An update on the flora of the Kinney Quarry of central New Mexico (Upper Pennsylvanian), its preservational and environmental significance

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The flora of the Kinney Brick Pit, Missourian age, central New Mexico, is revised. Total species diversity, estimated conservatively, is about 30. The flora is dominated by conifers and pteridosperms, and shows a preservational bias in favor of robust remains. Its varied composition reflects the various different habitats in the vicinity of the lagoonal (?) depositional environment. The various taxa identified are almost entirely the same as those known from Lower Rotliegend (Autunian) floras in Europe (Annularia spicata megafloral Zone).
