Endemic Evolution and Faunal Turnover of the European Paleocene Mammals

The project focuses on the early radiation of European mammals at the beginning of the Cenozoic era, and their evolution until the Paleocene-Eocene boundary. Study of mammals from new localities allows discerning adaptive radiation, endemic evolution and dispersal of mammals just after the dinosaur’s extinction.
