Project: Study of the ancestors, origins and basal relations of Perissodactyla (odd-toed ungulate mammals) in the frame of the events around the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum

project duration
01-OCT-08 – 30-SEP-11
The general objective of this research project is the study of phylogenetic and paleobiogeographic origin of the perissodactyls (odd-toed ungulates), through the study of fossil remains of primitive perissodactyls and their possible allies, and the integration of their evolution in the frame of the climate change of the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum.
