Lauraceae fossils from a volcanic Palaeocene oceanic island, Ninetyeast Ridge, Indian Ocean: ancient long-distance dispersal?
Aim: Geological and fossil records are critical for historical biogeography studies. A plant fossil assemblage from a small, well-dated, transient late Palaeocene island was re-investigated with regard to regional geology and vicariance versus dispersal hypotheses. Location: Deep Sea Drilling Program Leg 22, Site 214 on the Ninetyeast Ridge (NER) in the mid-Indian Ocean region. Methods: Leaf cuticular material was recovered from residues from a previous palynofloral study of Site 214 sediments...[Show more]
