"The great predatory birds of the Pleistocene of Cuba."in Collected Papers in Avian Paleontology Honoring the 90th Birthday of Alexander Wetmore, – In recent years, the view that Pleistocene climatic events played a major role in the evolution of the biotas of southern, primarily tropical continents has begun to displace the previously held conviction that these areas remained relatively stable during the Quaternary. Studies of speciation patterns of high Andean plant and avian taxa () have led to the conclusion that Pleistocene.

      South American continent. These birds are amongst the largest birds that have ever existed on the planet, ranging in height from approximately 1 to 3 meters (MARSHALL ; ALVARENGA & HÖFLING ). Phorusrhacid birds apparently shared with borhyaenid marsupials the predator niche of grassland eco - systems, and perhaps open areas in dry forest.   The spring mound deposit Florisbad (Free State, South Africa) yielded several bird remains dating to the late Middle Pleistocene. These specimens derive from spring vent structures and are the product of natural taphonomic processes relating to the spring as primary sampling agent. The bird fossils can be assigned to Ostrich, Struthio camelus; Greater Flamingo, Phoenicopterus ruber .

The end of the Pleistocene epoch (20, to 12, years ago) was marked by a global ice age, which led to the extinction of many megafauna most people don't know is that this capitalized "Ice Age" was the last of no less than 11 Pleistocene ice ages, interspersed with more temperate intervals called "interglacials.'During these periods, much of North America and Eurasia.

Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene fauna and flora: The plants and animals of the Pleistocene are, in many respects, similar to those living today, but important differences exist.

Moreover, the spatial distribution of various Pleistocene fauna and flora types differed markedly from what it is at present. Changes in climate and environment caused large-scale migrations of both. Preliminary survey of the cultural material from beds I and II, Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania.

In addition, a list of the identified species is presented and a brief dis-cussion to highlight the importance of some localities and regions.

Key words: fossil birds, Pleistocene. During the Pleistocene, southern Calabria was the area through which several mammalian taxa dispersed into the Sicilian island via the Straits of Messina. The rich fossil record of Sicily allowed for the construction of a fairly detailed bio-chronological frame that is dated by correlation of vertebrate bearing deposits with marine deposits.

This paper examines archaeological bird bones from Viljandi – one of the strongest centres in prehistoric and medieval Estonia – and covers material f. A late Pleistocene deposit of 60 species of vertebrates and 12 of invertebrates is described from Robinson Cave, Overton County, Tennessee, U.S.A.

A previously extinct species of bird returned from the dead, reclaiming the island it previously lived on and re-evolving itself back into existence, scientists have said.

Palearctic since the Early Pleistocene (Tyrberg,). Resident species are more useful than migratory ones for this purpose, as they live in the same habitat during the whole year. Fossil birds are also useful to infer past climatic conditions.

A series of recent studies restricted to specimens and sites dated with high confidence suggest that the extinctions were concentrated between 50 and 40 ka on mainland Australia [24,26,33–36], and slightly later in Tasmania [].On the other hand, more extensive compilations of occurrences in.

The Pleistocene bird record is one of the most important records of vertebrate fossils in Mexico, and thus far includes already 10 % of the bird species currently recorded in the country.

This paper provides an initial appraisal of the fossil record on Mexican Pleistocene birds based on a summary of all the.
