This paper presents the collection of Middle Miocene flora from the locality Jasikovac (Berane-Police Basin) in Montenegro. The main feature and significance of this paleoflora is its unusual composition, expressed through domination of willow-type oaks, pines and sequoias, and an almost complete absence of other phanerophyte Gymnospermae and Angyo...

The paper provides a list of published post-Miocene flora found in the territory of former Yugoslavia, presenting Pliocene, Pleistocene and sub-recent paleoflora from Serbia, North Macedonia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Montenegro. The author has listed all the localities and papers she has been able to access. Most of these paleofloras had been...

Berane Basin in Montenegro has been known for rich paleoflora of diverse geological ages. The remains of paleovegetation of various ages were preserved by the lake occurring in this area from Late Oligocene to Early Pliocene. Therefore, the shifts in vegetation during the Miocene period may be easily followed by studying the paleofloras collected a...

Paleoflora recorded from the ‘‘Kaludra’’ site is dominated by leaves of the morphogenus Daphnogene. In addition to the high number of Daphnogene specimens there is a wide spectrum of deciduous species. The composition of this flora is insufficiently specific because it shares characteristics of Early as well as Middle Miocene floras. The large numb...

About a hundred specimens of fossilized plants have been collected at the locality Guvno near the village Sibnica. These are mostly leaf imprints contained in yellowish marly sandstone. The majority of the specimens are remains of the deciduous genera Ulmus, Carpinus and Zelkova, while other deciduous genera are represented with a smaller number of...

The Natural History Museum in Belgrade possesses an extensive collection of Carboniferous fossil plants originating from the area of Vrška Čuka. The decision to show the collection came as a result of a number of specimens, the wellpreserved fossil material, and the fact that in Serbia there are very few localities with carboniferous flora. The beg...

The greatest number of the Paleozoic and the Mesozoic sites with macroflora is situated in Eastern Serbia. The best-represented ages are the Upper Devonian, Stephanian and Rhaeto-Lias (Triassic-Jurassic), while the Westphalian, Upper Triassic and Cretaceous were less well preserved. This paper includes an overview of the published sites with macrof...

SYNOPSIS This paper includes descriptions of 7 localities: 4 from Early Miocene, 1 from Middle Miocene and 2 from Late Miocene. The studied paleofloras are significantly different from each other and clearly defined. The dominant vegetation in the Early Miocene was a mixed deciduous-evergreen forest with the almost equal percentage of BLD and BLE c...

Abstract: The siliciclastic sediments of Maoče, with its sand beds and sand lenses of fluvial origin, as the clearly featured former shoreline, characterize this remote gulf of DS Lake. Its shallow water is corroborated by the frequent appearance of desiccation cracks. The lacustrine influence is mirrored in rare marly interbeds. Gyrogonites with m...

This paper presents the study of a part of a column under the main coal measure at the drill hole GS-1, including the first and the second underlying coal seams and some of the sediments beneath them. Among the recorded fossils gyrogonites of Charophyta prevail; previously unknown among meiofossils in the area, they indicate depths of water to ca....

In the present study, 14 published megafloras from the Serbian Cenozoic are analyzed with respect to vegetation type, palaeoclimate, and palaeogeographic settings. The floras cover a time-span from the Oligocene to the late Miocene. The results obtained are compared with continental climate records from other parts of Europe and discussed in the co...

The rich Oligocene flora collected at Janda (Mt. Fruška Gora, Serbia) included Lauraceae, Cupressaceae and Arecaceae, a large number of trifoliolate leaves of Platanus neptuni mf. fraxinifolia. In spite of similar dimensions (3-5 cm in length and 3-4 cm in width), these leaves are very variable in structure and the shape of leaflets and may be meso...

NECLIME is an open international network of scientists working on Cenozoic climate evolution and related changes of continental ecosystems. During the past 65 million years of Earth history, globally warmer-then-present conditions prevailed in a world with almost modern paleogeography. These timespans represent promising case studies for anticipated future scenarios. Within the NECLIME network, we aim to combine data on past climate change and its environmental impact for large-scale reconstructions. NECLIME research activities comprise paleoclimate reconstructions, including atmospheric CO₂ and ecosystem analysis using multiple quantitative methods on various primarily continental proxies (plants; vertebrates; invertebrates; geochemistry and geological proxies). Complementing model studies are employed to assess connections and processes driving ocean, atmosphere and biosphere at global and regional scales. NECLIME was established in 1999 with the aim to understand Neogene trends across Eurasia. This basic idea quickly and constantly expanded to a global interest and a wider stratigaphical frame. The steadily growing NECLIME network with currently around 140 members in 34 countries is coordinated by a team of researchers and an advisory board. NECLIME holds annual conferences and workshops and administers working groups bringing forward scientific exchange, joint projects, and the integration of research data.
