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. [...]

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. [...]

The extinct dryopithecine Hispanopithecus (Primates: Hominidae), from the Late Miocene of Europe, is the oldest fossil great ape displaying an orthograde body plan coupled with unambiguous suspensory adaptations. [...]

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.

The Late Miocene continental successions of the Baccinello-Cinigiano basin (Grosseto), one of the longest and most continuous vertebrate-bearing continental successions in the Neogene Italian record, yielded at least four superimposed vertebrate assemblages bracketed in the time span 8. [...]

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. [...]

38 p, 1.8 MB An updated biostratigraphy for the late Aragonian and Vallesian of the Vallès-Penedès Basin (Catalonia) / Casanovas i Vilar, Isaac (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Garcés Crespo, Miguel (Universitat de Barcelona.

The Vallès-Penedès Basin (Catalonia, Spain) is a classical area for the study of the Miocene land mammal faunas and comprises one of densest and most continuous records in Eurasia. Furthermore, it is the type area for the Vallesian European land mammal age. [...]

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.
