I depositi a vertebrati continentali del pleistocene della Calabria

Gabriella Mangano


The inventory of Pleistocene mammal-bearing deposits of Calabria is reported, on the basis of the data available in the literature. Most of the deposits are represented by open-air sites, while cave deposits, always containing human artifacts too, are very scarce; this is to be referred to the lithology of the region, having few outcrops of carbonatic rocks. In many cases, precise informations on the stratigraphy and the composition of the faunal assemblages are lacking. A revision of the faunal assemblages is needed, also to better define times and modalities of the dispersal of the taxa to Sicily.
