This paper reports the palaeoxylotomical study of petrified conifer remains from Velitzelos collection, orig-inating from some fossiliferous sites of Greece, especially from the Aegean area (Evros, Limnos, Lesbos), aged of late Oligocene to early Miocene. Ten species were identified: Cupressinoxylon akdikii, Juniperoxylon acarcae, Tetraclinoxylon v...

The present paper represents the second part of the palaeoxylotomical study on the "Grădinaru Collection" that is housed by the National Museum of Geology, Bucharest. By the study of a new material collected from the Getic domain of the South Carpathians, Romania, the following taxa were identified and discussed in detail: Proto-cupressinoxylon dra...

We had in study some samples from a private collection of petrified wood, from South Apuseni mts., found in an area where numerous Miocene petrified woods were already described and tens lignotaxa were identified. These new petrified woods were collected from Ociu area, on the Church’s brook. They could contribute to better knowing that fabulous Mi...

A palaeoxylotomical study was done on several samples from a private collection of petrified wood found in Bozovici area, which were taxonomically identified. Bozovici area is a small Badenian depression filled by coarse continental deposits, with some interbedded coal and volcanic tuffs. The frequent lateral facies variations and the few fossils o...

The paper reports a palaeoxylotomical study of petrified palm remains (stem, root, rachis) collected from some fossil sites of Greece (Evros, Lemnos, Lesbos and Kastoria) aged to the late Oligocene to early Miocene. Five species of Palmoxylon were identified: P. daemonoropsoides (Unger) Kirchheimer, corr., P. chamaeropsoides Iamandei et Iamandei, s...

Early Jurassic flora in the Romanian Carpathians is well known by the study of fossil foliages found in the "Liassic" coaly deposits. The identified flora belongs to bryophytes, pteridophytes, pteridosperms, cycads and gym-nosperms. With a few exceptions, few data have been published as regards the Early Jurassic lignoflora from the Romanian Carpat...

A fragment of petrified wood was collected from the upper drainage basin of Valea Mare Creek, from the east side of the Ghimelci Hill (Fărăoani, Bacău County). The specimen comes from the sedimentary succession of the Pericarpathian Nappe, the outermost of the Moldavide Units within the Eastern Carpathians. There, the 'upper meni-lites' and the Pie...

Araucarioxylon Kraus is a widely known fossil genus generally used for woods similar to that of the extant Araucariaceae. However, since 1905, several researchers have pointed out that this name is a junior nomenclatural synonym and, as such, a nomen illegitimum. At least four generic names are in current use for fossil wood of this type: Agathoxyl...

This paper presents the palaeoxylotomical study of silicified wood specimens found in Nanovitsa depression, Eastern Rhodope Mts. In this area, a Petrified Forest has been described, hosted by an Oligocene volcano-sedimentary formation. The Petrified Forest occurs in a deep gorge, east of Momchilgrad, and is represented by petrified wood remains occ...

This paper presents the palaeoxylotomical study of some lignofossils collected from Caprioara valley, Feleacu Hill area, close to Cluj-Napoca, Romania, from a sedimentary formation of Early Sarmatian age, as the mollusks and foraminifers associations show. From there, a small Early Sarmatian Flora – known as “Feleacu Flora” – with species of Pinus,...

A new collection of petrified wood coming from the Curvature Carpathians, Romania, is studied. Some samples have been found in the Oligocene "Kliwa Sandstones Formation" and some others are reworked within the so-called “Salt Breccia” (=Cosmina breccia). Previously, in this area, some pieces of Oligocene petrified wood were described and identified...

Telephragmoxylon transsylvanicum, a new morphospecies of cheirolepidiaceous conifer wood, typical for the Latest Cretaceous from Sebeş Valley in Oarda-Sebeş sector (Alba district), coeval with the latest dinosaurs, is described. Geological and palaeobotanical settings for South Apuseni Mts. area are sketched and paleoclimatical remarks are suggeste...

A new collection of Oligocene fossil woods coming from the Great Curvature of Carpathians, Romania, define a very new area for petrified woods occurrence which deserves a special interest because its age and its novelty. Beside this, it’s a region where amber appears within formation of the same age and a relation between is to be searched since a...

Palaeobiogeography plays an important role in the evolution of continental plants. This has been demonstrated mainly for modern biota and for past biota on a very large scale only. During the Jurassic–Early Cretaceous Mid-Eastern Europe was an archipelago, thus a particularly suitable area for a more detailed study. We investigated the area's plant...

This paper presents some new species of Late Cretaceous tracheidoxyles from South Apuseni, as Dammaroxylon formosum n.sp., Agathoxylon ultimus n.sp., Prototaxodioxylon marisii n.sp., in addition to a Lauraceae-Mastixiaceae Flora, priorly identified.

We have studied a small collection of petrified wood coming from a new location: Bala (Mehedinţi County), currently hosted by the Muzeul Regiunii "Porţilor de Fier" ("Iron Gates" Region Museum) in Drobeta-Turnu Severin. The newly identified lignotaxa belong to Conifers and Dicots; it adds to the Middle Miocene flora already known in the region. The...

This is the second part of the study on a new collection of fossil wood from Prăvă-leni (Zarand, South Apuseni -Metalliferous Mts., Romania). Three taxa have been identified by xylotomical study of six specimens: Populoxylon sp. (cf. Populus alba L.), Fraxinoxylon pram-bachense HOFMANN, Fraxinoxylon komlosense GREGUSS. These new identifications arg...

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.
