Abstract

The knowledge of the Neogene and Quaternary fossil record of the insectivores, the small mammals included in the order Eulipotyphla, has been greatly improved in the last two decades. This improvement, linked to a refinement on the dating of many Spanish fossil localities, allows tracking the evolution of the insectivore assemblages during the last 20 million years leading to the Recent communities. Given the sensitivity of these species to certain environmental conditions within the Iberian geographic context, the changes on the insectivore diversity at generic level can be confidently associated to some biological events and linked to the large-scale climatic trends in the Northern Hemisphere.
