Pole, M., December, 2008. The record of Araucariaceae macrofossils in New Zealand. Alcheringa 32, 405–426. ISSN 0311-5518. The Araucariaceae have a long record in New Zealand, extending back to the Jurassic at least, and Araucaria extends back to at least the Late Cretaceous. This paper reviews the macrofossil record of the family and presents new information based largely on the leaf cuticle record. Agathis, which is the only genus of the family currently growing in New Zealand, has no record… Expand
Araucariaceae macrofossil record from South America and Antarctica
Araucariaceae fossils are abundant in Patagonia and on Seymour (Marambio) and King George (25 de Mayo) islands, Antarctica. Araucariacean macrofossil suites are represented by records of 121 woods,Expand
First South American Agathis (Araucariaceae), Eocene of Patagonia.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Agathis is an iconic genus of large, ecologically important, and economically valuable conifers that range over lowland to upper montane rainforests from New Zealand to Sumatra.Expand
A new terrestrial Cretaceous-Paleogene site in New Zealand—turnover in macroflora confirmed by palynology
A fluvial sequence near Cave Stream (north of Castle Hill Village, central Canterbury), New Zealand, contains organically-preserved plant macrofossils (cuticles). The almost ubiquitous presence ofExpand
Was New Zealand a primary source for the New Caledonian flora?
This paper reports the discovery of three of the most iconic New Caledonian endemic genera, Amphorogyne, Paracryphia and Phelline, as dispersed leaf cuticle fossils in the early Miocene of NewExpand
First Evidence for Wollemi Pine-type Pollen (Dilwynites: Araucariaceae) in South America
TLDR
Fossils from the Ligorio Márquez Formation of Santa Cruz, Patagonia, Argentina are assigned to Dilwynites, the fossil pollen type that closely resembles the pollen of modern Wollemia and some species of its Australasian sister genus, Agathis. Expand
Araucarioid wood from the late Oligocene–early Miocene of Hainan Island: first fossil evidence for the genus Agathis in the Northern Hemisphere
TLDR
The wood of Agathis ledongensis provides evidence for the dispersal of this important plant group from Australia, or another Gondwanan terrane, to eastern Asia based on reliable fossil data. Expand
Did Kauri (Agathis: Araucariaceae) really survive the Oligocene drowning of New Zealand?
New Zealand (NZ) is both a Gondwanan continental fragment and a geologically active oceanic island, and hence, unravelling the origins and diversification of its biota has been considered importantExpand
Cretaceous plant fossils of Pitt Island, the Chatham group, New Zealand
Pitt Island, a part of the Chathams Islands group, lies 700 km east of New Zealand. Its geology includes the Tupuangi Formation, dated as Motuan to Teratan (late Albian to Santonian) on the basis ofExpand
Diversification of crown group Araucaria: the role of Araucaria famii sp. nov. in the mid-Cretaceous (Campanian) radiation of Araucariaceae in the Northern Hemisphere.
TLDR
This small cone with attached, imbricate leaves, wide bracts, and unusually large seeds, most closely resembles those of Araucaria Section Eutacta, providing important new insights into the structure and relationships of Cretaceous Northern Hemisphere Araucariaceae. Expand
Eocene Araucaria Sect. Eutacta from Patagonia and floristic turnover during the initial isolation of South America.
TLDR
The results confirm the presence and indicate the survival of Sect. Expand

Mesozoic Araucariaceae: Morphology and systematic relationships
TLDR
Evidence that fossil araucarian cones may have produced seeds with hypogeal germination is discussed in light of recent work on germination of extant bunya seedlings and the discovery of new fossil shoots from the Jurassic Morrison Formation of Utah. Expand
The Araucariaceae: An evolutionary perspective
TLDR
Well-preserved Bunya section cones from Europe, South America and India suggest that this section was widespread in both hemispheres during the Jurassic, and that the section Bunya be retained in current taxonomic schemes even though it contains only one extant species. Expand

TLDR
Organically preserved plant macrofossils, which accumulated during the period of late Neogene tectonic uplift, were documented from four localities in the South Island, suggesting temperate conditions. Expand

TLDR
Recent information on ecology and phylogeny and on pollen and macrofossil assemblages is examined to assess the history and present-day status of the Araucariaceae and its potential for refinement of past environmental, particularly climatic, conditions. Expand
Tertiary gymnosperms from Tasmania : Araucariaceae.
TLDR
Three new species of the Araucariaceae are described from leaf remains, Araucaria readiae from the Early Eocene Regatta Point flora, A. hastiensis from the Middle-Late Eocene Hasties flora, and Agathis tasmanica from the early Oligocene-Early Miocene Little Rapid River flora, indicating the presence of a high diversity of araucarian species in the region in the Early-Middle Tertiary.

Late cretaceous macrofloras of eastern Otago, New Zealand: Gymnosperms
TLDR
Six new coniferous fossils are described from the Late Cretaceous of eastern Otago, New Zealand, and a new species of Araucaria, A. falcata (the first record of this genus from New Zealand) is described. Expand
Mid-cretaceous conifers from the Eromanga Basin, Australia
TLDR
Mid-Cretaceous sediment in seven bore cores from the Eromanga Basin (south-western Queensland) was sampled for organically preserved plant macrofossils, and 26 taxa ofconifers have been distinguished. Expand

TLDR
These species confirm the presence of the subtropical/tropical Araucariaceae in Tasmania in the Eocene and the evolutionary position of the fossil species is uncertain at present. Expand
