Indian Vertebrate Paleontology

Recommended Posts

I noticed that in the wide world of vertebrate paleontology, not a lot of attention is given to India, despite some rather good Mesozoic (notably Triassic) vertebrate sites. I thought it would be nice to share this with the other TFF members, to promote a bit the advances in Indian vertebrate paleo: https://www.researchgate.net/project/Mesozoic-Microvertebrates

Some of the papers have the full text available.

What do you people think?

Not a lot of attention probably because not a lot of exciting finds have come from there.  Thanks for the link interested in seeing what their triassic looks like.

@Troodon I agree with you there - always find it interesting to learn about fossils from more "obscure" (paleontologically speaking) countries like Venezuela, Denmark or India :)

Okay...I filled in a FEW of the holes in the section for India...but there are still a lot to go!  My fingers are getting tired from typing.

There have been some finds and papers on the subject of early whales (Eocene stuff) from India.  There's a good mainstream book on recent advances in the understanding of the earliest whales (Thewissen, 2014) with some of the action taking place there.  You can find some technical articles using "Thewissen" as a keyword.

 

Thewissen, J.G.M.  2014.

Just found this 1999 paper relating to the Indian Triassic vertebrate fauna :) : Middle_Triassic_vertebrates_of_India.pdf
