The release of volume II of the proceedings completes the publication of the contributions to the 18th International SENCKENBERG Conference on ‘‘Late Neogene and Quaternary biodiversity and evolution’’, hosted in Weimar in 2004 and attended by leading international researchers. 117 authors discuss current problems of Quaternary research in the northern hemisphere and key regions in the southern hemisphere.
This volume includes contributions on the faunal history of Europe, including Italian, Bulgarian, Spanish, French, German, Danish, Croatian and Portuguese sites (and resulting correlations). Contributions from beyond Europe are devoted to the Pleistocene fauna and flora of Western Siberia, China, Indonesia, Mexico and South America. Papers on the late [Late?] Pleistocene/early Holocene fragmentation of mammoth habitats and the mode of extinction of Late Quaternary large mammals in Eurasia complete contributions that range over more than three million years: the result of a successful SENCKENBERG Conference.

The late Lower Pleistocene fossil site of Untermassfeld, near the town of Meiningen in Southern Thuringia, was discovered in 1978 and has been the subject of 25 field seasons. The digs have produced a stunning array of fossil vertebrate remains in stratigraphic context, making this unquestionably one of the most important Quaternary localities in Europe. In a new monograph, R.-D. Kahlke provides the first full synthesis of the work, bringing the results up to date, and placing them in a broad biostratigraphic context. With some 14,000 determinable vertebrate fossils, the Untermassfeld assemblage represents the most complete vertebrate record of the time span 1.2-0.9 Ma BP in the Western Palaearctic.

Untermassfeld – A late Early Pleistocene (Epivillafranchian) fossil site near Meiningen (Thuringia, Germany) and its position in the development of the European mammal fauna. (BAR International Series 1578)

The 18th International SENCKENBERG Conference (VI International Palaeontological Colloquium in Weimar) – ‘Late Neogene and Quaternary biodiversity and evolution: Regional developments and interregional correlations’ – was hosted by the SENCKENBERG Research Station of Quaternary Palaeontology, Weimar from April 25th to 30th 2004. This conference was dedicated to Hans-Dietrich Kahlke, one of the foremost personalities in interdisciplinary Quaternary palaeontological research in Eurasia. 165 participants from 28 countries presented the results of their research on the evolutionary history of European, Asian, African and American Late Neogene and Quaternary floras and faunas.
The first volume of the proceedings is devoted to the evolution, systematics and palaeoecology of mammal groups and regional correlative studies in the European region.

Late Neogene and Quaternary biodiversity and evolution: Regional developments and interregional correlations. Proceedings of the 18th International Senckenberg Conference (VI International Palaeontological Colloquium in Weimar) Volume I. (Courier Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg 256)

The authors Ralf-Dietrich Kahlke and Dick Mol, members of the international Cerpolex/Mammuthus polar expedition on the Siberian Tajmyr-Peninsula, describe recent discoveries of glacial animal and plant remains from a region far to the north of the Arctic Circle. The fossil remains, found in the course of two expeditions, each lasting several months, carried out under inhospitable climatic conditions, are described and discussed within the context of international Quaternary palaeontology. In addition, the authors report on the techniques for discovering new localities using helicopters and boats, and also the underground deep-frozen storage and analysis of the fossil material. In this book they combine a wealth of newly published information with reminiscences of personal experiences during the field campaigns and local colour of the Siberian Arctic. The volume is enhanced by numerous illustrations and the evocation of the unsurpassed natural beauty of the modern tundra landscapes.

During the 6th millennium BC in Central Europe the so called Neolithic Revolution took place. The first appearance of agriculture and stock farming in Central European is associated with the “Linear Ceramic Culture” named from the characteristic decoration of these ceramics. Although settlements of this culture have been excavated, contemporary burial sites are extraordinarily rare. In this monograph H.-D. Kahlke documents the cemeteries at Sondershausen and Bruchstedt (Thuringian), which he systematically excavated and investigated by himself. The detailed publication of these older Linear Ceramic Culture burial grounds fills a long-standing gap in knowledge and allows comparisons with cemeteries of the younger Linear Ceramic Culture in other areas of Germany, Slovakia, The Netherlands and France.

Sixteen contributions describe the geological and palaeontological evolution of Thuringia during the Tertiary and Quaternary – particularly the Neogene and Pleistocene development of the landscape, Palaeogene stratigraphy, the Tertiary between Leipzig and Altenburg, and the basalt deposits in the Thuringian Rhön mountains. Five related contributions describe the fossil remains (micro- and macroflora, molluscs, insects, small and large mammals) from more than 70 key Thuringian Pliocene and Quaternary fossil sites. Further contributions are dedicated to the Zersatzgrobschotter (Coarse Gravel) of the Lower Pleistocene, the Eemian travertines of Burgtonna, Weichselian sediments in the Ilm and Saale valley, gypsum solution during Late Pleistocene to historical times, and Quaternary mass displacements on the Wellenkalk escarpment.

All contributions of this richly illustrated volume include extensive bibliographies and English summaries. This volume is dedicated to the XVI. INQUA-Congress 2003 in Reno/Nevada.

The monograph outlines the evolutionary history of cold adapted large mammal faunas in Eurasia from Early Pliocene up to the end of the Pleistocene. On the background of the formation of Eurasian steppe tundras (mammoth steppes) a picture of the genesis of the Pleistocene Mammuthus-Coelodonta faunal complex covered 190 degrees of longitude and 40 degrees of latitude of the northern hemisphere is drawn. Based on extensive data among others from Europe, Siberia, and China the author presents maps of maximum distribution for the characteristic cold adepted faunal elements of the Old World Upper Pleistocene.

The monograph is written in English.

Bergung und Präparation pleistozäner Wirbeltierreste unter Berücksichtigung des Fossilmaterials der Komplexfundstelle Untermaßfeld/Südthüringen. (Restaurierung und Museumstechnik 12)

This monograph outlines the evolutionary and distributional history of cold- adapted large mammals in Eurasia from the Early Pliocene to the end of the Pleistocene. The volume focuses on the genesis of the so-called Mammuthus-Coelodonta faunal complex which developed in the northern hemisphere against the background of the expansion of steppe-tundra during glacial periods. Based on extensive palaeontological data from Europe, Siberia, China and other regions, the author presents numerous distribution maps of the characteristic, cold-adapted large mammals of the Old World Upper Pleistocene.

The monograph is written in German.
