Description:

Fossil evidence for perennial lake conditions during the Holocene at Etosha Pan, Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

Etosha Pan, a large (4760 km2), endorheic depression situated in north-central Namibia, has been claimed to be essentially a wind-deflated landform. The pan was assumed by some researchers to have developed under persistent semi-arid conditions, which were alleged to have prevailed in the region for at least the last 140 000 years. Recent field evidence points to the contrary. Thisrnevidence includes a significant number of fossils belonging to, amongst others, semiaquatic antelopes such as sitatunga, which are diagnostically indicative of perennial lake conditions in the area. These species have previously never been reported from Etosha National Park, either as fossils or extant. Here we indicate the significance of these findings and their implications for the palaeo-environment of the Etosha region.
