Abstract

The limestone quarry of Beremend yielded the classical Late Pliocene and Early Pleistocene vertebrate faunas studied for more than a century. Th e Beremend 14 site was discovered in the 1970s by Dénes Jánossy. Twenty four small mammal species and twenty seven elements of herpetofauna were identifi ed from its rich vertebrate material. Based on the taxonomical study of small mammals, we suppose that the stratigraphic position of the site is the Early Pleistocene MN 17 Zone. Th e palaeoecological analysis of the fauna suggests warm, dry climate and open, probably wooded grassland vegetation surroundings of the site with smaller open water surface.
