Tertiary Mammal Bearing Beds in the Upper Cuyama Drainage Basin, California


Gazin, Charles Lewis (1928) Tertiary Mammal Bearing Beds in the Upper Cuyama Drainage Basin, California. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/0AN6-V495.


The discovery of Tertiary mammalian remains in the vicinity of Apache Canyon, in the upper Cuyama drainage basin, Ventura County, California, was made by Mr. John B. Stevens, Geologist of the Associated Oil Company. Further collecting in this region has furnished a fauna of considerable stratigraphic and biologic significance. A study of the geologic features of the area and of the mammalian collection was undertaken primarily with a view to establishing the position and relationships of the assemblage in the sequence of Tertiary faunas known from the Pacific Coast and Great Basin provinces. Investigation of the problem was conducted under the direction of Dr. Chester Stock.
