A Middle Miocene vertebrate assemblage from the Czech part of the Vienna Basin : implications for the paleoenvironments of the Central Paratethys / Březina, Jakub (Moravian Museum. Department of Geology and Paleontology) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Ivanov, Martin (Masaryk University. Department of Geological Sciences) ; Hanáček, Martin (Masaryk University. Department of Geography) ; Luján, Àngel H. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Czujan's sandpit is an abandoned quarry in the Vienna Basin (Mikulov, Czech Republic) that has yielded an important middle Miocene vertebrate assemblage. Here we re-describe the site from the perspective of sedimentology, taphonomy, and paleoenvironments, and further review the biochronology of the fauna to clarify the age. [...]

Dryopithecine palaeobiodiversity in the Iberian Miocene revisited on the basis of molar endostructural morphology / Fortuny Terricabras, Josep (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Zanolli, Clément (Université de Bordeaux) ; Bernardini, Federico (Università Ca'Foscari. Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici) ; Tuniz, Claudio (Università Ca'Foscari. Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Extensive fieldwork at Abocador de Can Mata (north-east Iberian Peninsula) has uncovered a previously unsuspected diversity of catarrhine primates in the middle Miocene (12. 5-11. 6 Ma) of Europe. However, the distinction of the great ape genera Pierolapithecus and Anoiapithecus from Dryopithecus (supported by craniodental differences) has been disputed by some authors. [...]

(Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Humans diverged from apes (chimpanzees, specifically) toward the end of the Miocene ~9. 3 million to 6. 5 million years ago. Understanding the origins of the human lineage (hominins) requires reconstructing the morphology, behavior, and environment of the chimpanzee-human last common ancestor. [...]

A review on Bison schoetensacki and its closest relatives through the early-Middle Pleistocene transition: Insights from the Vallparadís Section (NE Iberian Peninsula) and other European localities / Sorbelli, Leonardo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Cherin, Marco (Università degli Studi di Perugia. Dipartimento di Fisica e Geologia (Italy)) ; Moullé, Pierre-Élie (Musée de Préhistoire Régionale de Menton (France)) ; Brugal, Jean-Philip (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. Aix-Marseille Université. Minist. Culture (France)) ; Madurell Malapeira, Joan (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The evolutionary history of Bison is a matter of debate due to the scarcity of fossil remains from the earliest members of this clade and the close morphological similarities among species. To clarify the taxonomic status of the earliest stouter bison and their relationships to their putative ancestor, Leptobos, as well as other primitive forms traditionally referred to subgenus Bison (Eobison), we carry out a complete revision of the available European fossil record, with a focus on the forms occurring during the Early-Middle Pleistocene Transition.

The record of Prodeinotherium in the Iberian Peninsula: new data from the Vallès-Penedès basin / Gasamans, Natalia (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Luján, Àngel H. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Pons-Monjo, Guillem (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Obradó, Pau (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Casanovas-Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Deinotheres (Proboscidea, Deinotheriidae) are a clade of non-elephantiform proboscideans that originated in Africa and dispersed into Eurasia by the early Miocene. In Europe, deinotheres are first recorded in Greece during MN3, although they did not become a common faunal element throughout Europe until MN4. [...]

Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Dentognathic remains of European Middle Pleistocene Vulpini are scarce and fragmentary. They have classically been attributed to several species, but many taxonomic and phylogenetic uncertainties remain. [...]

32 p, 1.5 MB First record of Latonia gigantea (Anura, Alytidae) from the Iberian Peninsula / Villa, Andrea (Università degli Studi di Torino. Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra) ; Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Hernández Luján, Àngel (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Almécija, Sergio (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The single extant species of the anuran genus Latonia lives in Israel, but in the fossil record the genus is known mainly from Europe, spanning from the Oligocene to the early Pleistocene. Here we describe new remains of Latonia from the early to late Miocene of the Vallès-Penedès Basin (NE Iberian Peninsula), coming from the following localities: Sant Mamet (MN4), Sant Quirze and Trinxera del Ferrocarril (MN7+8), and Castell de Barberà, Can Poncic 1 and Can Llobateres 1 (MN9).

The past geographic distribution of the genus Theropithecus (Primates: Cercopithecidae) is mainly restricted to Africa. Outside that continent, the earliest reported records of this genus consist of a calcaneus of cf. [...]

15 p, 3.4 MB Palaeoecological differences underlie rare co-occurrence of Miocene European primates / DeMiguel, Daniel (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Domingo, Laura (Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Departamento de Geodinámica, Estratigrafía y Paleontología) ; Sánchez, Israel M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (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)
Background: The two main primate groups recorded throughout the European Miocene, hominoids and pliopithecoids, seldom co-occur. Due to both their rarity and insufficiently understood palaeoecology, it is currently unclear whether the infrequent co-occurrence of these groups is due to sampling bias or reflects different ecological preferences.
