    The Anura (Frogs and Toads) are represented in Africa and associated regions by fossils of every epoch from the Cretaceous to the Holocene. Pipid frogs of African affinity are known from the Early Cretaceous of Israel ...
  • Thackeray, J. F.; Helbig, J.; Moss, S. (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    In this study we attempt to establish a baseline for measuring species variability in the palaeontological record by using linear regression analysis on sets of measurements from extant mammalian species (males and females ...
  • Smith, Roger M. H.; Susan, E. Evans (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    An assemblage of five fully-articulated juvenile skeletons of Youngina has been recovered from the Late Permian strata of the south-western Karoo Basin. These 12-cm-long skeletons are not only the first articulated ...
  • Senut, Brigitte; Pickford, Martin (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    One kind of aepyornithoid and six kinds of struthious eggshells have been found in Cenozoic deposits of Namibia. Field evidence indicates that the six struthious egg types are time successive, and they thus form a useful ...

    Karoo strata crop out extensively in Namibia. Numerous and diverse fossils have been collected from three areas - Karasberg, Kalahari and Huab Karoo basins. Although a great deal of research has been done on these strata ...
  • McKee, Jeffrey K. (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    Mammalian fossil assemblages from Pliocene and Pleistocene sites of southern Africa have recently been seriated in order to establish a relative chronology (McKee et al. 1994). Although an order was inferred for 17 site ...
  • Latimer, E. M.; Gow, C. E.; Rubidge, B. S. (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    The cranial morphology and extensive dentition of the dicynodont therapsid Endothiodon are different from those of any other dicynodont and it clearly had a different feeding niche. Recently prepared material from ...
  • Kuykendall, K. L.; Toich, C. A.; McKee, J. K. (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    Systematic excavations at Buffalo Cave in the Makapan Valley were begun in October 1993. This paper presents our preliminary analysis of the faunal assemblage from this site, including new in situ fossils and the collections ...
  • Brink, J. S.; de Bruiyn, H.; Rademeyer, L. B.; van der Westhuizen, W. A. (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    We document the occurrence of the Florisian, or late Quaternary, form of the giant alcelaphine, Megalotragus priscus, from dongas on the Ongers River, near Britstown in the central Karoo. This is significant as it confirms ...
  • Bamford, Marion K.; Corbett, Ian B. (Bernard Price Institute for Palaeontological Research, 1995)
    Fossil wood was collected from a palaeo-beach sequence on the farms Sandkop, Oubeep and adjacent State land, on the Namaqualand (west) coast of South Africa. Of the 14 samples sectioned only 5 were well enough preserved ...

    New micromammalian material from Gladysvale Cave has recently been collected by L.R. Berger and A.W. Keyser. The sample contains representatives of 29 species, of which five are insectivores, seven are bats and the ...
