Most orders and many families of modern mammals were established during the Palaeogene. Mammalian evolution during this period of time has been correlated with global climatic events, although the timing, mode and scale of such a climate–evolution link remain debatable,,. The Palaeogene global climate was step-punctuated by a warming across the Palaeocene/Eocene boundary about 55 Myr ago and a cool-off throughout the late Eocene and early Oligocene epochs,,. The most severe cooling was at 33.5… CONTINUE READING
