This study deals with faunal finds from the Swiss Paleolithic, especially from the Late Glacial. Faunal assemblages from archeological sites as well as off-site finds dated by scientific means are included. In the middle of the Oldest Dryas the large glacial species – mammoth, rhinoceros, cave bear, musk ox – become extinct. During the Early Bølling the last arctic species disappear, and are succeeded by animals like red deer and elk, preferring a moderate climate. From the middle of the Allerød, species typical of a denser forest (roe deer and wild boar) are very frequent.
