae Sp. Nov. (Ruminantia: Moschidae) from the Middle-Upper Miocene of Spain, and the First Description of the Cranium of Micromeryx
TLDR
Previously unknown regions of the skeleton described here include the tympanohyal complex and most of the postcranial skeleton, both of which will be of great importance in reconstructing the sequence of character state changes within the Moschidae.
Less common ungulate species from Paşalar, middle Miocene of Anatolia (Turkey)
Abstract A tubulidentate, a chalicothere and a hyracoid from Pasalar (middle Miocene of Western Anatolia) are described. The tubulidentate is referred to Orycteropus sp. The chalicothere is new to
Rumiantes (Mammalia, Artiodactyla) del yacimiento de Somosaguas (Aragoniense medio, Madrid, España)
TLDR
En el transcurso oficial de estas excavaciones han sido recuperados algunos restos de rumiantes, que han podido ser determinados como pertenecientes a las familias Moschidae, Cervidae y Bovidae, estando representadas en Somosaguas por los generos Micromeryx y Tethytragus.
First partial face and upper dentition of the Middle Miocene hominoid Dryopithecus fontani from Abocador de Can Mata (Vallès-Penedès Basin, Catalonia, NE Spain): taxonomic and phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
Anatomical and morphometric analyses indicate that the new specimen shows a combination of lower facial features-hitherto unknown in Miocene hominoids-that resembles the facial pattern of Gorilla, thus providing the first nondental evidence of gorilla-like lower facial morphology in the fossil record.
Los cervidae (artiodactyla, mammalia) del mioceno de las cuencas del Duero, Tajo, Calatayud-Teruel, y Levante
SE ESTUDIAN LOS CERVIDOS MIOCENOS DE 30 YACIMIENTOS, LA MAYOR PARTE PROCEDENTES DE LA CUENCA DE CALATAYUD-TERUEL Y EL RESTO ESTAN DISPERSOS EN OTRAS CUENCAS CENTRALES (TAJO Y DUERO) Y LEVANTINAS
Brief communication: the oldest pliopithecid record in the Iberian Peninsula based on new material from the Vallès-Penedès Basin.
TLDR
It seems more likely that IPS35028 represents a previously unknown pliopithecid taxon, although a formal taxonomic recognition of its probable distinct status is not advisable, given the scarcity of the currently available material.
Paleoenvironments and paleoclimate of the Middle Miocene of central Spain: A reconstruction from dental wear of ruminants
TLDR
When competition and resource partitioning among ruminants found in Spain is reconstructed, results support the hypothesis that ecologically similar species maintained sympatry by exhibiting a generalistic (mixed) dietary behaviour.
