Biodiversity Response to Climate Change in the Middle Pleistocene: The Porcupine Cave Fauna from Colorado

This publication chronicles the invention and research of animal fossils present in essentially the most vital paleontological websites within the world-Porcupine Cave, situated at an elevation of 9,500 ft within the Colorado Rocky Mountains. With tens of hundreds of thousands of pointed out specimens, this web site has develop into the major resource of data at the fauna of North America's greater elevations among nearly 1 million and 600,000 years in the past, a interval that observed the improvement and retreat of glaciers a variety of occasions.

Fossil Reptiles of Great Britain

British Fossil reptile websites are of foreign value on account that they contain is still that fill the time gaps poorly recognized in different places. They contain wealthy vintage reptile beds which were the resource of dozens of vital specimens. This quantity information all these websites that experience yielded fossil reptiles.

The Great American Biotic Interchange: A South American Perspective

South American ecosystems suffered one of many maximum biogeographical occasions, after the institution of the Panamian land bridge, known as the “Great American Biotic Interchange” (GABI). This refers back to the trade, in different stages, of land mammals among the Americas; this occasion began in the course of the overdue Miocene with the looks of the Holartic Procyonidae (Huayquerian Age) in South the USA and keeps at the present time.

CHAPTER 6 Impacts of Sea-Level Fluctuations on Biotic Turnover In an editorial, Chen et al. (2014) noted that climate extremes and associated environmental stresses may become a characteristic of our future. Earth’s ecosystems have suffered severe environmental stress and dramatic climate change throughout the geological history. How rapidly ecosystems can adjust to abrupt climate change and environmental extreme is a fundamental question accompanying present-day global warming. An important tool to address this question is to document and understand the equivalents strewn as mass extinction events in the geological record, in particular where the magnitude and/or rates of change in the global climate/environment system impacted the biodiversity.
