... American solitary and fossorial rodent that has ecomorphofunctional adaptations for living in saline environments and constructs its burrow in nebkhas with halophyte shrubs. The purpose of this work is to identify the ichnologic signatures of T. barrerae burrow systems and to provide combined ichnologic...

.... That is, they are not continuous foredunes, but rather either discrete nebkha, or discontinuous hummocky foredune zones. The fact that they constitute the only dune type found along many arctic shorelines is primarily linked to environmental conditions. Low temperatures, even during the brief summers, do not favour...

...M. CRISTINA CARDONATTO; RICARDO NESTOR MELCHOR ABSTRACT This is a neoichnologic study of Microcavia australis (Rodentia: Caviidae) burrow systems from two environments of the semiarid region of central Argentina, with the main purpose of contributing to the interpretation of fossil tetrapod burrows...

... environment of the Muth Formation. The siliciclastic domal stromatolites probably formed in a shallow subtidal to intertidal environment with high hydraulic energy, where periods of high sedimentation rates are interrupted by periods of low or zero sedimentation. Microbial gas pits and microbial gas domes...

..., where they often provide a distinctive environment that provides habitats for endemic and rare or threatened species. In both coastal and inland settings, dune migration and sand encroachment may impact neighboring ecosystems and resources, as well as infrastructure. Aeolian processes, involving...

... of littoral sediment. From a geographical perspective, these islands are in arid or semiarid environments with unidirectional or strongly asymmetrical transport-capable winds (i.e., trade winds). The age of the islands increases eastward, with the oldest being Lanzarote and Fuerteventura (15–20 My...

... of unconsolidated Holocene carbonates. It has the most complete Quaternary outcrop sequence in the region and the lowest exposed unit, a coralline limestone, had not been recorded previously. The Pleistocene deposits accumulated partly in a shallow-marine environment and partly under eolian conditions. The Marawah...

... lagoon with its associated muddy embayment and sebkha/nebkha supratidal flats is directly linked to the development and progradation with time of the barrier and back-barrier system. These low-energy environments have also shifted southwards during the rapid infill of the lagoonal domain. This updated...
