    The editors have brought together the finest scholars working today on the Paleocene-Eocene transition. Covering mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, and plants, as well as the spectrum of marine biotas, the book documents both the well-established and the lesser-known turnovers, such as those of the calcareous nannoplankton and terrestrial mollusks.   "The early Eocene Epoch (50 million years ago) was about as warm as the Earth has been over the past 65 million years, since the extinction of the dinosaurs," Ivany says. "There were crocodiles above the Arctic Circle and palm trees in Alaska.

The Eocene (/ ˈ iː. ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ iː. oʊ-/ EE-ə-seen, EE-oh-) Epoch is a geological epoch that lasted from about 56 Eocene book million years ago (mya).

It is the second epoch of the Paleogene Period in the modern Cenozoic name Eocene comes from the Ancient Greek ἠώς (ēṓs, "dawn") and καινός (kainós, "new") and refers to the "dawn" of modern ('new') fauna that.

The text relates how, during a period of global cooling, the planet's climate and vegetation changed dramatically.4/5(1). In Zumaia the Paleocene/Eocene boundary occurs on the cliff Eocene book the entrance to the Itzurun beach (Fig.

During the Eocene, forest vegetation, increased rainfall, and hotter conditions spread from the equator to the earth's ecology was relatively homogeneous. With the Eocene/Oligocene transition, however, ecological stability started to break down, and the world was thrown into the.

The Eocene epoch was when the first prehistoric whales left dry land and opted for a life in the sea, a trend that culminated in the middle Eocene Basilosaurus, which attained lengths of up to 60 feet and weighed in the neighborhood of 50 to 75 tons.

Sharks continued to evolve as well, but few fossils are known from this epoch. Eocene Epoch, second of three major worldwide divisions of the Paleogene Period (66 million to 23 million years ago) that began 56 million years ago and ended million years ago.

It follows the Paleocene Epoch and precedes the Oligocene Epoch. The Eocene is often divided into Early (56 million. The transition between the end of the Eocene and the beginning of the Oligocene, called the Grande Coupure (the "Great Break" in continuity) in Europe, is marked by large-scale extinction and floral and faunal turnover (although minor in comparison to the largest mass extinctions).

Most of the affected organisms were marine or aquatic in nature. They included the last of the ancient cetaceans. The marine Eocene-Oligocene transition of 34 million years ago was a critical turning point in Earth's climatic history, when the warm, high-diversity "greenhouse" world of the early Eocene ceded to the glacial, "icehouse" conditions of the early Oligocene.

The Early Eocene (Ypresian) is thought to have had the highest mean annual temperatures of the entire Cenozoic, with temperatures about 30° C; relatively low temperature gradients from pole to pole; and high precipitation in a world that was essentially ice connections existed between Antarctica and Australia, between North America and.The Eocene is the heyday of the perissodactyls, with more kinds of this ungulate group present than in any other epoch.

As the Eocene progressed, the Earth's temperature gradually cooled. The rainforest-like habitats that covered much of the continents gave way to more open woodland.
