Fossil woods from the Tertiary of Eastern India. 1
Fossil woods of Shorea, Holigarna, Cassia, Terminalia, Duabanga and Sideroxylon are described here from the Tertiary of Assam and NEFA. They were collected from the beds of Buri-Dehing River near Jaipur and Namsang River at Deomali. Most of the modern equivalents of these fossils are commonly found in the modern forests of Assam and NEFA indicating the occurrence of a somewhat similar type of forest in this region during the Tertiary (Mio-Pliocene) period.
