Description:

Environmental and climatic evolution of the Namib Desert since the Middle Miocene: the contribution of carbon isotope ratios in ratite eggshells.

Summary / Notes:

Carbon isotope ratios of ratite eggshells were measured in samples without diagenetic alterations. Temporal evolution (Miocene to Recent) of this ratio is related to the diet of the birds, which reflects a fluctuation in the percentage of C3 and C4 plants in the Namib ecosystem. The palaeoclimatic implications are discussed.
