However, these turnovers are not fully understood due to: the precarious nature ofthe period’s fossil record; the ‘‘non-coexistence’’ in this record of many of the species involved; and the enormousgeographical area encompassed. This palaeontological information gap can now be in part bridged with data from theFonelas P-1 site (Granada, Spain), whose faunal composition and late Upper Pliocene date shed light on some of theproblems concerning the timing and geography of the dispersals.Methodology/Principal Findings: This rich fossil site yielded 32 species of mammals, among which autochthonous speciesof the European Upper Villafranchian coexist with canids (Canis), ovibovines (Praeovibos) and giraffids (Mitilanotherium)from Asia.
