13 p, 952.2 KB Dietary Specialization during the Evolution of Western Eurasian Hominoids and the Extinction of European Great Apes / De Miguel, Daniel (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Alba, David M. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Moyà Solà, Salvador (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Institució Catalana de Recerca i Estudis Avançats
Given the central adaptive role of diet, paleodietary inference is essential for understanding the relationship between evolutionary and paleoenvironmental change. Here we rely on dental microwear analysis to investigate the role of dietary specialization in the diversification and extinction of Miocene hominoids from Western Eurasian between 14 and 7 Ma. [...]

Departament de Resistència de Materials i Estructures a l’Enginyeria)
The potential of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) as an analytical technique in biological research has been widely highlighted in recent years. In spite of its great power, only in the best of circumstances one can compare the behaviour of models that differ in size and shape. [...]

11 p, 1.3 MB Disentangling adaptive evolutionary radiations and the role of diet in promoting diversification on islands / De Miguel, Daniel (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Although the initial formulation of modern concepts of adaptive radiation arose from consideration of the fossil data, rigorous attempts to identify this phenomenon in the fossil record are largely uncommon. [...]

Deer are an iconic group of large mammals that originated in the Early Miocene of Eurasia (ca. 19Ma). While there is some consensus on key relationships among their members, on the basis of molecular- or morphology-based analyses, or combined approaches, many questions remain, and the bony labyrinth has shown considerable potential for the phylogenetics of this and other groups.

Facultat de Ciències
1 This module provides a deep view in the evolution and diversity of continental biotas along the geological time. It is divided in four different topics (Paleobotany, Paleoherpetology, Paleomammalogy and Paleoprimatology and Human Evolution) combining the classical hypothesis with the most recent discoveries and updated theories in the evolutionary history of plants, dinosaurs and primates.

Facultat de Ciències
The aim of this module is to provide the students the knowledge necessary to carry out their own research, according to the leading techniques, methods and software in Palaeontology. Some other classic methods and techniques in taxonomy, sedimentology and taphonomy are further developed to provide the students advanced skills on them.
