Scherler laureline

After having studied palaeomammalogy on tapirs, anthracotheres and suids from the Swiss Molasse Basin during my PhD thesis (University of Fribourg, Switzerland), I’m devoted here to the phylogeny of anthracotheres, and particularly of the genus Anthracotherium. With a start with European specimens, I will try to identify their relationship with Asian and North-American congeners, in order to better understand this diversified family. This study works closely in the undergrounds of Natural History Museums, and hopefully will lead to valorisation of some collections.
