Structure and evolution of the Himalaya–Tibet orogenic belt
The 1981 French–Chinese expedition to Tibet focused on the Lhasa block, extending earlier coverage 400 km north of the Tsangpo suture. The Lhasa block stood between 10 and 15° N latitude over most of… Expand
Deccan flood basalts at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary?
Abstract Joint consideration of new paleomagnetic, paleontological and geochronological data from the Deccan continental flood basalts in India and critical discussion of earlier results lead us to… Expand
Isotopic biogeochemistry ( 13 C, 18 O) of mammalian enamel from African Pleistocene hominid sites
The carbon and oxygen isotope composition of carbonate in enamel hydroxylapatite can provide information on photosynthetic pathways of plants at the base of food webs, and on hydrological conditions.… Expand
High‐level phylogeny of early Tertiary rodents: dental evidence
A cladistic assessment of the dental evidence for early Tertiary rodent cladogenesis provides evidence of a fundamental dichotomy in early rodent history, including the pentalophodonty of molars, zygomasseteric complex and incisor enamel microstructure. Expand
Asian monsoons in a late Eocene greenhouse world
Late Eocene climate records reveal marked monsoon-like patterns in rainfall and wind south and north of the Tibetan–Himalayan orogen, indicated by low oxygen isotope values with strong seasonality in gastropod shells and mammal teeth from Myanmar and by aeolian dust deposition in northwest China. Expand
Paleontological view of the ages of the Deccan Traps, the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary, and the India-Asia collision
Volcanism in the Deccan Traps of India occurred over at most three magnetic chrons, centered on a main reversed chron. Paleontological data indicate that this reversed chron must coincide with 29R,… Expand
Nature of laminations and mineralization in rhinoceros enamel using histology and X-ray synchrotron microtomography: Potential implications for palaeoenvironmental isotopic studies
Abstract Incremental features of rhinoceros molar enamel were studied quantitatively on histological slices. The different kinds of incremental features of enamel were related to one another and… Expand
A new primate from the Middle Eocene of Myanmar and the Asian early origin of anthropoids.
A new genus and species of anthropoid primate, Bahinia pondaungensis gen. et sp. nov., is described from the Yashe Kyitchaung locality in the Late Middle Eocene Pondaung Formation (Myanmar). It is… Expand
A colubrid snake in the late Eocene of Thailand : the oldest known Colubridae (Reptilia, Serpentes)
Up to now, the oldest known colubrid snakes were fossils from the early Oligocene of Western Europe and from the Arabian Peninsula. An indeterminate colubrid has been recently recovered in the late… Expand
MAGNETOSTRATIGRAPHY AND PALEONTOLOGY OF AIT KANDOULA BASIN (HIGH ATLAS, MOROCCO) AND THE AFRICAN-EUROPEAN LATE MIOCENE TERRESTRIAL FAUNA EXCHANGES
Abstract A magnetostratigraphic study has been carried out on a middle Miocene to upper Pliocene lacustrine sedimentary deposit in the central part of the Ait Kandoula basin, which contains… Expand
