Born in 1966 in the city of Zacatecas. 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 Postdoctoral 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 by these fossils.

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 systematics of fossil and extant acanthomorphs fishes to understand the origin and evolution of derived forms on salt and freshwater enviroments, principally along America. His studies are based on anatomical comparisons, phylogenetic systematic, biogeography and biochronology. Currently, he is a Postdoctoral student, working on a project about the phylogenetic and biogeographic implications of Paleocene acanthomorph fishes from Chiapas, Mexico.

In 2012, he graduated as a Biologist at the Facultad de Estudios Superiores Iztacala of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. His Bachelor’s degree Thesis provided the preliminary studies on the pliosaurids of the Sabinal formation (Upper Jurassic) of south of Mexico. Currently, he is enrolled in a Master’s studies of the Programa de Posgrado en Ciencias Biológicas of the UNAM, in which he is addressing the taxonomic identification of all the Late Jurassic reptiles from the Tlaxiaco Basin. He is an active member of the team formed to develop projects of exploration, collection, and study of the marine and freshwater fossil vertebrates from Mexico, which are currently in process and led by Jesús Alvarado-Ortega.

I am a Doctoral student in the Posgrado en Ciencias Biológicas at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). I got my bachelor’s in biology at Universidad de Ciencias y Artes de Chiapas (UNICACH) and the Master´s degree in Evolutive Biology at Universidade Estadual do Centro Oeste do Paraná (UNICENTRO); Brasil. Currently, I am developing a project under the advice of Jesus Alvarado-Ortega in the Instituto de Geología UNAM. My research is focused on the diversity, phylogeny, and biogeography of the Mexican Aulopiforms fossils fishes.

I am a biologist working on different 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 systematics 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.
