Settepolesini di Bondeno (Ferrara - Eastern Po Valley) the first example of mammoth steppe in Italy.



A ste of the eastern Po valley (Settepolesini di Bondeno, Ferrara), containing very abundant fauna from the Middle Wurmian, Late Glacial and Holocene (Roman Age) is reported. The oldest faunal association portrays, for the first time in Italy, a mammoth steppe with Mammuthus primigenius, Coelodonta antiquitatis, Megaloceros giganteus, Bison priscus, alces alces, etc. The Late Glacial association provides evidence of a steppe dominated by bison. Radiometric datings are presented
