Abstract

Early late Pliocene rodent tooth remains, have been found in situ within Quercy paleokarstic fillings. They provide evidence of a sedimentary episode related to a high Pliocene marine level ca 3.5 Ma ago, that illustrates the situation predating the regional erosion phase and setting up of the hydrographic system.
