(Hospital Clínico Universitario de Valladolid. Laboratory of Biomedical Research in Sepsis)
Background: The interaction between influenza virus and the host response to infection clearly plays an important role in determining the outcome of infection. While much is known on the participation of inflammation on the pathogenesis of severe A (H1N1) pandemic 09-influenza virus, its role in the course of non-fatal pneumonia has not been fully addressed.

34 p, 27.5 MB Remains of Leatherback turtles, Dermochelys coriacea, at Mid-Late Holocene archaeological sites in coastal Oman: clues of past worlds / Delfino, Massimo (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Frazier, John G.

Department of History and Cultures) ; Tosi, Maurizio (University of Bologna. Department of History and Cultures)
Small, irregular isolated bones identified as remains of leatherback turtles (Dermochelys coriacea) were recovered from Mid to Late Holocene sites at Ra's al-Hamra and Ra's al-Hadd, coastal Oman. These provide the third instance of this animal being documented from any prehistoric site anywhere, and the records provide one of the oldest, if not the oldest, dates for this distinctive chelonian—even though they do not refer to fossils.

13 p, 864.5 KB The avian fossil record in Insular Southeast Asia and its implications for avian biogeography and palaeoecology / Meijer, Hanneke J.M. (Institut Catala de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Excavations and studies of existing collections during the last decades have significantly increased the abundance as well as the diversity of the avian fossil record for Insular Southeast Asia. The avian fossil record covers the Eocene through the Holocene, with the majority of bird fossils Pleistocene in age. [...]

23 p, 30.3 MB Histological variability in the limb bones of the Asiatic wild ass and its significance for life history inferences / Nacarino Meneses, Carmen (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Jordana Comín, Xavier (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Köhler, Meike (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
The study of bone growth marks (BGMs) and other histological traits of bone tissue provides insights into the life history of present and past organisms. Important life history traits like longevity or age at maturity, which could be inferred from the analysis of these features, form the basis for estimations of demographic parameters that are essential in ecological and evolutionary studies of vertebrates.

21 p, 911.3 KB The intervals method : a new approach to analyse finite element outputs using multivariate statistics / Marcé Nogué, Jordi (Universität Hamburg. Centrum für Naturkunde) ; De Esteban-Trivigno, Soledad (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Püschel, Thomas A. (University of Manchester. School of Earth and Environmental Sciences) ; Fortuny Terricabras, Josep (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Background. In this paper, we propose a new method, named the intervals' method, to analyse data from finite element models in a comparative multivariate framework. As a case study, several armadillo mandibles are analysed, showing that the proposed method is useful to distinguish and characterise biomechanical differences related to diet/ecomorphology. [...]

35 p, 25.7 MB Agerinia marandati sp. nov., a new early Eocene primate from the Iberian Peninsula, sheds new light on the evolution of the genus Agerinia / Femenias-Gual, Joan (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Minwer-Barakat Requena, Raef (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Marigó Cortés, Judit (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Poyatos-Moré, Miquel (Universitetet i Oslo. Department of Geosciences) ; Moyà Solà, Salvador (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia)
Background. The Eocene was the warmest epoch of the Cenozoic and recorded the appearance of several orders of modern mammals, including the first occurrence of Euprimates. During the Eocene, Euprimates were mainly represented by two groups, adapiforms and omomyiforms, which reached great abundance and diversity in the Northern Hemisphere. [...]

27 p, 2.4 MB Ecomorphological characterization of murines and non-arvicoline cricetids (Rodentia) from south-western Europe since the latest Middle Miocene to the Mio-Pliocene boundary (MN 7/8–MN13) / Gómez Cano, Ana R. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Kimura, Yuri (National Museum of Nature and Science (Tokyo). Department of Geology and Paleontology) ; Blanco, Fernando (Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Departamento de Paleontología) ; Menéndez, Iris (Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Departamento de Paleontología) ; Álvarez-Sierra, María A. (Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Departamento de Paleontología) ; Hernández Fernández, Manuel (Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Departamento de Paleontología)
Rodents are the most speciose group of mammals and display a great ecological diversity. Despite the greater amount of ecomorphological information compiled for extant rodent species, studies usually lack of morphological data on dentition, which has led to difficulty in directly utilizing existing ecomorphological data of extant rodents for paleoecological reconstruction because teeth are the most common or often the only micromammal fossils.

(Yachay Tech) ; Abella, Juan (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Gregori, Maria D. (Universidad Estatal de la Peninsula de Santa Elena (Equador))
New Pleistocene fossilized turtle remains from five localities of western Ecuador (Santa Elena Province) are described here. All these shell (carapace and plastron) fossil remains come from the Tablazo Formation and belong to three different lineages of cryptodires ("hidden-necked" turtles). [...]

(Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; García-Marçà, Jordi Alexis (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Sellés, Albert G. (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont)
Background. The Late Cretaceous is a keystone period to understand the origin and early radiation of Crocodylia, the group containing all extant lineages of crocodilians. Among the taxa described from the latest Cretaceous of Europe, the genus Allodaposuchus is one of the most common but also one of the most controversial. [...]
