that phenomena other than floral change
may be involved in the late Miocene global
vegetation change, such as monsoonal
dynamics or unnamed "other factors". Cit-
ing evidence from Spain and Pakistan, they
do not believe that there is necessarily a
synchronicity or a causal link between fau-
nal and vegetation change in the late
Miocene epoch. However, on the contrary,
it seems highly unlikely that a vegetation
change on the scale documented1
would be
uncorrelated with faunal change.
Widespread faunal change in the late
Miocene epoch was recognized7,10­12
before the carbon-isotope shift was identi-
