The following book is my complete unpublished dissertation on the early Cenozoic fossil mammals of western Colorado. My research discusses the influence of a changing climate on the local mammalian... More > community in the Piceance Creek Basin of Colorado across the Paleocene and Eocene Epochs. I present evidence for a significant alteration of the mammalian fauna at the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM). The book is divided into four sections; an introduction of the Piceance Creek Basin and the regional geology of Western Colorado; stratigraphic framework and carbon isotopic results; systematic paleontology of the 149 species of mammals documented, and a faunal analysis of the mammalian community through the entire stratigraphic sequence. The book includes over 500 high quality figures of fossilized dentitions that will be useful to researchers in the identification of fossil mammal species.< Less

Among the fossilized remains of early Eocene mammals collected from the Buck Spring Quarries of Wyoming are the dentitions of several previously undescribed nyctitheriids. Comparison of this material (from the Lost Cabin Member of the Wind River Formation,late Wasatchian Land Mammal Age (LMA), Lostcabinian Land Mammal Subage (LMSA, Wa-7)) to closely related taxa requires the description of a new genus and species of nyctitheres, Acrodentis rosenorum, as well as a new species of Nyctitherium, N. krishtalkai...

The object of this book is to present in compendious form the evidence which myths and dreams supply as to primitive man’s interpretation of his own nature and of the external world, and more...

The examples are selected chiefly from barbaric races, as furnishing the nearest correspondences to the working of the mind in what may be called its “eocene” stage, but examples are also cited from civilised races, as witnessing to that continuity of ideas which is obscured by familiarity or ignored by prejudice.
Had more illustrations been drawn from sources alike prolific, the evidence would have been swollen to undue dimensions without increasing its significance; as it is, repetition has been found needful here and there, under difficulty of entirely detaching arguments advanced in the two parts of this work:
