No-analogue associations in the fossil record of southern conifers reveal conservatism in precipitation, but not temperature axes

Matilda Brown, Timothy Brodribb & Gregory Jordan
Aim: Southern conifers have evolved under different evolutionary pressures to northern lineages, but in both regions these plants have undergone extensive extinction and range alteration over the Cenozoic (the last 66 million years). It is not possible to directly observe the ecology of fossils, but indirect evidence of changes in bioclimatic envelopes can be derived from no-analogue assemblages – groups of co-occurring fossils that have climatically incongruous living relatives. We identify and examine the specific...
