Summary:
The main subject of this thesis was to record and describe the material of Cricetodon aliveriensis from the Greek locality of Karydia and to compare it with Aliveri’s. The work above led to the identification of the species C. aliveriensis and Cricetodon sp. from Karydia. This thesis includes the first description of C. aliveriensis from the locality of Karydia. A variety of statistical methods has been used to verify its presence in this locality.
This thesis will help any future comparison with other species from Karydia or other localities so that the Early Miocene of Greece, especially in the study of micromammals, be described in more details. Karydia’s Cricetodon aliveriensis will increase the paleontologists’ database and will help to clear out the paleontological gap between Greece and Europe with Anatolia during the Early Miocene and to comprehend the migration events that took place between these geographical areas. The micromammal research of the Early Miocene of Greece will be continued with the search of more fossiliferous localities and their correlation with other Anatolian and European localities.
