The aim for the four years of my PhD is to come to a full evolutionary-biogeographical analysis, together with a reconstruction of the ecosystems on the Iberian Peninsula. This will enable us to see how climatic changes at the Middle to Late Miocene boundary affected the rise and fall of the Vallès-Penedès biodiversity hotspot. The first step is to reconstruct the biogeographical history of each of over one hundred mammal species that lived in the basin. To analyze the spatial distribution and temporal variations therein, the NOW database will be used, complemented with new data and literature. Grouping these data according to different criteria (area of origin, phylogeny, palaeoecology, guild membership) will provide a close insight into how a mammal community is assembled and eventually disassembled.
