Fossil fruits including nuts and associated husk valves of a new species of Carya (Juglandaceae) are described from the latest Miocene to earliest Pliocene in northeastern Tennessee, eastern United States. The husk valves are elliptic, 1.2–4.5 mm thick, with a convex exterior face and a concave interior face; the nuts are globose to ovoid in shape, smooth and longitudinally ribbed on exterior surface, with a short protruding apex and a slightly 4‐angled base; inner ribs, lacunae and primary… 
New plant fossil records and paleoclimate analyses of the late Pliocene Citronelle Formation flora, U.S. Gulf Coast
The late Pliocene was an important time of relatively recent global warmth, and it heralded the end of Neogene Epoch. However, plant fossils from this time are uncommon in North America. This study
Preliminary investigation of a diverse megafossil floral assemblage from the middle Miocene of southern Mississippi, USA
Our understanding of Miocene floras in eastern North America is hampered by the rarity of megafossil sites. An early report from the middle Miocene Hattiesburg Formation in Mississippi included palms
Neogene Corylopsis seeds from eastern Tennessee
A new fossil species of Corylopsis (Hamamelidaceae), C. grisea Quirk & Hermsen sp. nov, based on seeds from the early Pliocene Gray Fossil Site (GFS), eastern Tennessee, USA, is described. The
First fossil record of Staphylea L. (Staphyleaceae) from North America, and its biogeographic implications
TLDR
According to the paleogeographic distribution of the genus, it is hypothesized that Staphylea originated from western Eurasia no later than the late Oligocene, and arrived in eastern North America most possibly through the North Atlantic land bridges like many other seed plants.
Review of the Fossil Record of Passiflora, with a Description of New Seeds from the Pliocene Gray Fossil Site, Tennessee, USA

TLDR
The presence of fossil passifloroid seeds in Europe shows that Passifloroideae once occurred in that region, although they are no longer found there today.
Plant and invertebrate macrofossils from the Pipe Creek Sinkhole (Late Neogene), Grant County, Indiana
ABSTRACT Examination of macrofossils from the late Neogene Pipe Creek Sinkhole in Indiana, USA, yielded 15 distinct plant taxa, one fungal taxon, and six invertebrate taxa. The plant assemblage was
Fungal remains from late Neogene deposits at the Gray Fossil Site, Tennessee, USA
TLDR
The presence of Cephalothecoidomyces, Trichothyrites, and other fungal remains previously reported from the Gray Fossil Site suggest warm and humid palaeoclimatic conditions in the southeast USA during the late Neogene, which is in accordance with data previously obtained from other palaeontological analyses at the Gray fossil Site.

Early history of the Juglandaceae
TLDR
Analyses of in situ pollen from early Tertiary juglandaceous inflorescences confirms the taxonomic value of certain patterns of exinous thinning and indicates that relatively unspecialized, isopolar triporate pollen of the type presently confined to the tribe Engelhardieae also occurred in other tribes of the family during the Paleocene.

Helodermatid Lizard from the Mio-Pliocene Oak-Hickory Forest of Tennessee, Eastern USA, and a Review of Monstersaurian Osteoderms
TLDR
Helodermatid osteoderms from the late Miocene-early Pliocene Gray Fossil Site, eastern Tennessee USA indicate an oak-hickory subtropical forest dominated by Quercus and Carya with some conifer species, an understorey including the climbing vines Sinomenium, Sargentodoxa, and Vitis and plant and mammal remains indicate a strong Asian influence.

NEW WORLD JUGLANDACEAE. II. HICKORY NUT OILS, PHENETIC SIMILARITIES, AND EVOLUTIONARY IMPLICATIONS IN THE GENUS CARYA
TLDR
Numerical analyses of the oil data reveal close similarities between certain members of the more "primitive" section Apocarya and the diploid members of section Carya, and Quantitative differences in the relative amounts of the five fatty acids support the morphologic recognition of two sections within the genus.

TLDR
The hypothesis that the NALB served as an important land bridge connecting the North American and European floras, as well as connecting American and African floras via Europe during the early Tertiary is supported.
