Full description

This dataset contains a large (5000+ records) collection of vertebrate occurrences in Australian land mammal age. Records include specimen, image, dimension, location and geochemical data.

The Atlas of Prehistoric Australia is a storehouse of information on the occurrences of organisms through time and space. It is the deep-time add-on to the ALA, and emphasises the continuum between past and present, and the valuable role that historical data on taxonomy, ecology and environment can play in improving our understanding of Australia’s unique biota.

The Database of Australasian Vertebrate Occurrences (DAVO) is a terrestrial, Cenozoic dataset collated in the 2000s by Dirk Megirian and Gavin Prideaux to develop the Australian Land Mammal Age biochronological scheme (Megirian et al. 2010, Paleobiology), primarily via an exhaustive literature review. Mammals were the main focus of the dataset, but it includes occurrence data for other vertebrates and terrestrial molluscs found in association with vertebrate fossils.
