A study published today in Scientific Reports by researchers at the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP) reveals that competition between species would have been the cause behind the pathological dinosaur eggs that have been recovered in several sites of southwestern Europe. Female titanosaurs would have retained eggs in…
An international team of researchers including Daniel DeMiguel, from the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP), have analyzed the three dimensional structure of the inner ear of several extant and extinct species of deer. The study, published in Scientific Reports, has shed light on the origin and evolution of…
Researchers from the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP) have taken part in the annual meeting of the European Association of Vertebrate Palaeontologists (EAVP), the most important vertebrate paleontology meeting in Europe, held in Munich from 1st to 3rd August. ICP personnel or collaborators presented up to 30 works…
An international team of paleontologists led by Novella Razzolini, researcher at the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP), describes the new 150-million-years-old type of carnivorous dinosaur footprint Megalosauripus transjuranicus. Scientists studied more than 300 tridactyl trackways in Switzerland before the site was partially destroyed by the construction of a…
The Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP) board has today approved the designation of David M. Alba, head of the Neogene and Quaternary Fauna research group, as the new director of the ICP. Alba replaces Salvador Moyà-Solà, founder and leader of the centre since 2006.
A team of researchers from the Department of Geology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) and the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP) recently published in PLOS ONE the description of a large set of tracks made by archosauromorphs, reptiles which later evolved into crocodiles and dinosaurs. Among…
The researchers Kelsey Pugh (City University of New York) and Miyuki Kagaya (Hiroshima University) are visiting the ICP this week to study several fossils from the Institute's collection. Pugh works on the systematics of the Miocene hominoids while Kagaya studies the functional morphology of the upper limbs of apes. Some…
The scientific journal on paleontology Comptes Rendus Palevol has published a thematic issue that includes several articles on Oligocene and Miocene faunas from different regions of Eurasia. Isaac Casanovas, researcher at the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP), is one of the guest editors of this special volume that…
The head of the research group on Neogene and Quaternary faunas at the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP), David M. Alba, is, since early this year, the new co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Human Evolution (JHE), the most prestigious scientific journal in the field of human evolution and…
