    Manuel A. Iturralde-Vinent (born Cienfuegos, 10 July ), is a Cuban geologist and paleontologist and former deputy director of the Cuban National Natural History Museum in Havana. He is a scientific personality in Cuba and the Caribbean and President of the Cuban Geological Society for He has conducted several studies on the Cuban and Caribbean . 1. Introduction. Ever since the beginning of naturalist exploration, insular communities have played an important role in the development of ecological and evolutionary theories [1,2].The Caribbean islands are no exception and have experienced a series of spectacular adaptive radiations within terrestrial lizards, snakes, sloths, primates and rodents [3,4].

    Paleogeography - Paleogeography - Mapping past geographic features: Paleogeographic features include mountain ranges, lowlands, shallow seas, and the deep ocean basins. Some paleogeographic features change very slowly and are easy to map. Others change very rapidly, so that any paleogeographic mapping is, at best, an approximation. The two major . This "is the first international book published on the petroleum geology and hydrocarbon potential of Colombia's Caribbean Margin. This volume consists of 27 multidisciplinary papers which include a wide range of geological and geophysical topics, such as geochemistry and petroleum systems, earthquake seismology and tomography, seismic stratigraphy and sedimentology, oil .

    The particularly significant borders of the Bahama Block are the Santaren Channel on the west, and the tongue of the ocean on the east The general position of this region in relation to the Florida coast is shown on figure 2. A number of scientists have visited this region, including, however, a relatively small number of geologists. Thus, researchers, practitioners, and organizations must collaborate to create a unified Caribbean psychology that meets both the shared and disparate needs of those who live in the region and in the diaspora. This book brings together scholars from diverse fields, many of whom come from Caribbean backgrounds.

This book collects, organizes, and presents as many of these scholarly publications as possible to aid in the teaching, study, and further scholarship of the geography of this area.

Restoration of Yucatán rotation necessitates the presence of a paleogeography different from the current distribution of the Greater and Lesser Antilles.

During emplacement of the Caribbean plate region, four magmatic belts with distinct ages and different geochemical characteristics are recorded by exposures on islands of the Antilles. Caribbean, these ethno-local identities which provide deep anchorage in survival and pride are threatened in unprecedented ways.

More Caribbean persons live outside the region than ever before and on the anvil of their ongoing interactions between the insular habitats and the overseas metropolitan Caribbean bridgeheads, new adaptive.

"This paper presents a series of detailed paleogeographical analyses of the Caribbean region, beginning with the opening of the Caribbean basin in the Middle Jurassic and running to the end of the Middle Miocene.

Together with a revision of Caribbean paleogeography, we compile the colonization times, in situ speciation, and ancestral areas of Caribbean endemic lineages. We model species richness differences among endemic lineages as a function of their colonization time in the Caribbean, resulting in an estimation of the time-for-speciation effect.

Book Description. This anthology represents important and original directions in the study of Caribbean migration. It takes a comparative perspective on the Caribbean people's migratory experiences to North America, Europe, and within the Caribbean.

Using a multi-disciplinary approach, the book discusses: * the causes of migration. The Caribbean: A History of the Region and Its Peoples - Kindle edition by Palmié, Stephan, Scarano, Francisco A.

Sedimentary basins in the Caribbean and adjacent areas are assessed in terms of the plate‐tectonic and paleogeographic history of the regions. Primary phases of development were rifting and passive margin development during Jurassic‐Cretaceous drift of North from South America; and the Late Cretaceous to Recent relative eastwards migration of the Caribbean Plate.

In the Caribbean region, complex progression of the three deformation stages occurs from west to east. The offshore Guajira peninsula and Leeward Antilles islands (Caribbean arc terrane) start to deform by right-lateral strike-slip motion (Fault Family 1), underthrusting of the Caribbean plate (Fault Family 6) and rifting (Fault Families 4 and 5).

Caribbean literature, literary works of the Caribbean area written in Spanish, French, or literature of the Caribbean has no indigenous tradition. The pre-Columbian American Indians left few rock carvings or inscriptions (petroglyphs), and their oral traditions did not survive 16th-century Spanish colonization.
