Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology is an international medium for the publication of high quality and multidisciplinary, original studies and comprehensive reviews in the field of palaeo-environmental geology. The journal aims at bringing together data with global implications from research in the many different disciplines involved in palaeo-environmental investigations.
X-rays reveal fossil secrets
A sophisticated imaging technique has allowed scientists to virtually peer inside a 10-million-year-old sea urchin, uncovering a treasure trove of hidden fossils.
Paleoclimate researchers find connection between carbon cycles, climate trends
Making predictions about climate variability often means looking to the past to find trends. Now paleoclimate researchers from the University of Missouri have found clues in exposed bedrock alongside an Alabama highway that ...
Discovering missing body parts of ancient fossils
Certain specimens of the fossil Dickinsonia are incomplete because ancient currents lifted them from the sea floor, a team of researchers led by paleontologists at the University of California, Riverside has found. Sand then ...
The 'return' of the hazel dormouse to the Iberian Peninsula
From the east of France all the way to Russia, the hazel dormouse now inhabits practically the whole of Europe. However, on the Iberian Peninsula it is absent where its first remains were found, which date from the Miocene, ...
Fossilised swimming hippos could help us understand dinosaur footprints
Fossil swim tracks in Kenya left by hippopotami may help scientists understand how the largest dinosaurs moved in water.
The Gulf Stream kept going during the last Ice Age
The warm Atlantic water continued to flow into the icy Nordic seas during the coldest periods of the last Ice Age.
Groundbreaking deepwater fossil study reveals reef's past and future
(Phys.org) —Many people look back at their time on the Great Barrier Reef by viewing holiday snaps. Scientists have taken an even longer look back at the Great Barrier Reef via another image caught in time - deepwater fossils ...
Biggest extinction in history caused by climate-changing meteor
(Phys.org) —It's well known that the dinosaurs were wiped out 66 million years ago when a meteor hit what is now southern Mexico but evidence is accumulating that the biggest extinction of all, 252.3m years ago, at the ...
What a 66-million-year-old forest fire reveals about the last days of the dinosaurs
As far back as the time of the dinosaurs, 66 million years ago, forests recovered from fires in the same manner they do today, according to a team of researchers from McGill University and the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
Dinosaur-era climate change study suggests reasons for turtle disappearance
Dramatic climate change was previously proposed to be responsible for the disappearance of turtles 71-million-years ago, because they were considered to be "climate-sensitive" animals. Results of this research, however, show ...
