Abstract LOWER MIOCENE BIRD AND MAMMAL FOOTPRINTS FROM LA RIOJA (EBRO BASIN, SPAIN). A new site carrying vertebrate footprints is described at Cenicero (Ebro Basin, Spain). The footprints are preserved in sandstone beds located within the “Transition Unit”, between the Agenian (early Miocene) Nájera and Haro formations. This level is placed between local biozones Y and Z. Fourteen blocks are studied; they contain 72 bird, 46 artiodactyl, and six perissodactyl footprints. Bird footprints… Expand
Abstract Small shorebird-like footprints have been discovered in Cenicero (La Rioja, Spain). They are preserved in a sandstone block of the transition unit between the Nájera and Haro Formations fromExpand
Uvaichnites riojana: A new crane-like bird ichnotaxon from the lower Miocene of La Rioja (Ebro Basin, Spain)
Abstract A new bird ichnotaxon found in Cenicero (La Rioja, Ebro Basin, Spain) is described here. The footprints are preserved in sandstone beds in a central-distal alluvial fringe with aExpand
Análisis paleoambiental de los depósitos aluviales de la sección de Cenicero a partir de las asociaciones de ostrácodos (Mioceno inferior, NO de la Cuenca del Ebro)

Avian diversity and behavior in an Eocene coastal plain, Svalbard: the ichnological evidence
Abstract This study presents an ichnotaxonomical assessment of bird footprints from a coastal plain setting in the Eocene lower to middle Aspelintoppen Formation in Brongniartfjellet and Storvola,Expand
Multi-aged social behaviour based on artiodactyl tracks in an early Miocene palustrine wetland (Ebro Basin, Spain)
The morphologic and palaeoecologic data presented here suggest that the trackmakers were a group of anthracotheres with a livelihood similar to current hippos, and it is proposed that this tracksite is the product of a social behaviour, particularly gregariousness, of a multi-age group of artiodactyls ~19 Ma ago.

Nuevos datos bioestratigráficos y paleoecológicos del Mioceno medio (Aragoniense) del área de Tarazona de Aragón (Cuenca del Ebro, provincia de Zaragoza, España)
In this contribution the vertebrate microfossils of two new localities (Melero-20 and Melero-30) near Tarazona de Aragon village (Ebro Basin, Spain) are described. The fossil association isExpand
Estudio sistemático y bioestratigráfico de los Eomyidae (Rodentia) del Oligoceno superior y Mioceno inferior español = Taxonomy and biostratigraphy of Eomyidae (Rodentia) from the upper Oligocene and lower Miocene of Spain
This paper is the first fundamental study on Spanish Eomyidae. The flourishing time of this family in Europe was the Late Oligocene and Early Miocene. Four genera are recognized in this time span:Expand
Ichnotaxonomy of Bird-Like Footprints: An Example from the Late Triassic-Early Jurassic of Northwest Argentina
Abstract The ichnotaxobases previously used to classify avian-like footprints, at the ichnogeneric, ichnospecific, and ichnofamily level, are varied and contrasting. Consequently, an agreement on theExpand
Bird and Mammal Footprints From the Tertiary of Navarre (Western Pyrenees)
A rich variety of vertebrate footprints is known from a number of Upper Eocene to Lower Miocene localities of Navarre (western Pyrenees). The sediments were deposited in a wide range of depositionalExpand
Paleoecología del género Anchitherium von Meyer, 1834 (Equidae, Perissodactyla, Mammalia) en España: evidencias a partir de las faunas de macromamíferos Paleoecology of the genus Anchitherium von Meyer, 1834 (Equidae, Perissodacyla, Mammalia) in Spain: evidence from macromammal faunas
The results indicate that it is possible to infer the biome of a locality based on its macromammal fauna and the presence in the Iberian Miocene of temperate evergreen forests, tropical deciduous forests and savannas. Expand
Revisión sistemática del género Anchitherium Meyer 1834 (Equidae; Perissodactyla) en España
A systematic revision of the genus Anchitherium Meyer 1834 is made in this paper. In Spain Anchitherium is registered by the first time at MN 3 zone and survives until the MN 9 zone. The resultsExpand
The Upper Eocene South Pyrenean Coastal deposits (Liedena sandstone, navarre): Sedimentary facies, benthic formanifera and avian ichnology
SummaryDuring the 1960's and the 1970's the Liedena Sandstone was a type deposit for “flysch-like facies” (sandstone and lutite alternations) of coastal sedimentary systems. However, the depositionalExpand
