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 this group, one of the most diverse families among mammals.
Main research topics: systematics, biochronology and palaeobiogeography of Neogene-Quaternary Eurasian lagomorphs.
The outputs are published in SCI papers, books, abstracts, field trip guides and popular publications.
