Henryk Kubiak

Abstract


Remains of Suidae, Conohyus simorrensis (Lartet) and of Tayassuidae, Taucanamo sansaniense (Lartet), from the Middle Miocene karst localities at Przeworno in Lower Silesia are described. The ecologic requirements of these species are discussed, and environmental conditions of this locality are postulated as presenting different habitats of swampy forest and of a nearby steppe.
