Project EVEPRIMASIA – Evolutionäre Ökologie von fossilen Anthropoiden Primaten in Südostasien

Basic data

Acronym:
EVEPRIMASIA
Title:
Evolutionäre Ökologie von fossilen Anthropoiden Primaten in Südostasien
Duration:
15/10/2018 to 31/08/2022
Abstract / short description:
This project aims at characterizing the paleoecology and paleoenvironments of the Cenozoic faunas of Myanmar by using combined approaches of carbon and oxygen isotope biogeochemistry and 3D dental microwear texture analyses on mammalian taxa. It will focus on the world-famous primate-bearing faunas of the Pondaung and Irrawaddy Formations, which offer the best potential owing to their rich mammalian fossil record and the most challenging questions regarding the evolution of primates in the Central Basin of Myanmar during the Cenozoic, the evolution of these fossil primates being considered as tightly linked to
that of their environments.
