Article
The late middle Miocene Quebrada Honda Basin of southern Bolivia has long been studied for its diverse fossils of terrestrial vertebrates and, more recently, for its record of paleoelevation and paleoclimate in the Eastern Cordillera of the Andes Mountains. This paleobiological and paleoenvironmental archive is constrained by high resolution radioi...

Quebrada Honda (QH) is among the best-characterized middle Miocene terrestrial vertebrate sites of South America, with >40 spp. (mainly mammals) documented. Our work clarifies its paleoenvironmental and geochronological context. The studied section (~180 m) can be divided into: (1) a lower unit of reddish mudstone and minor sandstone with basal all...

We use paleopedology and ichnology to elucidate the habitat of the late middle Miocene fossil site of Quebrada Honda, southern Bolivia. The paleosols represent three pedotypes, Type 1 and Type 2 paleosols are interpreted as Inceptisols (Eutrudepts) and Entisols (Udifluvents), respectively, which formed on proximal and distal floodplains in a season...
Article
The early middle Miocene (Langhian age) site of Cerdas in the southern Bolivian Altiplano has produced a diverse fauna of extinct mammals (15 species in seven orders and 11 families). In this study, we use paleosols and ichnofossils to reconstruct its paleoenvironment and the conditions in which its fossils were preserved. The described paleosols r...

Neoichnological experiments involving a species of sand-swimming skink, Chalcides ocellatus, demonstrate the diversity of biogenic structures produced by desertdwelling lizards. The skinks were placed into terrariums with ten, 1-cm-thick layers of fine-, medium-, or coarse-grained sand for periods of 7 to 14 days. Sediment moisture content was held...

Neoichnological experiments involving a species of tropical, ground-dwelling skink, Mabuya multifasciata, demonstrate the diversity of biogenic structures produced by medium-sized lizards. Although the majority of skinks are ground dwellers or burrowers, little is known about the biogenic structures produced by this most diverse group of lizards. T...

Article
Full-text available
The Upper Pennsylvanian Casselman Formation of southeastern Ohio contains four distinct paleosol types that formed in alluvial systems within the distal Appalachian foreland basin. The properties of these paleosols as well as their small-scale lateral and vertical variations were studied to interpret the paleoenvironmental and paleoecological condi...
