Cosmopolitanism among Gondwanan Late Cretaceous mammals
Consistent with geophysical evidence for the breaking up of Pangaea, it has been hypothesized that Cretaceous vertebrates on progressively isolated landmasses exhibit generally increasing levels ofExpand

Dinosaur Coprolites and the Early Evolution of Grasses and Grazers
Silicified plant tissues (phytoliths) preserved in Late Cretaceous coprolites from India show that at least five taxa from extant grass (Poaceae) subclades were present on the Indian subcontinentExpand

Early Eocene primates from Gujarat, India.
The oldest euprimates known from India come from the Early Eocene Cambay Formation at Vastan Mine in Gujarat. An Ypresian (early Cuisian) age of approximately 53Ma (based on foraminifera) indicatesExpand

A New Abelisaurid (Dinosauria, Theropoda) from the Lameta Formation (Cretaceous, Maastrichtian) of India
Many isolated dinosaur bones and teeth have been recovered from Cretaceous rocks in India, but associated remains are exceedingly rare. We report on the discovery of associated cranial andExpand

Biogeographic and evolutionary implications of a diverse paleobiota in amber from the early Eocene of India
For nearly 100 million years, the India subcontinent drifted from Gondwana until its collision with Asia some 50 Ma, during which time the landmass presumably evolved a highly endemic biota. RecentExpand

High bat (Chiroptera) diversity in the Early Eocene of India
The geographic origin of bats is still unknown, and fossils of earliest bats are rare and poorly diversified, with, maybe, the exception of Europe. The earliest bats are recorded from the EarlyExpand

Early Eocene fossils suggest that the mammalian order Perissodactyla originated in India.
Cambaytheres (Cambaytherium, Nakusia and Kalitherium) are recently discovered early Eocene placental mammals from the Indo-Pakistan region. They have been assigned to either Perissodactyla (the cladeExpand

The phylogenetic significance of the Middle Pleistocene Narmada hominin cranium from central India
A parsimony analysis of the Narmada cranium from central India and a number of other demes and species of Homo concludes that the Narmada hominin shares a closer relationship with the EuropeanExpand
