A previous paper (Palombo et al., 2009) has tried to evaluate the progressive changes in the composition of carnivore guilds in north-western Mediterranean area as a direct response to climatic changes. As in other Mediterranean areas, Iberian Peninsula was influenced by the PlioPleistocene climatic oscillations that provoked migrations of taxa from East and Central Europe, as well as from Africa, across the Levantine corridor (Alberdi et al., 1997; Azanza et al., 1997, 2000, 2004; Palombo & Valli, 2005; Palombo, 2004, 2007a, 2007b). The present chapter summarizes an updated study on the relationships of biodiversity and HR size variation with climatic changes for the Spanish Plio-Pleistocene Carnivora.
