Table 1. Bajondillo invertebrate assemblages: Mousterian. NR and MNI per level (NR: number of remains, MNI: minimum number of individuals). Table 2. Bajondillo mollusc assemblages from Aurignacian levels (Bj/13-Bj/11). NR and MNI per level (NR: number of remains, MNI: minimum number of individuals). Table 3. Selected parameters for the Bajondillo levels (Bj). (mm= marine molluscs) (NISP: number of individual specimens). Table 4. Mollusc assemblages from prehistoric sites from the Alboran Sea. Data taken from Fisher, 1928, Baden-Powell, 1964, Barton, 2000, Lozano-Francisco et al., 2003, 2004, Cortés-Sánchez et al., 2008, Ramos et al. 2012, Fa et al. 2016, Ramos et al., 2016). Table 5. Abundance, expressed in terms of NISP (Number of identified remains) and MNI (Minimum number of individuals), and their corresponding percentages over the assemblage’s total, of selected mollusk taxa from Middle and Early Upper Paleolithic assemblages from the Alborán Sea. (*mentions Lucinia, Cardium, Pecten, Spondylus and Sepia) (Gorham’s a-c are Waechter’s excavations, see Baden-Powell, 1964; d is taken from Fa et al., 2016, other data taken from Ramos et al., 2016, Fisher, P., 1928, Barton, N. 2000, Cortes et al., 2008, Jerardino and Marean, 2010).
