Pleistocene camelids from the Syrian Desert: The diversity in El Kowm


Martini, Pietro; Costeur, Loïc; Le Tensorer, Jean-Marie; Schmid, Peter (2015). Pleistocene camelids from the Syrian Desert: The diversity in El Kowm. L'Anthropologie, 119(5):687-693.

Abstract

The family Camelidae has been present in Eurasia since the latest Miocene, and several species are recognized, but their evolution is poorly known. The region of El Kowm, central Syria, includes several sites spanning the Early to Late Pleistocene and provides the only abundant fossil record of camelids in the Middle East. Our preliminary results show that several species are present over the sequence, revealing some surprising evolutionary trends.
