Abstract

I present a new method which can specifically detect taphonomic bias that affects the community structure of mammalian fossil assemblages. As an illustration, I apply the method to the Paleogene Faunal Zones of the Fayum in Egypt and demonstrate significant taphonomic biases which were not recognized in previous analyses of these assemblages.
