Miocene mammals, stratigraphy and environment of Muruarot Hill, Kenya. CARY T. MADDEN. Fossil mammals from Muruarot Hill in northwestern Kenya are conspecific with mammals in the Early Miocene fauna of Rusinga Island indicating that the age of the Muruarot Hill fauna, long disputed, is almost certainly Early Miocene.

By ~5 Ma, faunas were distinctly different to mid-Miocene ones in East Africa, as well as in Asia (Hill ). In Tugen Hills, sediments dated between ~ and Ma show the earliest change. Kenya book early Miocene sites of Moruorot and Kalodirr (Kenya, Myr) have yielded a rich collection of mammals.

Modern biodiversity displays striking geographic gradients in species richness at regional to continental scales.

Best known is the latitudinal diversity gradient, documented for many clades in continental and marine settings (Hillebrand ).A second widespread gradient is the increase in species richness in topographically complex regions, typically mountain ranges.

Paleomagnetic stratigraphy and K‐Ar age determinations are reported for the type section of the middle Miocene Ngorora Formation, found in the Kenya rift valley. The magnetostratigraphy is well correlated to the geomagnetic reversal time scale (GRTS) and spans from.

The oldest known apes derive from the latest Oligocene (26 ma) site of Losidok in northern Kenya (32) and from the earliest Miocene (23 ma) site of Meswa Bridge in western Kenya (8). Throughout the early Miocene period ( ma) apes were both abundant and diverse in eastern Africa but are very poorly known outside this region.

Recent discoveries at Loperot, including catarrhine primates, led to a revision of its mammalian fauna. Our revision of the fauna at Loperot shows an unusual taxonomic composition of the catarrhine community as well as several other unique mammalian taxa. Loperot shares two non-cercopithecoid catarrhine taxa.

Early Miocene fossils from Rusinga Island, Kenya, provide some of the best evidence for catarrhine evolution and diversification, and, together with more than eighty-five other mammalian species, form an important comparative reference for. In this chapter, I survey ideas of the concept of species, as they apply to the human evolutionary record.

I discuss the question of the meaning of a genus, concluding that all species since the separation of the human line from that of the chimpanzee (and possibly including the chimpanzee lineage as well) should be placed in a single genus, for which the prior available name is Homo.

Rusinga Island in Kenya is home to important fossil beds, including remains of the early ape Proconsul. Here the authors reconstruct the Early Miocene environment in.

Kenya - Kenya - Plant and animal life: In the highlands between elevations of 7, and 9, feet (2, and 2, metres), the characteristic landscape consists of patches of evergreen forest separated by wide expanses of short grass. Where the forest has survived human encroachment, it includes economically valuable trees such as cedar (Juniperus procera) and varieties of podo.

ABSTRACT By the Japan-Kenya Expedition, more than late Miocene vertebrate fossils were collected from the Namurungule Formation in Samburu Hills, Northern Kenya in These fossils are assigned to at least 29 taxa of which 21 are mammals, including Hominoid, Tetralophodon, two kinds ofHipparion, Brachypotherium, Kenyapotamus.

Book Description: In Kenya, cultural and natural heritage has a particular value. Its pre-historic heritage not only tells the story of man's origin and evolution but has also contributed to the understanding of the earth's history: fossils and artefacts spanning over 27 million years have been discovered and conserved by the National Museums of Kenya (NMK).
