Abstract (in english)
   The effects of the global environmental changes of the Pliocene period upon mammalian evolution presents undoubtedly a hot topics of the Late Cenozoic vertebrate paleontology. Yet, the details of the extensive rearrangements in community and faunal structures appearing in that time and of the rearrangements observed in phenotypic trends of particular taxa are still not completely comprehended. Unfortunately, the record of the Pliocene mammals in Central Europe is rather fragmentary, e.g. in the Czech and Slovak Republics it was, until recently, limited onto just a few sites: Ivanovce - MN 15b, Hajnáčka - MN 16a, and Včeláre 2 - ?MN 16. During recent decades we succeeded to discover and investigate several new sites which supplement the Pliocene mammals record from Central Europe in essential way. The present contribution is focused on specificities of the aseemblages which illustrate the situation along the Late Ruscinian / Early Villanyian (MN 15b / MN 16a) boundary.
