The actual emergence(s) of such a versatile arboreal body plan in the Miocene
ape ancestors of Ardipithecus, a 'bauplan' different and more advanced than that of quadrupedal 'pronogrady' seen in monkeys and Proconsul (but not yet suspensory-specialised), is obscured by a dearth of sufficiently informative Middle and Late Miocene
fossil great apes.
Previous data collected elsewhere in Europe and Turkey suggested that the great ape's diet evolved from hard-shelled fruits and seeds to leaves, but these findings only contained samples from the early-Middle and Late Miocene
, while lack data from the epoch of highest diversity of hominoids in Western Europe.
A Messinian salinity crisis in the Mediterranean and Red Sea areas restricted marine Neogene deposits to limited ingressions into the edge of the mountain range, with Lower Miocene
carbonates transgressing onto older deposits.
Traverse (1955: 46) described the region around each pore in fossil Itea pollen from the Miocene
Brandon lignite of Vermont, USA, as appearing "pebbly" when examined using LM.
it probably had a profound impact on the structuring of Miocene
Oilex is very pleased to report that the Miocene
MBS reservoir has been
167-183, in Depositional environments, lithostratigraphy, and biostratigraphy of the White River and Arikaree Groups (Late Eocene to Early Miocene
, North America).
The papers included in this Special Publication address the dynamic evolution of carbonate systems deposited during the Oligocene and Miocene
in the context on climatic and Earth surfaces processes focusing on climatic trends and controls over deposition; temporal changes in carbonate producers and palaeoecology; carbonate terminology; facies; processes and environmental parameters (including water temperature and production depth profiles); carbonate producers and their spatial and temporal variability; and tectonic controls over architecture
These 4 wells also discovered non-associated natural gas within the same Late Miocene
Wojcicki and Kvacek (2003) consider these faint but distinctive impressions closely similar to Hemitrapa pomelii (Boulay) Mai from the early Miocene
of France (20.
Apache of the US in November 2002 made the first deep-water, sub-salt Miocene
oil find in the West Mediterranean Block 1 in the Nile Delta.
In 1995 I described a new species of turtle, Emydoidea hutchisoni, from the Middle Miocene
