        The other trend was mostly confined to South America, which was isolated from North America during the Oligocene epoch (the Central American land bridge would not form for another 20 million years) and hosted a bizarre array of megafauna mammals, including the elephant-like Pyrotherium and the meat-eating marsupial Borhyaena (the marsupials of Oligocene South . Oligocene. The Oligocene epoch (39 to 22 million years ago) is the transition period between the earlier and later Tertiary period (65 to 2 million years ago).. A key feature of evolution is the ripple effect created by geographical changes that influence climate and therefore vegetation and ultimately the ways in which animals develop. The most important geographical event .

        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 .   Missimer TM () Late Oligocene to Pliocene evolution of the central portion of the south Florida Platform: Mixing of siliciclastic and carbonate Sediments.

The hiatal gap along the upper sequence boundary (SB-B), marking the Arcadia Formation overlain by Miocene–Pliocene sediments that vary in age and composition regionally, records the same increase from the central part of the platform (southwest Florida, Arcadia Fm/Peace River Fm, ∼ m.y.) to the south platform edge (lower Florida Keys.

Oligocene Epoch, third and last major worldwide division of the Paleogene Period ( million to 23 million years ago), spanning the interval between million to 23 million years ago.

The Oligocene Epoch is subdivided into two ages and their corresponding rock stages: the Rupelian and the followed the Eocene Epoch and was succeeded by the Miocene Epoch, the. The tectonic and geodynamic evolution of the Pelagian platform and of the Pantelleria Rift System, located in the foreland of the Apennine‐Sicilian‐Maghrebian Belt, from the Late Oligocene onward, is still debated.

Here we present a new interpretation based on structural data collected in the Malta and Gozo islands. The evolution of the horse, a mammal of the family Equidae, occurred over a geologic time scale of 50 million years, transforming the small, dog-sized, forest-dwelling Eohippus into the modern horse.

Paleozoologists have been able to piece together a more complete outline of the evolutionary lineage of the modern horse than of any other animal. Much of this evolution.

The Oligocene Epoch Million Years Ago. Early Oligocene, After a hiatus, carbonate deposition continues as the Suwannee Limestone is laid down and the Florida Platform persists as a subtropical carbonate bank, very similar to the present Bahamas. Massive coral reefs are now prominent.

Late Oligocene. The tropics diminished, giving way to cooler woodlands and grasslands. Although there was a slight warming period in the late Oligocene, the overall cooling trend was to continue, culminating in the Ice Ages of the Pleistocene.

Plant Life. By the Oligocene the major evolution and dispersal of modern types of angiosperms had occurred. From the Early Cretaceous to the Late Eocene, the southern part of the Florida Platform was isolated by the channel to the north and the Florida Straits to the south, which limited deposition on the platform to carbonate sediments, and at times locally evaporites, similar to the modern Bahamas Platform (Hull, ; Puri & Vernon, ; Randazzo & Jones, ).Late oligocene to pliocene evolution of the central portion of the south Florida platform.
