Early and Middle Pleistocene large carnivores of Europe
This dataset contains records of the presence of carnivore species weighing more than 10 kg in European sites. Sites dated to the Early and Middle Pleistocene have been included. The dataset provides also the geographic coordinates of the sites (in decimal degrees) and information on the stratigraphical position of the fossils. Only presence/absence data are included (not abundance data). The dataset coatins also basic information on the type of accumulation, when available, chronological data and biochoronological correlations. All occurrences have been assigned to one of the four time intervals: 1.07-1.6 Ma; 0.78-1.07 Ma; 0.5-0.78 and 0.2-0.5 Ma. The list of references is included in a separate sheet.
