We here describe lizards and snakes from the late Miocene (MN 10) of Ravin de la Pluie, near Thessaloniki, Greece, a locality widely known for its hominoid primate Ouranopithecus macedoniensis. The new finds comprise two large-sized lizards (a probable anguine and a varanid) and two snakes (an elapid and a small-sized “colubrine”). Even if the material is represented by few specimens,...

Nowadays, the ruminants are the most ecologically diverse hoofed mammals of the world. All the extent of families (including related species from the Burdigalian) and feeding habits can be deduced from the mandible shape. The Tragulidae possess a small coronoid process, a shortened diastema, and a weak incisura vasorum. The Eupecora have an elongated diastema (extremely extended within the...

Paléoécologie et taphonomie comparative en milieux carbonatés peu profonds (oxfordien du Jura suisse et holocène du Belize)

Sediment on tropical platforms stems from terrigeneous sources and from authigenic carbonate production, and the accumulation is also influenced by lateral migration of sedimentary bodies. The qualitative and quantitative evolution of the sediment flow is controlled by allocyclic and autocyclic processes. The studies of Pittet (1996), Plunkett (1997), Dupraz (1999), Hug (2003), and Védrine...
