The Eocene-Oligocene Transition by Donald R. Prothero



The transition from the Eocene to the Oligocene epochs from approximately 47 to 27 million years ago was one of the most dramatic episodes of climatic and biotic change since the demise of the dinosaurs. The mild tropical climates of the Paleocene and early Eocene were replaced by modern climatic conditions and extremes, including glacial ice in Antarctica.

Series: Princeton Series in Geology and Paleontology. Book Description: The transition from the Eocene to the Oligocene epochs was the most significant event in earth history since the extinction of dinosaurs. As the first Antarctic ice sheets appeared, major extinctions and faunal turnovers took place on the land and in the sea, eliminating forms adapted to a tropical world and replacing them with the ancestors of most of our modern animal and plant life. 25. british mammalian paleocommunities across the eocene-oligocene transition and their environmental implications.
