Bahadur Singh Kotlia
The larger mammalian fossils (Equus, Elephas, Cervus and Cams) being described from the Plio-Pleistocene Karewa deposits of Kashmir Valley, India, were recovered from the sections already dated by paleomagnetism. Based on these data, the occurrence of Equus and Cervus is dated to about 2.0 Ma. Elephas and Canis are documented only from the Brunhes epoch. The stratigraphic occurrence of these genera is correlated with other known biochronological sequences of subcontinent, and discussed in connection with...
