About this book

Language: Spanish

This book is a systematic review of the main deposits containing fossils of ungulates from the Upper Pleistocene found in the region of Castilla y León (northern Spain). The remains were analysed both morphologically and metrically. The taxonomic classification is based on the models that are currently used in vertebrate zoology and paleontology. Taking this classification as a base, different methodologies were applied to determine the age of death and sexual dimorphism of the different ungulate species. The results provide new data from a period that witnessed the replacement of one human population, Homo neanderthalensis, with another, Homo sapiens, and show whether they discriminated between species, age and sex, and if they occupied the territory and the caves with the same intensity and in the same periods of the year.

Summary in Spanish:
Este trabajo pretende ser una revisión sistemática de los principales yacimientos, con fósiles de ungulados, del Pleistoceno Superior de Castilla y León (España). Los restos se han analizado desde un punto de vista morfológico y métrico. La clasificación taxonómica se basa en los modelos utilizados actualmente en zoología y paleontología de vertebrados. Tomando esta clasificación como base, también se han aplicado diferentes metodologías para determinar la edad de muerte y del dimorfismo sexual.Los resultados obtenidos han permitido aportar datos sobre un periodo que es testigo del reemplazamiento entre dos poblaciones humanas: Homo neanderthalensis y Homo sapiens, conocer si discriminaban entre especies, edad y géneros; y si ocupaban el territorio y las cavidades con la misma intensidad y en el mismo periodo del año.
