Fossil Records of Palms of the Lunpola Basin, central Tibetan Plateau (2019)


This dataset is derived from the paper: Su, T. et al. (2019). No high tibetan plateau until the Neogene. Science Advances, 5(3), eaav2189. doi:10.1126/sciadv.aav2189

Researchers discovered well-preserved palm fossil leaves from the Lunpola Basin (32.033°N, 89.767°E), central Tibetan Plateau at a present elevation of 4655 m in 2016. Researchers compared the newly discovered fossil with those present fossil that are most similar, find that there is no similar leaves among present fossil, therefore, researchers proposed the new species S. tibetensis T. Su et Z.K. Zhou sp. nov. Using the climate model, combined with the research of the fossil, researchers rebuilt the paleoelevation of the central Tibetan Plateau, it shows that a high plateau cannot have existed in the core of Tibet in the Paleogene.

The data contains the following tables:

1) Table S1. Fossil records of palms around the world.

2) Table S2. Morphological comparisons between fossils from Lunpola Basin and modern palm genera.

3) Table S3. Climate ranges of 12 living genera that show the closest morphological similarity to S. tibetensis T. Su et Z.K. Zhou sp. nov.

This dataset also contains the figures in the supplementary material in the article.
