  The glacial cycles of the past two million years have traditionally been considered to have had profound effects on the genetic patterns of most extant species [1–3].However, this paradigm has been long and hotly debated [4–6].Some studies contend that the late Pleistocene was an important time for avian evolution, involving phylogeographic separations and the Cited by:   Distinguishing species of geoemydid and trionychid turtles from shell fragments: Evidence from the Pleistocene at Niah Caves, Sarawak Author(s) Pritchard, P.

Canidae / ˈ k æ n ɪ d iː / (from Latin, canis, "dog") is a biological family of dog-like carnivorans.A member of this family is called a canid. There are three subfamilies found within the canid family, which are the extinct Borophaginae and Hesperocyoninae, and the extant Caninae.

The Caninae are known as canines, which includes domestic dogs, wolves, foxes and other extant and Class: Mammalia. The timing of the colonization of Sardinia by mammalian fauna and anatomically modern humans (AMH) is currently under debate.

The understanding of the geological and palaeoclimatological conditions that characterized the Late Pleistocene and the Holocene is essential to investigate colonization processes and requires an integrated multidisciplinary by: Rethymnon itself is a beautiful historical town on Crete in an area containing many Pleistocene fossil mammal localities which have yielded endemic deer, elephants and murids.
