Born in 1966 in Zacatecaz, in 1998, I got the Bachelors degree (Biology) in the Sciences Faculty at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). In 2005, I got my Doctoral degree in the Geological Institute (IGM), UNAM. During 2005-2007, I had a Posdoctoral position in the Biological Institute at Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Always I worked on Mexican fossil fishes under my advisor and friend Dr. Shelton P. Applegate. Since 2007, I´m in charge of the Tlayúa project as full-time Researcher at IGM, UNAM. The main interest of my work is focused on the taxonomical characterization of Mexican fossil vertebrates and the understood of phylogenetic and biogeographic patterns and process outlined on these fossils.

I am an archeologist graduated in the Escuela Nacional de Antropología e Historia (ENAH), in México; I got the Master and PhD desgrees working on the Mesoamerican Studies at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). My professional career is linked with three essential activities on the Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH): I have been on charge of several research projects and archaeological rescue, conservation programs, and protection and maintenance of archaeological sites. I have been involved on the performace of exposition on archeological museums and exhibitions as well as a researcher at INAH Center Chiapas and the National Museum of Anthropology. I was responsible for the excavation of the censers during 1997 and 1998 seasons in the Temple of the Cross in Palenque, Chiapas; responsible of the Palenque project about the Early Classic; Temple twentieth season in 2010. Now I am on charge of some projectes related with the Palenque archaeological collections. Since 2007 I love the fossils, when I began the archeological-paleontological research project in the area of Palenque, Chiapas, together Jesús Alvarado-Ortega from with the Instituto de Geología (UNAM).

She has graduated with a Masters degree and is a young promising Mexican paleontologist. She received her degrees from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). During the bachelors, Pily used different statistical tools to develop a comprehensive quantitative framework to assess the taxonomical diversity of Pleistocene horses in Mexico. During her Masters, she worked on the morphological diversity of the ellimmichthyiform fishes supported in multivariate analyses. Pily has been a main participant in the projects of her advisor (Jesús Alvarado-Ortega), in the prospection and collection of vertebrates in different localities in Mexico as well as in the application of new analyses to characterize the taxonomical diversity and of Mexican fossils and their evolutionary processes and ontogenetic development.

Kleyton Cantalice recently has obtained his Ph.D. in Biosciences at Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (UERJ). His field research is focused on taxonomy and systematic of fossil and extant acanthomorphs fishes to understand the origin and evolution of derived forms on salt and freshwater enviroments, principaly along America. His studies are based on anatomical comparisons, phylogenetic systematic, biogeography and biochronology. Currently, he also is engaged on project of assembly and maintenance of a neotropical fish skeletal collection preparing dry articulated and cleared and stained samples.

I am a biologist working on fossil fishes from Chiapas, Mexico. In 2011, I got my degree with a thesis on the fossils of Perciformes fish from Palenque, Chiapas. I was working on paleontological prospection and fossil recovery on different Cretaceous and Tertiary localities along the southern part of Mexico. I am planning to start my Master´s degree studies working on fossil fishes from Mexico.

I am a biologist working on fossil fishes from Chiapas, Mexico. In 2011, I got this degree by the Facultad de Ciencias at Universidad Nacinal Autónoma de México (UNAM). Today I am studying the Master´s degree in this same university under under the guidance of Jesús Alvarado-Ortega. My research interest is focused on the taxonomy and systematic of the Paleocene Clupeomorpha fishes from the Tenejapa Formation, near Palenque, Chiapas.

I am a biologist working on diferent groups of fossils from Mexico Mexico. In 2008, I got this degree by the Universidad de Ciencias y Artes de Chiapas (UNICACH), Mexico, and actually I´m studying the Master´s degree in this same institution. My research interest is focused on the taxonomy and systematic of fossil fish from Cretacoeus localities of Chiapas. I have been working in the Museo de Paleontología "Eliseo Palacios Aguilera", collecting, preparing, and studying diverse groups of fossils.
