Dinosaur Coprolites and the Early Evolution of Grasses and Grazers
TLDR
Phytoliths extracted from the coprolites suggest that the suspected dung producers (titanosaur sauropods) fed indiscriminately on a wide range of plants, and make plausible the hypothesis that gondwanatherian mammals with hypsodont cheek teeth were grazers.
Cosmopolitanism among Gondwanan Late Cretaceous mammals
TLDR
The occurrence of a highly specialized and distinctive group of extinct mammals, the Sudamericidae (Gondwanatheria), in the Late Cretaceous of Madagascar and India is reported, which is the first evidence of gondwanatheres outside South America and the first indication of cosmopolitanism among Late CRETaceous Gondwanan mammals.
Late Cretaceous origin of the rice tribe provides evidence for early diversification in Poaceae.
TLDR
The new Oryzeae fossils suggest substantial diversification within Ehrhartoideae by the Late Cretaceous, pushing back the time of origin of Poaceae as a whole.
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 and

GEOLOGIC INVESTIGATION of the Late Cretaceous Judith River Formation in the area just north of the Judith River on the Missouri River in north-central Montana has resulted in the discovery of varied
Early Eocene primates from Gujarat, India.
Biogeographic and evolutionary implications of a diverse paleobiota in amber from the early Eocene of India
TLDR
Cambay amber preserves a uniquely diverse and early biota of a modern-type of broad-leaf tropical forest, revealing 50 Ma of stasis and change in biological communities of the dipterocarp primary forests that dominate southeastern Asia today.
High bat (Chiroptera) diversity in the Early Eocene of India
TLDR
The discovery of the oldest bat fauna of Asia dating from the Early Eocene of the Cambay Formation at Vastan Lignite Mine in Western India is reported, and presents strong affinities with the European faunas from the French Paris Basin and the German Messel locality.
Remingtonocetus harudiensis, new combination, a Middle Eocene archaeocete (Mammalia, Cetacea) from Western Kutch, India
ABSTRACT A new genus of archaeocete cetaceans, Remingtonocetus, is based on revision of previously described and recently collected well preserved skull material from the Middle Eocene (Lutetian)
