Online exhibits: Geologic time scale: Mesozoic Era. The Jurassic Period. Great plant-eating dinosaurs roaming the earth, feeding on lush ferns and palm-like cycads and bennettitaleans smaller but vicious carnivores stalking the great herbivores oceans full of fish, squid, and coiled ammonites, plus great ichthyosaurs and long-necked plesiosaurs vertebrates taking to the air, like. Vertebrate fossils are extremely sparse in the Arikaree Formation in North Dakota but tend to suggest a late Whitneyan to late Arikareean age. This is consistent with an age of + Ma from fission track dating of volcanic glass from the middle part .
In terrestrial zoology, the megafauna (from Greek μέγας megas "large" and New Latin fauna "animal life") comprises the large or giant animals of an area, habitat, or geological period. The most common thresholds used are weight over 40 kilograms (90 lb) or 44 kilograms ( lb) (i.e., having a mass comparable to or larger than a human) or over a tonne, 1, kilograms (2, lb) (i.e. A field guide to freshwater fishes of North America north of Mexico.

This item appears in the following Collection(s) Zoology, University of Michigan Museum of (UMMZ)Cited by: The middle to late Cenozoic evolution of rivers and drainages in southwestern North America occurred on a stage that was set by the previous m.y.
of geologic history and modified by continued tectonic activity (Cowan and Bruhn, ; Miller et al., ; Christiansen and Yeats, ).This long geologic history can be divided into four major stages, as follows: (1) Late Jurassic and.
Due to a bias in the fossil record, Jurassic freshwater fish faunas are rather scarce and only a few are known worldwide: several poorly known fish assemblages in Asia (Chang and Miao, ) and.

The importance of the late Silurian Entelognathus, announced to the world in September ofis that it's the earliest placoderm (armored fish) yet identified in the fossil record, and it possessed primitive jaws that made it a more efficient predator.
In fact, the jaws of Entelognathus may turn out to be a kind of paleontological "Rosetta. Since cyprinids dominate today’s freshwater fish communities, it is difficult to believe that they have done so for only the last 10–20 million years (m. y) in areas such as western North America, Europe, Africa and India.
The Asian-Oriental region may differ, although many more fossils are needed. The western pupfish clade (Cyprinodontidae: Cyprinodon) consists of nine species that occur primarily in isolation from one another in the large area extending from the Guzmán Basin, northwestern Chihuahua, Mexico, to the Death Valley region of southeastern California and southwestern paper presents a reassessment of estimated divergence times based on a compilation of previously.
Shoreline altitudes of several pluvial lakes in the western Great Basin of North America record successively smaller lakes from the early to the late Pleistocene.
This decrease in lake size indicates a long-term drying trend in the regional climate that is not seen in global marine oxygen-isotope records.
The present day disjunct distribution pattern of catostomids, with 68 extant species widespread in North America and the northern part of Middle America and only two in the restricted areas of Asia, is the result of their post-Eocene decline in Asia due to the competitive pressure from cyprinids, their Late Cenozoic radiation in North America, and the vicariant and dispersal events triggered by the.
ago. The supercontinent of Pangaea was breaking apart. What is now North America was near the equator. The Painted Desert region was not dry and arid as it is today, but was a subtropical environ-ment filled with lush plant life, large amphibians and reptiles, and fish that swam in the many rivers, streams, and small lakes found in the region.
From the early Cenozoic “Greenhouse” time interval, continuous central Arctic Ocean sedimentary records, allowing a development of chronologic sequences of climate and environmental change through Cenozoic times and a comparison with global climate records were missing prior to the IODP Expedition (Arctic Ocean Coring Expedition.
Online exhibits: Geologic time scale. The Cenozoic Era. The Cenozoic Era is the most recent of the three major subdivisions of animal history. The other two are the Mesozoic and Paleozoic Eras. The Cenozoic spans only about 65 million years, from the end of the Cretaceous Period and the extinction of non-avian dinosaurs to the present.
The Cenozoic is sometimes called the Age of Mammals. The Eocene epoch also witnessed the rise of North America's western mountain ranges. Terrestrial Life During the Eocene Epoch Perissodactyls (odd-toed ungulates, such as horses and tapirs) and artiodactyls (even-toed ungulates, such as deer and pigs) can all trace their ancestry back to the primitive mammalian genera of the Eocene epoch.
In addition, over the last decade at least species were described every year. There are currently about freshwater fish species, and the estimate for the freshwater fish fauna alone points to a final diversity between and species. South America also has c. species of marine fishes. The mega‐diverse fish faunas of South.
