Abstract

Many new very important Middle Pleistocene small mammal localities of Europe were discovered during the last decades. These new data permit to divide the Middle Pleistocene geological sequences of Eastern and Western Europe and carried out the correlation between them. However, there are some difficulties connected with the incongruity of mammal appearance in different parts of Europe. In this paper we would like to discuss all these problems using Middle Pleistocene small mammal data and to present the possible biostratigraphical scheme for the whole Europe.
