About this book

The island of Samos is home to a rich fauna of late Miocene fossiliferous mammals, which was discovered at the end of the 19th century. Since that time, a large amount of fossil material, now housed at various museums and institutions, was collected by numerous researchers. In 1993 a new concerted study of the Samos mammals was undertaken by a team of researchers from the University of Thessaloniki.

The papers contained in this volume present an overview of both the fossil inventory collected before 1993 and the new finds made since that time.
