Bienvenido Martínez-Navarro is a paleontologist working on Plio-Pleistocene large mammals from Europe, Asia and Africa. His main interest is to describe the ecological scenario where our ancestors, the earlier members of the genus Homo, evolving and dispersing from Africa, were able to colonize the middle latitudes of Eurasia and survive in seasonal climates during the Pleistocene times. His intense research travelling around the world is focused into the study of African mammals dispersing into Eurasia, and Eurasian mammals dispersing into Africa, in order to describe their systematics, phylogeny, biochronology, paleobiogeography, autoecology. He works on large carnivores (fossil hyenas, sabertoothed tigers, hunting dogs, bears), ungulates (elephants, hippos, pigs, buffalos, antelopes, deer, giraffes), but also on monkeys and other groups.
