Systematic, stratigraphic, and paleoenvironmental contexts of first-appearing Hipparion in the Vienna Basin, Austria
ABSTRACT The tridactyl horse Hipparion (s.l.) has long attracted the attention of paleontologists and geologists alike for its potential use as a stratigraphic and paleoenvironmental index. A centralExpand

The Integrated Plant Record: An Essential Tool For Reconstructing Neogene Zonal Vegetation In Europe
Abstract A semi-quantitative evaluation method has been developed to map integrated fossil plant records (leaf, fruit, and pollen assemblages) in terms of zonal vegetation. It incorporates taxonomy,Expand

Vegetation dynamics in Europe during the Neogene
INTRODUCTION In Europe, the Neogene is characterized by paleogeographic reorganization due to the collision of the African with the Eurasian plate. Orogenic belts evolved in central and southernExpand

The flora of Mataschen - A unique plant assemblage from the Late Miocene of eastern Styria (Austria)
A late Miocene (early Pannonian) leaf assemblage from the clay pit Mataschen, eastern Styria, Austria, is analysed. Thirty-eight species were determined, most of them by cuticular analysis. AmongExpand

Miocene evolution of landscape and vegetation in the CentralParatethys.
The digital elevation model (DEM) helps to express Neogene landscapes and vegetation on palinspastic maps with reconstructed orography. To reconstruct ancient vegetation cover, basic zonal vegetationExpand

Biogeography of Mediterranean Hotspot Biodiversity: Re-Evaluating the 'Tertiary Relict' Hypothesis of Macaronesian Laurel Forests
The Macaronesian laurel forests (MLF) are dominated by trees with a laurophyll habit comparable to evergreen humid forests which were scattered across Europe and the Mediterranean in the PaleogeneExpand

The Rauenberg fossil Lagerstätte (Baden-Württemberg, Germany): A window into early Oligocene marine and coastal ecosystems of Central Europe
Abstract The Oligocene was a period of profound climatic and biotic changes, coinciding with a shift from a mostly ice-free warmhouse world at the Eocene-Oligocene boundary to a globally cooler, moreExpand
