He is researcher in Palaeontology at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences (Brussels, Belgian). He has a PhD in Vertebrate Paleontology from Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle (Paris, France). He is interested in the evolution, phylogeny, and biogeography of the earliest carnivorous mammals (Hyaenodonta, Carnivoramorpha, Mesonychidae). His research also focuses on the impacts of the climatic changes of the Paleogene on the emergence and evolution of these particular mammals.

She is a biostratigrapher (Foraminifera and Ostracoda), in the geological department at the National Office of Mines in Tunisia. She got her MSc [earth sciences] degrees in the Faculty of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences of Tunis. Her PhD Thesis focused on Post-Tortonian ostracoda in Eastern Tunisia. She is mainly working on Upper Cretaceous and Tertiary sediments. Her research focuses on Messinian, Pliocene and Quaternary with a special emphasis on, quantitative analysis, paleoenvironmental reconstruction and climatic interpretation, in Tunisia and in the Mediterranean Sea.

He is CNRS researcher in paleontology and head of the Paleontology Department at the "Institut des Sciences de l'Evolution de Montpellier". He has a PhD in Vertebrate Paleontology from the University of Montpellier. His research focuses on macroevolutionary, phylogenetic, historical biogeography and paleobiological aspects of the early Tertiary adaptive radiations of some mammal groups (especially Rodentia, Primates, Dermoptera and Chiroptera, and others in collaboration), with a special emphasis on the role of the geodynamic and paleoenvironment changes on their emergence, dispersals and evolution. His is primarily a field paleontologist working in Paleo- and Neotropics.

She works in the "Département Forme, Institut des Sciences de l'Evolution » of the University of Montpellier, as an emeritous professor of Paleontology. Her researches concern early adaptive radiations of mammals, mainly European Paleogene rodents (theridomorphs for the most) and in a lesser extent, lagomorphs, North African Paleogene rodents, Paleogene multituberculates and Dinosaur eggshells. She actively participates in field work in Morocco and in the South of France (Quercy, Corbières, Provence) (and in Tunisia until 2011).
