Abstract

The community structure of five mammalian assemblages from the Lower and Middle Pleistocene Gran Dolina (TD) Site (Sierra de Atapuerca, Spain) is analysed, including the 'Aurora stratum', where several stone tools and Home antecessor remains were found. A data set of 93 recent mammalian faunas is used for comparison. The five assemblages studied (TDW4, TDW4b, TD6inf, TD6Au and TD8) share some characteristics that set them apart from all the recent communities analysed, namely a high proportion of large herbivores combined with the absence of arboreal and climbing mammals, and a low number of small carnivores. The abundance of large herbivores is considered an uniquefeature of the Pleistocene communities, while scarcity of small carnivoresand absence of arboreal mammals are considered accumulation biases. The community structure of TD6inf, TD6Au, and TD8 resembles that of the recent European forest communities, however TDW4 and TDW4b have a somewhat differentstructure, more similar to that of communities from arid environments, although it is probably a consequence of some accumulation biases.
