15 p, 3.6 MB Bone histology provides insights into the life history mechanisms underlying dwarfing in hipparionins / Orlandi Oliveras, Guillem (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Nacarino Meneses, Carmen (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Köhler, Meike (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Size shifts may be a by-product of alterations in life history traits driven by natural selection. Although this approach has been proposed for islands, it has not yet been explored in continental faunas. [...]

Flying squirrels are the only group of gliding mammals with a remarkable diversity and wide geographical range. However, their evolutionary story is not well known. Thus far, identification of extinct flying squirrels has been exclusively based on dental features, which, contrary to certain postcranial characters, are not unique to them. [...]

16 p, 1.5 MB Inferring locomotor behaviours in Miocene New World monkeys using finite element analysis, geometric morphometrics and machine-learning classification techniques applied to talar morphology / Püschel, Thomas A. (University of Manchester. School of Earth and Environmental Sciences) ; Marcé Nogué, Jordi (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Gladman, Justin T. (Duke University. Department of Engineering, Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility) ; Bobe, René (University of Oxford. Institute of Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology) ; Sellers, William I. (University of Manchester. School of Earth and Environmental Sciences)
The talus is one of the most commonly preserved post-cranial elements in the platyrrhine fossil record. Talar morphology can provide information about postural adaptations because it is the anatomical structure responsible for transmitting body mass forces from the leg to the foot. [...]

16 p, 9.9 MB An Amphisbaenian skull from the European Miocene and the evolution of Mediterranean worm lizards / Bolet Mercadal, Arnau (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Fortuny Terricabras, Josep (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Almécija, Sergio (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Robles Giménez, Josep Maria (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The evolution of blanid amphisbaenians (Mediterranean worm lizards) is mainly inferred based on molecular studies, despite their fossils are common in Cenozoic European localities. This is because the fossil record exclusively consists in isolated elements of limited taxonomic value. [...]

10 p, 508.7 KB Early origin for human-Like precision grasping : a comparative study of pollical distal phalanges in fossil hominins / Almécija, Sergio (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Moyà Solà, Salvador (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Institució Catalana de Recerca i Estudis Avançats
Background: The morphology of human pollical distal phalanges (PDP) closely reflects the adaptation of human hands for refined precision grip with pad-to-pad contact. The presence of these precision grip-related traits in the PDP of fossil hominins has been related to human-like hand proportions (i. [...]

(Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The controversial European genus Allodaposuchus is currently composed of two species (A. precedens, A. subjuniperus) and it has been traditionally considered a basal eusuchian clade of crocodylomorphs. [...]
