Rapid Asia-Europe-North America geographic dispersal of earliest Eocene primate Teilhardina during the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum.
Analysis of morphological characteristics of all four species supports an Asian origin and a westward Asia- to-Europe-to-North America dispersal for Teilhardina and high-resolution isotope stratigraphy indicates that this dispersal happened in an interval of approximately 25,000 yr.
Paleocene-Eocene carbon isotope excursion in organic carbon and pedogenic carbonate: Direct comparison in a continental stratigraphic section
The negative carbon isotope excursion at the Paleocene-Eocene boundary is a chemo stratigraphic marker widely used for correlation of marine and continental stratigraphic sections. It is linked to
A Complete Skull of Allodaposuchus precedens Nopcsa, 1928 (Eusuchia) and a Reassessment of the Morphology of the Taxon Based on the Romanian Remains
Parsimony analysis confirms earlier phylogenetic hypotheses based on the fragmentary holotype from the Maastrichtian of Valioara in Haţeg Basin (Romania), as well as on putative conspecific remains from approximately coeval localities in Spain and France: A. precedens is a non-crocodylian eusuchian.
Sino-Belgian Cooperation Program Cretaceous dinosaurs and mammals from inner Mongolia. 1. New Bactrosaurus (Dinosauria: Hadrosauroidea) material from Iren Dabasu (inner Mongolia, P. R. China)
In 1995, the Sino-Belgian dinosaur expedition discovered a rich bonebed in the Iren Dabasu Formation (Late Cretaceous) of Erenhot (Inner Mongolia, P.R. China). This bonebed comprised the scattered
Early Eocene primates from Gujarat, India.
High bat (Chiroptera) diversity in the Early Eocene of India
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.
Evolutionary History of Bats: Systematics and paleobiogeography of early bats
The term “early bats” is restricted to the species known from the Early and early-middle Middle Eocene (Ypresian and Lutetian, and global equivalents, encompassing European mammalian reference levels MP7 through MP13).
A Diverse Snake Fauna from the Early Eocene of Vastan Lignite Mine, Gujarat, India
The number of taxa that represent the Colubroidea or at least the Caenophidia, i.e., advanced snakes, is astonishing for the Eocene, consistent with the view that Asia played an important part in the early history of these taxa.
Early Eocene fossils suggest that the mammalian order Perissodactyla originated in India.
New dental, cranial and postcranial fossils of Cambaytherium, from the Cambay Shale Formation, Gujarat, India are reported, demonstrating that cambaytheres occupy a pivotal position as the sister taxon of Perissodactyla.
