On Paleobiogeography of Italian Tertiary Mammals / Elementi di Paleobiogeografia dei mammiferi terziari dell'Italia

By Tassos Kotsakis

Abstract

<strong>Abstract</strong> In this paper the Italian continental Tertiary mammalofaunas are examined. For each known layer the faunal composition, the age and the center of spreading of each component are pointed out. Besides some isolated remains collected in marine sediments, faunistic assemblages coming from three Eocene, six Oligocene, six Miocene, three Mio/Pliocene, six Lower Pliocene, more than ten Upper Pliocene and two Pleistocene sites interesting for mammalian Tertiary biogeography are analysed. <strong>Riassunto</strong> Vengono esaminate le faune a mammiferi continentali del Terziario italiano. Per ogni giacimento viene indicata la composizione della fauna, l'età e l'area di provenienza delle varie componenti. A prescindere dai resti isolati raccolti in sedimenti marini, vengono analizzate le faune di trentasei località (tre eoceniche, sei oligoceniche, sei mioceniche, tre mio/plioceniche, sei plioceniche inferiori, dieci plioceniche superiori e due pleistoceniche) che presentino interesse per la biogeografia del Terziario
