The Oligocene (/ ˈ ɒ l. ɡ ə. s iː n / OL-ih-ghə-seen) is a geologic epoch of the Paleogene Period and extends from about million to 23 million years before the present ( ± to ± Ma).As with other older geologic periods, the rock beds that define the epoch are well identified but the exact dates of the start and end of the epoch are slightly uncertain.

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 America were every match for the.

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 separating the. The Oligocene is an important transition from the Eocene, which in many respects was very like the world inhabited by the last of the dinosaurs, to the more recognizably modern world of the Miocene.

The beginning of the Oligocene is marked by a sudden decrease in earth's temperature. The Antarctic continent had drifted to its current position.

The Oligocene Epoch. The Oligocene Epoch, right smack in the middle of the Tertiary Period (and end of the Paleogene), lasted from about to 23 million years ago.* Although it lasted a "short" 11 million years, a number of major changes occurred during this time.

These changes include the appearance of the first elephants with trunks, early.

Canidae is a family of carnivorous and omnivorous mammals of the order s that belong to the family Canidae are called family Canidae is divided into two tribes: Vulpini ("true foxes"), and Canini ("true dogs").

Canids of the tribe Vulpini (foxes) are called "vulpines". The evolutionary history of canids is a history of successive radiations re- peatedly occupying a broad spectrum of niches ranging from large, pursuit pred- ators to small omnivores, or even to.

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. To facilitate communication, the specimen listed as Merycoides harrisonensis in the book (e.g., Figure C) is called Phenacocoelus luskensis by MacFadden and Morgan (), while the Thomas Farm oreodont is calledMerychyus elegans in the book and Merychyus cf.

By the Oligocene, all three subfamilies of canids (Hesperocyoninae, Borophaginae, and Caninae) had appeared in the fossil records of North earliest and most primitive branch of the Canidae was the Hesperocyoninae lineage, which included the coyote-sized Mesocyon of the Oligocene (38–24 Mya).

These early canids probably evolved for the fast pursuit of prey in a. The Biodiversity Heritage Library works collaboratively to make biodiversity literature openly available to the world as part of a global biodiversity community.

Xiaoming Wang and Richard H. Tedford have spent the past 20 years studying the evolutionary history of the family Canidae.

Both are well known for having established the modern framework for the evolutionary relationship of canids. Combining their research with Mauricio Antón's impeccable reconstructions of both extinct and extant species, Wang and Tedford present a remarkably detailed /5(3).

It was recombined as Hyaenocyon basilatus by Cope (); it was revalidated by Matthew () and Wang (). It was assigned to Hyaenocyon by Cope ( Dependent on a shrinking supply of bamboo, hunted mercilessly for its pelt, and hostage to profiteering schemes once in captivity, the panda is on the brink of extinction.

Here, acclaimed naturalist George Schaller uses his great evocative powers, and the insight gained by four and a half years. The late Oligocene Deseadan record includes two major groups that are thought to represent early waif dispersals from other continents.

One of these, the caviomorph rodents (e.g. Porcupines, capybaras, chinchillas, and a wide assortment of smaller forms), was the only group of rodents in South America until the Plio-Pleistocene.

Conclusion It is clear that each species in Family Canidae has come from one ancestor (either Canis Lupus or Miacids).

Each type of animal evolved it's own variations with the most diverse being the dog, and it is amazing that we are responsible for the evolution of domestic.

The ancestry of dog-like carnivores, as well as cat-like carnivores, goes back to the miacids, a group of carnivorans from some 45 mya, which shared certain features, miacids, such as Tapocyon, had retractable claws like a cat, but had broad back molar teeth like a dog.

These two groups diverged about 40 mya, with the. Oligocene Epoch ( mya) By history's standards, the Oligocene is relatively uneventful, both geologically and biologically.
