Palaeoclimate reconstructions of the Oligocene to Pliocene from eight sites in northwest Germany using the Coexistence Approach, supplement to: Utescher, Torsten; Mosbrugger, Volker; Ashraf, Abdul Rahman (2000): Terrestrial climate evolution in northwest Germany over the last 25 million years. Palaios, 15(5), 430-449

Torsten Utescher, Volker Mosbrugger & Abdul Rahman Ashraf
The first detailed reconstruction of the continental palaeoclimate evolution of the Northwest German Tertiary (Late Oligocene to Pliocene) is presented. The paleoclimate data are derived from the paleobotanical record using the coexistence approach, a method recently introduced that employs climatic requirements of the Nearest Living Relatives of a fossil flora. Twenty six megafloras (fruits and seeds, leaves, woods) from the Tertiary succession of the Lower Rhine Basin and neighboring areas are analyzed with respect to...
