Abstract. A characteristic xeromorphic foliage occurring in the European Tertiary was originally identified as a Proteaceae according to gross morphology, and compared with Grevillea L. and Lomatia L. (Grevillea kymeana Unger, Lomatites aquensis Saporta). On the basis of venation patterns and phyllotaxy, these elements are now reinterpreted as extinct species of Berberis L. (Berberidaceae): Berberis andreanszkyi spec. nov. occurring in the Upper Oligocene (Eger – Wind brickyard), and the Middle… 

The early Miocene flora of Güvem (Central Anatolia, Turkey): a window into early Neogene vegetation and environments in the Eastern Mediterranean

Abstract The early Burdigalian (MN3) plant assemblage of the Güvem area (northwestern Central Anatolia) is preserved in lacustrine sediments of the Dereköy pyroclastics. Its age is well constrained

A rich macroflora has been collected from Karpatian (late early Miocene) layers of the Mecsek Mts during recent decades. The bulk of the fossil assemblage consists of leaves and also fruits of

Dispersed pollen and calyx remains of Diospyros (Ebenaceae) from the middle Miocene “Plant beds” of Søby, Denmark

A review of the fossil pollen record of Diospyros shows that the genus was present in South China, western North America and Europe during the Eocene and in East and South Africa and Central Asia during the Oligo-Miocene.

Leaf physiognomy and palaeoenvironmental estimates - an alternative technique based on an European calibration

Physiognomic characters of fossil angiosperm leaf assemblages are believed to represent suitable proxies for palaeoenvironment, and particularly for palaeoclimatic reconstruction. To analyse past


1 Abstract: Three fossil floras are investigated based on leaf-, seed- and fruit remains from the Oltenia region (west of Dacian Basin, Romania) correlated to the Upper Badenian-Middle Sarmatian

The Colchic region as refuge for relict tree lineages: cryptic speciation in field maples

It is concluded that the Colchic genotype of Acer campestre represents a survivor of the initial radiation within section Platanoidea, predating the formation of modern species.

Paleogene vegetation of Eurasia: framework for mammalian faunas

Four major categories of Paleogene vegetation are described and their general distribution in Eurasia is plotted on polar projections of paleogeographic maps. Methods and approaches for
