Description

Excerpt from The Lower Eocene Floras of Southeastern North America The name Eocene first appears in American literature in connection with American de posits ih Lea's Contributions to geology, published in 1833, where it is applied to the classic fossiliferous outcrop at Claiborne Land ing, Ala. My own studies, the results of which are here presented, arose from the necessity of carrying the correlation of the Tertiary formations across the States of Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Arkansas, and Louisiana, where the earlier Eocene (midway and Wilcox), because of the conditions of sedimentation, in places lacks the succession of marine faunas developed in the Alabama region.
