The Preliminary Analysis of Cave Lion Cubs Panthera spelaea (Goldfuss, 1810) from the Permafrost of Siberia

A preliminary description is presented of the well-preserved frozen mummies of two cubs of the extinct cave lion Panthera spelaea (finds of 2017–2018, Semyuelyakh River, Yakutia, eastern Siberia,

A study of a frozen mummy of a wild horse from the Holocene of Yakutia, East Siberia, Russia

The late geological age of the Yukagir horse is an indication that this species survived the Pleistocene–Holocene crisis and lived through the Mid-Holocene in northern Eastern Siberia.

The paper discusses the Białowieża bison (Bison bonasus bonasus) as a museum exhibit in the 18th – early 20th centuries, basing on the analysis of archival documents, mainly from St. Petersburg. One

Genomic variability in the extinct steppe bison (Bison priscus) compared to the European bison (Bison bonasus)

Investigation of historic EB samples could help resolve phylogenetic relationships, the role of the recent bottleneck, and provide information for conservation management to reduce the incidence of disease in the population and maintain its evolutionary potential.

Global climate change at the end of the Pleistocene led to extinction across the huge territories of the Northern Hemisphere of indicator species of large mammals of the mammoth fauna. Undoubtedly,

Aurochs roamed along the SW coast of Andalusia (Spain) during Late Pleistocene

In the Iberian Peninsula the fossil record of artiodactyls spans over 53 million years. During the Pleistocene, wild cattle species such as Bison and especially Bos became common. In Late

A New Glance at Old Samples: Remains of Freshwater Invertebrates Associated with Mummified Carcasses of Large Quaternary Mammals

Carcasses of mammals with well-preserved soft tissues from the permafrost of Siberia and northern North America are among the most important sources of our knowledge on Quaternary environments.

Landscape Changes during the Pleistocene–Holocene Transition and Range Dynamics of Large Herbivorous Mammals of Northern Asia

This work studies the effect of the reduction of steppe and tundra landscapes in Northern Asia during the Late Pleistocene and Holocene climatic changes on the ranges of large herbivorous mammals.



The first finding of a frozen Holocene bison (Bison priscus Bojanus, 1827) carcass in Chukotka

A partial carcass of a primeval bison of the Holocene Age was found in 2012 in Bilibino region of Chukchi Autonoo mous Region, at the mouth of the Rauchua River, and yielded data on the biology and natural environment of primevalbison on Chukotka in subglacial time.

Late Pleistocene northward-dispersing Bison antiquus from the Bighill Creek Formation, Gallelli Gravel Pit, Alberta, Canada, and the fate of Bison occidentalis

Late Pleistocene bison skeletal remains from the Gallelli Gravel Pit in the Bighill Creek Formation at Calgary, Alberta, document at least two individuals, including the largest postglacial bison

Radiocarbon chronologies and extinction dynamics of the Late Quaternary mammalian megafauna of the Taimyr Peninsula, Russian Federation

Abstract This paper presents 75 new radiocarbon dates based on late Quaternary mammal remains recovered from eastern Taimyr Peninsula and adjacent parts of the northern Siberian lowlands, Russian

Bison Evolution and Zoogeography in North America During the Pleistocene

Neither the "orthogenetic" nor the "wave" theory adequately accounts for the evolution of bison in North America; rather, the fossils can only be explained by a combination of invasions from Siberia and evolutionary changes that occurred in the new environment.

A combination of ancient DNA, 14C dating, hydrogen and oxygen isotopes, and collagen sequencing is used to explore the colonization history of one of the few other large mammals to have successfully migrated into the Americas at this time: the North American elk (Cervus elaphus canadensis).

Preliminary analyses of the frozen mummies of mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius), bison (Bison priscus) and horse (Equus sp.) from the Yana-Indigirka Lowland, Yakutia, Russia.

Whereas the woolly mammoth and the Pleistocene horse were represented by partial frozen bodies, the steppe bison body was recovered in an absolutely complete state and some of the tissues mummified.
