4. Radiocarbon dating and status of the oldest extant Ceylon iron wood (Manilkara hexandra) in the riverine Ramsar site of India.

During recent field surveys, a new Ceylon iron wood (Manilkara hexandra) population was discovered in the Upper Ganga Ramsar Site, Uttar Pradesh (UP), India. The largest specimen located at Van Khan deshwar partially collapsed in 2012, which led to a canopy impairment. The rupture enabled direct...

5. Radiocarbon dating for the reconstruction of the 1717 CE triolet rock avalanche in the Mont Blanc massif, Italy.

The Arp Nouva peat bog located in the upper Ferret Valley in the Mont Blanc massif was critically evaluated since published radiocarbon dates have led to controversial conclusions on the formation of this swamp. Radiocarbon dating of woody fragments from three pits of up to 1 m depth was used to...

6. Evolution of an estuarine valley to barrier-lagoon system promoted by tidal prism change during a transgressive event (Lower Permian, Paraná Basin).

In modern marine marginal environments, the coastal morphology directly influences the tidal and wave processes. In this paper we present an example of an ancient coastal zone where the change in coastal morphology controlled the tidal range. This study focuses on the Permian Rio Bonito Formation...

7. A review of past changes in extratropical cyclones in the northern hemisphere and what can be learned for the future.

Extratropical cyclones, a major phenomenon of the mid-latitude atmospheric dynamics, show strong variability over a range of time scales. Future projections hint at an increase of cyclonic intensity and the associated precipitation, an important fact to be considered when developing future risk...

8. Review of parasites found in extinct animals: what can be revealed.

Parasitism is inherent to life and observed in all species. Extinct animals have been studied to understand what they looked like, where and how they lived, what they fed on, and the reasons they became extinct. Paleoparasitology helps to clarify these questions based on the study of the parasites...

12. Natural to cultural: the vegetation history of the southern Yorkshire Dales, UK.

The Yorkshire Dales is one of the most iconic agricultural landscapes in Britain. However, many questions remain over the evolution of this landscape through time and its natural state before major human impacts. Here we present new palynological data that provide insight into the vegetation and...

13. Does the proportion of shattering vs. non-shattering cereal remains in archeobotanical assemblages reflect Near Eastern neolithic arable fields?

A protracted domestication time-frame for cereals in the Near East is widely endorsed by the plant domestication research community. This occurs in tandem with the pre-domestication cultivation concept, which rests on the assumption that human husbandry operations (namely cultivation) exerted...

14. Can riparian eucalypts be used for hydroclimatic reconstruction? The case for Eucalyptus coolabah to define palaeo-flood events.

In the Australian semi-arid-arid zone, hydrological records are typically only 40-60 years long, prohibiting an understanding of long-term hydrological variability. Kati-Thanda - Lake Eyre Basin (KT-LEB), is the fifth largest terminal lake in the world, experiences highly variable flows and...

17. The biogeographic history of the relictual Gondwanan lineage of Australian burrowing crayfish.

Biogeographic investigations of Gondwanan mesic Australian fauna are scarce. The burrowing clade of Australian freshwater crayfish represent an ideal group to provide biogeographic inferences, due to their extensive distribution across the continent and their presumed ancient origin. This study...
