How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
A palynological investigation has been conducted on Lower–Upper Miocene sediments from Jylland, Denmark, corresponding to the time interval of about 19 to 8 Ma. The sediments, derived from the Sdr. Vium drill core, were deposited in marine to marginal-marine environments, as shown by the relatively high abundance of dinoflagellate cysts in all samp...
: The Triassic–Jurassic (Tr–J) boundary marks a major extinction event, which (∼200 Ma) resulted in global extinctions of fauna and flora both in the marine and terrestrial realms. There prevail great challenges in determining the exact location of the terrestrial Tr–J boundary, because of endemism of taxa and the scarcity of fossils in terrestrial...
Two exposures in Jylland, Denmark, encompassing beds of latest Oligocene to earliest Miocene age (latest Chattian–early Aquitanian) yielded well-preserved palynofloras. The assemblages indicate that Jylland was covered by extensive Taxodiaceae swamp forests in the mid-Cenozoic. Besides a Taxodiaceae–Cupressaceae association, which was overwhelmingl...
A historic collection of plant fossils from the Bagå Formation, Bornholm, Denmark registered at the Lund University is reviewed and found to be dominated by ferns with subsidiary Ginkgoales, Coniferales, Bennettitales and Equisitales. Ten genera are represented, of which six can be confidently identified to species level. The Bagå Formation flora i...
Palynological samples from Upper Triassic and Lower Jurassic exposures and borehole sections of the Hoganas and Rya formations (Fm), NW Skåne (Sweden), exhibit diverse and generally well-preserved palynomorph assemblages that can be divided into four miospore zones (from bottom to top): (1) the informal "Topmost upper Rhaetian" zone of Lund; (2) th...
A palynological analysis of a Lower Miocene cored section from Sønder Vium in western Jylland, Denmark, provides new data regarding the vegetation and climate during the earliest Neogene. Most samples yielded well-preserved palynomorphs. Terrestrial pollen and spores dominate, with lesser proportions of dinoflagellates. A fluvial input into the mar...
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.
