3 p, 887.1 KB Un fòssil excepcional revela quan els esquirols van conquerir el cel / Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
La troballa d'un nou fòssil de rosegador que en un primer moment es va confondre amb un petit primat, va superar totes les expectatives: és l'esquelet més antic d'un esquirol volador. Aquest exemplar aporta noves pistes al debat sobre els seus orígens i indica que els esquirols voladors van evolucionar a partir de formes arborícoles fa entre 25 i 31 milions d'anys. [...]
El hallazgo de un fósil del roedor que en un primer momento se confundió con un pequeño primate, superó todas las expectativas: es el esqueleto más antiguo de una ardilla voladora. Este ejemplar aporta nuevas pistas al debate sobre sus orígenes e indica que las ardillas voladoras evolucionaron a partir de formas arborícolas hace entre 25 y 31 millones de años. [...]
The discovery of a rodent fossil that was initially mistaken for a small primate, exceeded all expectations: it is the oldest skeleton of a flying squirrel. This specimen provides new clues to the debate about its origins and indicates that flying squirrels evolved from arboreal forms between 25 and 31 million years ago. [...]

10 p, 433.2 KB A new endemic genus of eomyid rodents from the early Miocene of Japan / Kimura, Yuri (National Museum of Nature and Science) ; Tomida, Yukimitsu (National Museum of Nature and Science) ; Kalthoff, Daniela C. (Swedish Museum of Natural History) ; Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Mörs, Thomas (Swedish Museum of Natural History) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona

20 p, 2.7 MB The range and extent of the Vallesian Crisis (Late Miocene) : new prospects based on the micromammal record from the Vallès-Penedès basin (Catalonia, Spain) / Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Van den Hoek Ostende, L.W. (Naturalis Biodiversity Center) ; Furió, Marc (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Madern, P.A. (Anneke) (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The Vallesian Crisis was initially recognized as a local event, which implied the extinction of certain rodent and artiodactyl genera coinciding with the early/late Vallesian boundary (at 9. 7 Ma). Following works increased the range and extent of this event to encompass all Europe and involve a great number of mammal taxa. [...]
La Crisis Vallesiense fue inicialmente definida como un fenómeno local que implicó la desaparición de ciertos géneros de roedores y artiodáctilos coincidiendo con el límite entre Vallesiense inferior y superior (hace 9. [...]

(Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Almécija, Sergio (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Moyà Solà, Salvador (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
In the Iberian Peninsula, Miocene apes (Hominoidea) are generally rare and mostly restricted to the Vallès-Penedès Basin. Here we report a new hominoid maxillary fragment with M2 from this basin. It was surface-collected in March 2017 from the site of Can Pallars i Llobateres (CPL, Sant Quirze del Vallès), where fossil apes had not been previously recorded. [...]

(Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
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, 1.2 MB Conservatism and adaptability during squirrel radiation : what is mandible shape telling us? / Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Van Dam, Jan (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Both functional adaptation and phylogeny shape the morphology of taxa within clades. Herein we explore these two factors in an integrated way by analyzing shape and size variation in the mandible of extant squirrels using landmark-based geometric morphometrics in combination with a comparative phylogenetic analysis.

4 p, 150.7 KB The never−ending problem of Miocene beaver taxonomy / Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The finds of Miocene beavers are not rare at all. Neverthe− less, in most localities these rodents are only represented by a few dental elements, so that large collections are only occa− sionally available to researchers. [...]

283 p, 3.6 MB The Rodent assemblages from the late Aragonian and the Vallesian (middle to late Miocene) of the Vallès-Penedès basin (Catalonia, Spain) / Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac ; Agustí, Jordi, 1954- , dir. (Institut de Paleoecologia Humana (Tarragona, Catalunya))
La conca del Vallès-Penedès es una àrea clau per a l'estudi de les successions de mamífers del Miocè europeu, donat que el seu abundant registre cobreix gairebé la totalitat d'aquest període. Recentment, degut a les obres d'ampliació de l'Abocador de Can Mata (ACM), al terme municipal de Els Hostalets de Pierola (l'Anoia, Barcelona), el nombre de jaciments coneguts de micro- i macromamífers s'ha duplicat. [...]
The Vallès-Penedès Basin is a crucial area for the study of the mammal succession of the European Miocene, since its abundant record covers nearly the totality of this period. Recently, thanks to the extension works of a rubbish dump, the so-called «Abocador de Can Mata» (ACM) at Els Hostalets de Pierola (l'Anoia, Barcelona), the number of known micro- and macromammal sites has doubled.
