Abstract:

Representantes del grupo de las neornitas son las aves más antiguas que se han descubierto en la Península Ibérica, en el Cretácico inferior. Recientemente, se han hallado evidencias de una gastornítida, aves de gran tamaño y no-voladoras, en sedimentos del Cretácico superior. La información sobre las aves del pasado comienza a ser rica con las cuencas sedimentarias que se forman durante el Mioceno. Las primeras indicaciones de caídas sustanciales de la temperatura en el hemisferio norte que acusan las aves tienen lugar hace aproximadamente tres millones de años. Son también las primeras evidencias de migración anual. Ratites procedentes de África se encuentran entre los animales que se instalaron durante el Plioceno inferior en las primeras islas que más tarde conformarán el archipiélago canario.

The paper is in Spanish.

Enjoy,
