New macaque remains from the Middle Pleistocene of Gruta da Aroeira (Almonda karst system, Portugal)
The Middle Pleistocene site of Gruta da Aroeira, in the Almonda karst system (Torres Novas, central Portugal; Supplementary Online Material [SOM] Fig. S1), has yielded a rich Acheulean lithicExpand
Macaque remains from the early Pliocene of the Iberian Peninsula.
The described material represents the oldest well-dated Pliocene record of macaques in Iberia, predating the record of Paradolichopithecus by almost 1.5 million years. Expand
A 2Ma old baboon-like monkey from Northern Greece and new evidence to support the Paradolichopithecus - Procynocephalus synonymy (Primates: Cercopithecidae).
The combination of the available direct and indirect fossil evidence, including the new cranium from Dafnero, revives an earlier hypothesis that considers these two sparsely documented genera as synonyms, and the timing and possible causes of the rise and demise of Paradolichopithecus - Procynocephalus are discussed.

Los mamíferos del Plioceno y Pleistoceno de la Península Ibérica
Espana es el pais con mayor numero de yacimientos bien conservados, cantidad y calidad de fosiles de todo el continente europeo. Aqui se describe el patrimonio paleobiologico correspondiente alExpand
The radiation of macaques out of Africa: Evidence from mitogenome divergence times and the fossil record.
Based on phylogenetic results with estimated divergence times and the recorded chronostratigraphic ranges of extinct macaque and baboon taxa, the evolutionary radiations of both genera are compared from paleobiogeographic and adaptive viewpoints. Expand


Dentognathic remains of Macaca (Primates, Cercopithecidae) from the late early Pleistocene of Terrassa (Catalonia, Spain).
This paper presents a meta-analyses of the EMMARM, a probabilistic analysis of the response of the immune system to the presence of carbon dioxide. Expand
Villafranchian large mammals from the Iberian Peninsula: paleobiogeography, paleoecology and dispersal events
The Pleistocene of the Iberian Peninsula is currently a focus of intense paleontological, archaeological and geological research. To a large extent, these inquiries are intended to decipher theExpand
The oldest human fossil in Europe, from Orce (Spain).
A new fossil hominin tooth from the site of Barranco León is described, dated between 1.02 and 1.73 Ma (millions of years ago) by Electron Spin Resonance (ESR), which makes it the oldest from Western Europe. Expand
The first hominin of Europe
The discovery of a human mandible associated with an assemblage of Mode 1 lithic tools and faunal remains bearing traces of hominin processing in stratigraphic level TE9 at the site of the Sima del Elefante, Atapuerca, Spain emerges as the oldest, most accurately dated record of human occupation in Europe, to the authors' knowledge.

Systematic Review of the Barbary Macaque, Macaca Sylvanus (Linnaeus, 1758)
Abstract The Barbary macaque, Macaca sylvanus (Linnaeus, 1758), is systematically reviewed, based on a study of 103 specimens and survey of relevant literature. This review includes analyses ofExpand
First record of Mesopithecus (Cercopithecidae, Colobinae) from the Miocene of the Iberian Peninsula.
The reported remains considerably enlarge southwestwards the known geographic distribution of Mesopithecus, and the presence of M. pentelicus at this site agrees well with previous paleoenvironmental and sedimentological evidence, indicating a lacustrine depositional environment with strong hydrologic seasonality. Expand
Phylogeography of Barbary macaques (Macaca sylvanus) and the origin of the Gibraltar colony.
There is a deep division between two main subpopulations in Algeria and one marked secondary division, with haplotypes generally matching geographical distribution, whereas Moroccan sub Populations show little divergence in hypervariable region I sequences and little correspondence with geographical distribution.

Macaques at the margins: the biogeography and extinction of Macaca sylvanus in Europe
The genus Macaca (Primates: Cercopithecidae) originated in Africa, dispersed into Europe in the Late Miocene and resided there until the Late Pleistocene. In this contribution, we provide an overviewExpand
Late Villafranchian Mammuthus meridionalis (Nesti, 1825) from the Iberian Peninsula: Dentognathic remains from Incarcal-I (Crespià, Girona) and Venta Micena (Orce, Granada)
Abstract The late Early Pleistocene (Late Villafranchian) paleontological sites of Incarcal-I (Crespia, Catalonia, Spain) and Venta Micena (Orce, Andalusia, Spain), which are approximately 800 kmExpand
The Evolutionary History and Palaeo-Ecology of Primate Predation: Macaca sylvanus from Plio-Pleistocene Europe as a Case Study
This article explored co-occurrence and potential interaction between carnivorans (with particular reference to felids) and Macaca sylvanus, which was widespread and present in Europe from the late Miocene to the late Pleistocene. Expand
