This chapter presents a systematic paleontology of Bovidae. Bovids are among the most highly diversified mammalian groups, with 137 extant species in 45 genera. Bovids are represented in the late Miocene deposits of the Middle Awash by at least 17 species in 14 genera and seven tribes (Boselaphini, Tragelaphini, Reduncini, Bovini, Aepycerotini, Antilopini, and Neotragini), six of which also exist in sub-Saharan Africa today.

Keywords:   paleontology, Bovidae, Bovids, Boselaphini, Tragelaphini, Reduncini, Bovini, Aepycerotini, Antilopini, Neotragini
