Mammals, birds, and reptiles, many of which would be easily recognizable as relatives of living animals, roamed the landscape. Volcanic eruptions in the young Rockies periodically covered the state with blankets of ash. Glacial deposits from the Late Cenozoic (Pleistocene) preserve the remains of Ice Age elephants, horses, and other vertebrates.

Papers in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Paper Skinner, M.F. and C.W. Hibbard (). Early Pleistocene Pre-Glacial and Glacial Rocks and Faunas of North-Central Nebraska. The fauna, or assemblage of animals, of early Pleistocene time was varied in character. The animals were adapted to the mild climate that then prevailed and remained until after the southward advance of the ice sheet, but were driven away or exterminated before the close of the ice age, and their place was taken by animals such as are now found.

    Cenozoic Fossils of Nebraska. At the end of the Cretaceous, an asteroid impact led to the extinction of dinosaurs, ammonites and many other faunas. After the end-Cretaceous mass extinction, the numbers and diversity of mammals increased leading to the "Age of Mammals" during the Cenozoic.   The Diamond Valley Lake local fauna: late Pleistocene vertebrates from inland southern California. Pages in Papers on geology, vertebrate paleontology, and biostratigraphy in honor of Michael O. Woodburne (L. B. Albright, III, editor).

While 90% of Australia's large mammals were extinct by ca. 45 ka, their responses to glacial-interglacial cycling have remained unknown, due to a lack of rigorous biostratigraphic studies and the rarity of terrestrial climatic records that can be related Cited by:   The study area comprises about km 2 in south-central Nebraska ().While the top of the “Citellus zone” is coincident with the top of the Gilman Canyon Formation, the burrows that define the “Citellus zone” extend several meters into the underlying Loveland Formation.

This is the base of the “Citellus zone” ().The geology of the study area is summarized in Tobin (in press).Cited by: 8.

The end of the Pleistocene epoch (20, to 12, years ago) was marked by a global ice age, which led to the extinction of many megafauna most people don't know is that this capitalized "Ice Age" was the last of no less than 11 Pleistocene ice ages, interspersed with more temperate intervals called "interglacials.'During these periods, much of North America and Eurasia.

The book covers the end of the Age of Dinosaurs and the Age of Mammals until our current century. The author covers the changing climate, geography, flora and faunal species of each epoch (Paleocene, Eocene, Oligocene, Miocene, Pliocene, Pleistocene, and Holocene) in separate chapters, accompanied by sketches, graphs, illustrations and a colour /5(6).

Adams, G. I. () Physiographic divisions of Kansas: Kansas Acad. Sci. Trans., vol. 18, pp. Alden, W. C., and Leighton, M. M. () The.In Europe the disappearance of the ice-sheets was followed by a dry climate, when a fauna like that of the Russian Steppes extended to western Europe.

Of Pleistocene animals it is only the mammals that require mention. Here also we find the same mingling of northern and southern forms, and association of types now widely separated.
