Pleistocene Vertebrate Faunas of Hungary by D. Janossy

By D. Janossy

The final 20 years have obvious a stunning renewal of curiosity within the examine of Pleistocene vertebrates. this can be very true in terms of positive stratigraphy in accordance with microvertebrates. Hungary's normal endowments in addition to the improvement of technology within the state, have made non-stop examine during this region attainable because the final century.The literature gathered over the last fifty years is so scattered and tough to retrieve that there was a good want for a finished treatise during this box. fresh many years have noticeable paintings in a chain of vital new localities, with new systematic-stratigraphic effects. This Hungarian paintings is phenomenal in Europe for its volume and completeness. it's transparent guide must be either finished and analytical. This quantity goals to be simply that, in as far as it describes all animal assemblages of the Hungarian Pleistocene deposits, with entire faunistic lists and with precise clarification of the stratigraphical preparations. the worth of this ebook is better via a chain of chronological tables for varied localities, numerous sketches, photographs of localities, in addition to indexes of localities and species.

(size of Vulpes) Cervus philisi group Sus strozzii group This fauna is the most important of all the animal communities of Osztramos, as far as the taxonomy of the rodents ofthe Lower Pleistocene is concerned.

The climatological significance of this find will be discussed in the concluding part of this work. The stratigraphical significance of this series of layers is further increased by the fact, as we will see later, that according to the small-mammal finds from the deep bores of the Great Hungarian Plain the wide-strata sediments are also representatives of the same stage. This is another good opportunity to compare the faunistical data of regional and karstic hollow sediments. Let us next turn our attention to Kretzoi’s locality no.

3, even though locality no. 5 in the roof, the overlying rock of Villhny, is the type locality of Villanyia. This proves that Osztramos no. 3 is somewhat younger than Villhny no. 3. Also, the two Lemmus M at Osztramos no. 3 were found in the upper, yellowish layer of the locality. This suggests a climatic basis for the “mutational explosion” of Mimomys. In view of the above, I have suggested that the fauna of locality no. 3 of Osztramos be designated the Tornan stratigraphical stage. Because of its similar age in the narrow sense, locality no.
