Abstract : The study of large mammal assemblages discovered in layers 55 - 1 of Combe Grenal showed a set of fluctuations in the environment which later made it possible to establish a reliable biochronology of the period between the beginning of MIS 5 and the end of MIS 3 in the southwest of France. Using an example from an emblematic site, this paper aims to show how, in spite of a certain current lack of interest (unfortunate and inequitable) for biochronology, fauna often remain the only element for dating periods for which the methods of physical dating are often not applicable or indistinct. Obviously, biostratigraphic studies imply that the question of palaeogeography be approached by means of the identification and the characterization of the biogeographical provinces.
