Evolutionary Stasis and Change in the Dominican Republic by Ross H. Nehm, Ann F. Budd

By Ross H. Nehm, Ann F. Budd

Science is supposedly eventually limited via the character of the actual international, which means that alterations in medical tools and perform are meant to be clear of people with much less application and towards those who are extra revealing, worthy, and efficient of insights into the character of that global. In perform, despite the fact that, technological know-how isn't any much less liable to fads, tradition shifts, and pendulum swings than the other realm of human activity. this can be a particularly vital characteristic of technological know-how to bear in mind within the current weather of shrinking executive investment (at least in prop- tion to the call for) and the ensuing susceptibility of person scientists and whole disciplines to being motivated by means of the altering priorities of investment organizations (even if, as such corporations retain, these priorities come eventually “from the c- munity”). the current quantity is in different vital respects a testimonial to either the threats and possibilities that such medical tradition swings pose, either for the person researcher and a much broader box. while medical learn within the Dominican Republic Neogene begun greater than a century in the past, paleontology was once an primarily descriptive self-discipline, centred generally on discovering, describing, and documenting the taxa represented within the fossil checklist, and (especially in invertebrate paleontology) on utilizing those taxa for bi- tratigraphic correlation. regardless of the winning integration of paleontology into the trendy Evolutionary Synthesis in the course of the 20 th century (Simpson, 1944, 1953; Jepsen et al.

A forced regression may have resulted from the combination of falling sea level from development of Northern Hemisphere glaciation and regrowth of the Antarctic ice sheet, coupled with the onset of uplift of the Cordillera Central and Cibao Basin (Lewis and Draper, 1990). It is interesting to note that a major pulse of progradation in the Bahamas platform also occurred at this same time, but in that example, the driving force was entirely a lowering of sea level. It is also worth noting that deposits of the Mao Formation show a mixture of both deep water and shallow water ostracode species, more so than what is found in the underlying Gurabo Formation (van den Bold, 1988).
