Rhinocerotidae from the early middle miocene locality Gračanica (Bugojno basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina)

Becker, Damien ; Tissier, Jérémy

In: Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, 2019, p. -

The early middle Miocene (European Land Mammal Zone MN5) locality Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina) has yielded numerous well-preserved dental remains of four Rhinocerotidae species: Brachypotherium brachypus, Lartetotherium sansaniense, Plesiaceratherium balkanicum sp. nov. and Hispanotherium cf. matritense. This rhinocerotid assemblage is typical of the Orleanian European Land ...

New data on Amynodontidae (Mammalia, Perissodactyla) from Eastern Europe: Phylogenetic and palaeobiogeographic implications around the Eocene-Oligocene transition

Tissier, Jérémy ; Becker, Damien ; Codrea, Vlad ; Costeur, Loïc ; Fărcaş, Cristina ; Solomon, Alexandru ; Venczel, Marton ; Maridet, Olivier

In: PLOS ONE, 2018, vol. 13, no. 4, p. e0193774

Amynodontidae is a family of Rhinocerotoidea (Mammalia, Perissodactyla) known from the late Early Eocene to the latest Oligocene, in North America and Eurasia. European Amynodontidae are very rare, and all remains belong almost exclusively to a single post—Grande Coupure genus from the Oligocene, Cadurcotherium. The “Grande Coupure” defines an extinctions and dispersal-generated...

New biostratigraphical data for the Burdigalian Montchaibeux Member at the locality Courrendlin-Solé (Canton of Jura, Switzerland)

Prieto, Jérôme ; Becker, Damien ; Rauber, Gaëtan ; Pirkenseer, Claudius M.

In: Swiss Journal of Geosciences, 2018, vol. 111, no. 1–2, p. 1–11

Geological surveys were carried out in the Miocene deposits at the place known as “En Solé” east of the village Courrendlin (Delémont Basin, Canton of Jura, Switzerland). This resulted in the discovery of new Miocene small mammal assemblages. The association of the rodents Megacricetodon aff. collongensis and Melissiodon sp. allows to biochronostratigraphically correlate for the first...

A new primate assemblage from La Verrerie de Roches (Middle Eocene, Switzerland)

Minwer-Barakat, Raef ; Marigó, Judit ; Becker, Damien ; Costeur, Lo?c

In: Journal of Human Evolution, 2017, vol. 113, no. Supplement C, p. 137–154

Primates reached a great abundance and diversity during the Eocene, favored by warm temperatures and by the development of dense forests throughout the Northern Hemisphere. Here we describe new primate material from La Verrerie de Roches, a Middle Eocene karstic infill situated in the Jura Region (Switzerland), consisting of more than 80 dental remains. The primate assemblage from La Verrerie...
