Abstract

The first papers dealing with the paleomammalian biogeography of the Spanish Neogene were produced by Crusafont (1954, 1958, etc.), who emphasized the endemic character of most of the Iberian faunas. This endemic character was thought to be caused by the effects of the Pyrenees Range, which probably acted as a biogeographic filter, isolating the Iberian Peninsula from the rest of Europe.
