Biostratigraphy of amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals in Cosica and the role of man in the Holocene faunal turnover

Abstract : This paper presents the results of a study of seven late Pleistocene and Holocene faunal assemblages from Corsica. They greatly improve the number of chronostratigraphic data-sets available for amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals from this island. Compared with those from several other recent excavations, they corroborate an earlier interpretation: the colonization of the island by man had little impact on the herpetofauna (a few introductions and no extinctions), a slightly more important impact on birds (mainly favouring some species) and a very strong one on mammals (complete turnover of the fauna).
