SMALL TERRESTRIAL MAMMALS (SORICOMORPHA, CHIROPTERA, RODENTIA) FROM THE EARLY HOLOCENE LAYERS OF MALA TRIGLAVCA (SW SLOVENIA)
Borut TOŠKAN - (38/1,2009)
At least 132 specimens belonging to no less than 21 species of small terrestrial mammals from the Boreal were identi- fied within the finds from the Early Holocene sediments from Mala Triglavca (the Kras Plateau, SW Slovenia), namely Crocidura suaveolens, Sorex alpinus / araneus, S. minutus, Talpa cf. europaea, Barbastella barbastellus, Sciurus vulgaris, Cricetulus migratorius, Arvicola terrestris, Microtus agrestis / arvalis, M. subterraneus / liectensteini, Chionomys nivalis, Myodes glareolus, Dinaromys bogdanovi, Glis glis, Muscardinus avellanarius and Apodemus flaavicollis / sylvaticus / agrarius / uralensis. This small mammal assemblage indicates that their habitat was presumably a mosaic of a mixed, predominantly deciduous forest, dotted with small meadows and some rocky substrate. A comparison of allochronous microfaunas from the Kras Plateau indicated a rapid faunistic change in the last 5,000 years.
