Flora of North America North of Mexico, Magnoliophyta: Magnoliidae and Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic history of North American Vegetation. New Pollen, fruits, and leaves of Tetracentron (Trochodendraceae) from the Cainozoic of Iceland and western North America and their palaeobiogeographic implications. Grana, 47, 1– A summary of late Paleocene to early Eocene floras, and middle Eocene to late Eocene and Oligocene floras in North America is provided by Pigg & DeVore () and DeVore & Pigg (). A comparison of the palynomorphs and megafossils in the late Paleocene Almont flora of North Dakota is given in Zetter et al., (table 1). The.
When its remains were first unearthed, in , the American Zebra was identified as a new genus of prehistoric horse, further examination, though, paleontologists determined that this stocky, thick-necked grazer was one of the earliest species of Equus, the genus that comprises modern horses, zebras and donkeys, and was most closely related to the still extant Grevy's Zebra of. North America - North America - Transportation: Industry has been strengthened by the ease of movement in North America. Waterways, widely used by the Indians and early Europeans, are still important. In spite of the barriers of the Canadian Shield and the Appalachians, the routes up the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Hudson Strait, Chesapeake Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico permitted the swift.
Acer chaneyi is an extinct maple species in the family Sapindaceae described from a number of fossil leaves and species is known from Oligocene to Miocene sediments exposed in Alaska, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon and Washington in the U.S. It is one of several extinct species belonging to the living section Rubra..

[Washington] Carnegie institution of Washington, Leaves from the Early Oligocene to Miocene of western North America assigned to T. aspera (La Motte,Meyer and Manchester, ) show a similar high number of abmedial branches of the lateral primary veins and sometimes trilobed leaves, but differ from the Icelandic ones by their smaller number of primary veins, and the wider by: JACK A.

3. Fossil leaf samples The current report deals only with middle- latitude Tertiary leaf assemblages from western North America. Further, Paleocene floras are excluded, because at this time no certain middle or late Paleocene leaf assemblages are known from this area that are of known (or reasonably inferred) paleoaltitude and known by: Eighteen taxa recorded in the Pliocene of Frankfurt am Main are today absent from western Eurasia and eastern North America, and 25 taxa are absent from western North America.

Paleoecology. The last glacial period, commonly referred to as the 'Ice Age', spannedto 14, years ago and was the most recent glacial period within the current ice age which occurred during the final years of the Pleistocene epoch.
The Ice Age reached its peak during the last glacial maximum, when ice sheets commenced advancing f years BP and reached their maximum.
The phylogenetic and systematic position of all species of Acer section Acer from North America, East Asia, and western Eurasia are evaluated using various splits-based networks (distance networks.
The Cenozoic structures of the western United States are interpreted here as being products mostly of horizontal motion of the crust. The distribution of strike‐slip faulting, tensional fragmentation of the brittle upper crust or rupturing of the entire continental crust, and compression define a pattern of northwestward motion increasing irregularly southwestward toward coastal California.
The Late Cenozoic formations in the lower Columbia River drainage basin constitute one of the best records of the terrestrial history of Western North America.
The main events within the Cascade Mountains and westward to the Pacific Ocean, which culminated in the Cascadian Revolution, are. Wolfe JA, Tanai T.

Abstract. The early Oligocene Bridge Creek flora of the John Day Formation in Oregon, USA, is an example of the broad-leaved deciduous vegetation that became widespread in the Northern Hemisphere following the Eocene-Oligocene climatic cooling, and demonstrates the significant participation of Metasequoia Miki in newly-developing communities analogous to the modern Mixed Mesophytic.
Introduction. Engler noted a close relationship between Cenozoic plant assemblages of the Arctic region and the modern northern temperate woody on this he coined the term ‘Arcto-Tertiary Element’ for plant groups that today dominate in temperate forest regions of North America, Europe and East Asia.
Flora of North America (FNA) presents for the first time, in one published reference source, information on the names, taxonomic relationships, continent-wide distributions, and morphological characteristics of all plants native and naturalized found in North America north of Mexico.
The Flora will appear in 30 volumes and will be available in. Being the only place in the northern North Atlantic yielding late Cainozoic terrestrial sediments rich in plant fossils, Iceland provides a unique archive for vegetation and climate development in this region.
This book includes the complete plant fossil record from Iceland spanning the past 15 million years. Eleven sedimentary rock formations containing over plant taxa are described. By the middle Paleozoic, the east coast was an active margin, fringed by a new active subduction zone. Finally, during the early Cenozoic, eastern North America rifted from what we now call Eurasia, opening the gateway between the Altantic and Arctic oceans.
As a result of this transformation, large regions of western North America. Study Area and Selected Floras. To study the Cenozoic climate variation of Central Europe, three basin complexes were selected based on long sedimentary records and abundant paleobotanical data (Fig.

Mesozoic Era, second of Earth’s three major geologic eras of Phanerozoic time. Its name is derived from the Greek term for “middle life.” The Mesozoic Era began million years ago, following the conclusion of the Paleozoic Era, and ended 66 million years ago, at the dawn of the Cenozoic Era.(See the geologic time scale.)The major divisions of the Mesozoic Era are, from oldest to.
