Zeolite Facies and Environmental Change in the Plio-Pleistocene Baringo Basin, Kenya Rift
Sediments exposed in the Tugen Hills in the Central Rift of Kenya include an important hominin-bearing succession of volcaniclastic and fluvio-lacustrine deposits. The Hominin Sites and Paleolakes
Chronostratigraphy of the Baringo-Tugen-Barsemoi (HSPDP-BTB13-1A) core – 40Ar/39Ar dating, magnetostratigraphy, tephrostratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy and Bayesian age modeling
The Baringo-Tugen-Barsemoi 2013 drillcore (BTB13), acquired as part of the Hominin Sites and Paleolakes Drilling Project, recovered 228m of fluviolacustrine sedimentary rocks and tuffs spanning a
Orbital Influence on Precipitation, Fire, and Grass Community Composition From 1.87 to 1.38 Ma in the Turkana Basin, Kenya
The Turkana Basin in northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia has yielded hundreds of hominin fossils and is among the most important localities in the world for studying human origins. High resolution
Vegetation change in the Baringo Basin, East Africa across the onset of Northern Hemisphere glaciation 3.3–2.6 Ma
Abstract Vegetation in East Africa is generally thought to have shifted from forests to more open grasslands and savannas as global climate cooled and high-latitude ice sheets expanded during the
Advanced Hyperspectral Analysis of Sediment Core Samples from the Chew Bahir Basin, Ethiopian Rift, in the Spectral Range from 0.25 to 17 µm: Support for Climate Proxy Interpretation
Establishing robust environmental proxies at newly investigated terrestrial sedimentary archives is a challenge, because straightforward climate reconstructions can be hampered by the complex
Diatom paleolimnology of late Pliocene Baringo Basin (Kenya) paleolakes
Abstract Kenya's Baringo-Tugen Hills-Barsemoi drill site is one of six localities across Kenya and Ethiopia from which the Hominin Sites and Paleolakes Drilling Project has obtained sediment cores in

13,16-Dimethyl Octacosanedioic Acid (iso-Diabolic Acid), a Common Membrane-Spanning Lipid of Acidobacteria Subdivisions 1 and 3
TLDR
Upon both acid and base hydrolyses of total cell material, the uncommon membrane-spanning lipid 13,16-dimethyl octacosanedioic acid (iso-diabolic acid) was released in substantial amounts (22 to 43% of the total fatty acids) from all of the acidobacteria studied.
African climate change and faunal evolution during the Pliocene-Pleistocene
Abstract Environmental theories of African faunal evolution state that important evolutionary changes during the Pliocene–Pleistocene interval (the last ca. 5.3 million years) were mediated by
Regional climate shifts caused by gradual global cooling in the Pliocene epoch
TLDR
Climate records from high latitudes, subtropical regions and the tropics are compared, indicating that the onset of large glacial/interglacial cycles did not coincide with a specific climate reorganization event at lower latitudes and suggesting that mean low-latitude climate conditions can significantly influence global climate feedbacks.
Plio-Pleistocene African Climate
TLDR
Major steps in the evolution of African hominids and other vertebrates are coincident with shifts to more arid, open conditions near 2.8 Ma, suggesting that some Pliocene (Plio)-Pleistocene speciation events may have been climatically mediated.
