The record of Deinotheriidae from the Miocene of the Swiss Jura Mountains (Jura Canton, Switzerland)

A third species, Deinotherium levius, from the locality of Charmoille in Ajoie, is reported herein for the first time in Switzerland, correlating to the European Mammal biozones MN5 to MN9.

Out of Africa: An alternative scenario for the first human dispersal in Eurasia

Recent paleoanthropological evidence from the early Pleistocene site of Dmanisi in Georgia has revealed that the first hominins out of Africa were more archaic than the coeval African and Asian Homo

SIMILARITY RELATIONSHIPS AMONG GREEK MIDDLE MIOCENE TO EARLY - MIDDLE PLEISTOCENE MAMMAL ASSEMBLAGES

The Greek fossil record of small and large mammal Local Faunal Assemblages is studied and compared by means of cluster analysis techniques using Jaccard similarity index and unweighted pair-group

The family Ursidae appears to be a sensitive mammal group, promptly reflecting large but also small scale changes in global environmental conditions. Although the Greek ursid record is extremely

A late Miocene mammalian fauna from Olba in the Sarrión Depression, eastern Spain

The Olba vertebrate locality, discovered in 1974, was mentioned in several publications, but its fauna has never been studied. The locality is situated in the Sarrión Depression, on the road from La

Evolution of Neogene Mammals in Eurasia: Environmental Forcing and Biotic Interactions

It is suggested that species with evolutionary novelties arise predominantly in “species factories” that develop under harsh environmental conditions, under dominant physical forcing, whereas exceptionally mild environments give rise to “oases in the desert,” characterized by strong competition and survival of relics.
