Specimens assigned to phyllostomine genera are known from Mid-Miocene deposits in Colombia, northern South America (Savage,Czaplewski, ). The availability of fossil specimens, in Cited by:   Abstract. This new theory about the origin of blood-feeding in bats is based on four main premises: (1) that the diets and feeding behaviour of some bats have always varied; (2) that the Miocene mammal fauna of South America included many large (≥ 2 kg body mass) forms; (3) that wounds offered protovampaire bats the opportunity to feed on blood; and (4) that sharp, strong upper incisor teeth.

The first fossil phyllostomatid, Notonycteris is from the late Miocene (Savage, ).

Although fossils of phyUostomatid bats have not been found in earlier geological strata, workers have indi- cated that the lines that gave rise to the Phyllostomat- idae were diverged from the vespertilionid stock at least in the Eocene and probably earlier.

However, the fossil record of bats is commonly believed to be very poor. Quantitative analyses of this record have rarely been attempted, so it has been. Phyllostomidae is a large (> species), diverse clade of Neotropical bats. Different species in this family feed on blood, insects, vertebrates, nectar, pollen, and fruits.

Methods: Emballonurid bats constitutes an important element of the bat fauna in Colombia. Herein, museum voucher specimens were used as primary source to generate a checklist of emballonurid bats from Colombia.

In addition, selected museum voucher. For bats, a few clades represent disproportionate amounts of the ecological diversity of the entire order (Simmons & Conway ).

The best example is of the New World bat family Phyllostomidae. The oldest known fossils from this family are from the Miocene of Colombia suggesting a tropical origin (Savage ; Czaplewski ; Jones et al. Reprinted from BULLETIN OF TH E SOUTHERN CALIFORN IA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES Vol.

Noted for slowness of movement, they spend most of their lives hanging upside down in the trees of the tropical rain forests of South America and Central America.

They are considered to be most closely related to anteaters, together making up the xenarthran order Pilosa. There are six extant. The oldest known fossils of this family are from the Miocene of Colombia, suggesting a tropical origin to the family.

This group comprises 55 genera and species [ 28 ] that exhibit strong latitudinal diversity gradients [ 29 – 32 ], which determines much of the gradient for all bats in the New World (figure 2). Between June 28 and July 1,while conducting studies on the karyotypes of phyllostomatid bats, the authors collected three specimens of Vampyressa brocki in mature tropical rainforest at Leticia, Amazonas.

NASA's CALIPSO satellite has measured the amount of dust transported by wind from the Sahara to the Amazon: an average million tons of dust are windblown out of the Sahara each year, at 15 degrees west longitude, across 1, miles (2, km) over the Atlantic Ocean (some dust falls into the Atlantic), then at 35 degrees West longitude at.

The best studied borhyaenids are the early Miocene taxa, particularly from fossil sites in the southernmost part of Patagonia. Stenoderma rufum, one of the least known neotropical stenodermine bats (Jones et al, ), is similar to mainland South American phyllo- stomatids {Carollia, Artibeus, and Desmodus) but differs from other Puerto Rican phyllostomatid bats {A.

The Miocene (/ ˈ m aɪ. ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ m aɪ. oʊ-/ MY-ə-seen, MY-oh-) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about (Ma). The Miocene was named by Charles Lyell; its name comes from the Greek words μείων (meiōn, "less") and καινός (kainos, "new") and means "less recent" because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene.

Sturnira is the most speciose genus of New World leaf-nosed bats (Phyllostomidae).We name Sturnira adrianae, new taxon is born polytypic, divided into a larger subspecies (S. adrianae) widespread in the mountains of northern and western Venezuela, and northern Colombia, and a smaller subspecies (S.

caripana) endemic to the mountains of northeastern Venezuela. Fossils of family Phyllostomidae date back to the Miocene in Colombia and the Pleistocene in North, Central and South America. This family's debated relationship dates back towhen genus Phyllostomus, the first official grouping of phyllostomid bats, became recognized.

The first true birds evolved during the late Jurassic period, and went on to become one of the most successful and diverse branches of vertebrate life on earth.

In this slideshow, you'll find pictures and detailed profiles of over 50 prehistoric and recently extinct birds, ranging from Archaeopteryx to the Passenger Pigeon. The La Venta Fauna, of Colombia's Magdalena River valley, is a singularly important record of land vertebrates in the Neogene tropical realm of South Africa.

The Magdalena drains into the Atlantic Ocean within five degrees of the equator. It is thus within the present tropical zone, as it was in the Miocene. Biogeography of the bats of South America.
