The role this gastropod played in Prehistoric Europe is also examined. Acanthais triangularis was the most representative species of the study area, and Macrocypraea cervinetta showed the greatest size.

However, “eyes” in gastropods range from simple ocelli that only distinguish light and dark, to more complex pit eyes, and even to lens eyes. The Early Upper Palaeolthic in Greece: Cahiers d’Archeologie Romande It includes paired ganglia: In one large group of sea slugs, gastropova gills are arranged as a rosette of feathery plumes on their backs, which gives rise to their other name, nudibranchs.

In this way, examples of typically Mediterranean species have been classified at sites in Central Europe e.

Annual Review of Ecology and Systematics, Partial sequence of the mitochondrial genome of Littorina saxatilis: This paper presents a detailed analysis of the presence of perforated C. So far, all the gawtropoda recorded have been associated with habitat con- texts. The fossil history of this class goes back to the Late Cambrian.


Cazadores-recolectores en elPirineo Navarro. These contain an outpocketing of digestive gland called the diverticula. Prae- historische Zeitschrift 76 1: The subclass Prosobranchia was composed of 28 families, 61 genera and species and subclass Pulmonata by 1 family, 2 genera and 4 species Table 2 Figs. Those gastropods without a shell, and those with only a very reduced or internal shell, are usually known as slugs; those with a shell into which they can partly but not completely withdraw are termed semi-slugs.

Australian Biological Resources Study, Canberra.


The values of diversity and eveness for molluscs, which have been reported by other studies conducted in sites located in the MPR 32 are high and similar to those found in the present study Flores-Garza et al.

Journal of Archaeologi- cal Science The classifications used in taxonomy attempt to represent the precise interrelatedness of the various taxa. El ecosistema marino mediter- rdneo. Les excavations a la Balma de la Margineda Their fossils occur in ancient beds deposited in both freshwater and marine environments.

Mangado et al, or Chaves Glycymeris sp. Torre d’Aquila, in Corsica and in North Africa El Mekta leads us to suppose that at this time contacts existed between the two continents, possibly by means of small boats crossing the sea.

In France, the species appears at sites located over km from the Mediterranean coast. As such, it’s not until the Ordovician that the first crown-group members arise.


Late Pleistocene and early Holocene Finds from Okiizini: Together these 12 families accounted for In the Mesolithic, this gastropod has been classified at a large number of archaeological sites located in the central and western part of gastroppda Mediterranean region.

In subclass Prosobranchia, the Columbellidae family was the best represented in species richness 10 genera and 19 speciesfollowed by families Muricidae 10 genera and 13 speciesFissurellidae 3 genera and 13 speciesGastropdoa 3 genera and 9 species and Lottiidae 2 genera and 6 species.

This research found similar results, and also reports L.

Trabajos de Arqueologia de Navarra 8. As of [update]families of gastropods are known, of which are extinct and appear only in the fossil record, while are currently extant with or without a fossil record. Based on known species richness, we examine the composition of the community based on the representation of families, assess abundance, the geographic distribution of species, estimate descriptive statistics of size, and estimate diversity.
