This special publication includes ten contributions presented at the 2008 Molasse Group meeting at the State Museum of Natural History in Stuttgart, Germany. The contributions include various aspects of sedimentology, vertebrate and invertebrate palaeontology, micropalaeontology, stratigraphy, biogeography and palaeoclimatology of the Lower Freshwater Molasse (USM), Upper Marine Molasse (OMM) and Upper Freshwater Molasse (OSM). In this introduction: 1) a short resume of the activities of the Molasse Group is followed by 2) an introduction to the scientific contributions, and by 3) an outlook for future scientific research.
