The purpose was to determine whether present-day grasslands are ecologically plausible Beringian relicts
The Mesopotamian Relict
Landscapes have also been receiving more attention over the last several years, with international cooperation and support for the archaeological marvels of southern Iraq growing.
gull, Larus relictus, Microsatellite, Cross-species.
Although we did not anticipate that eukaryotic DNA would amplify with our 16S rRNA specific primer set, these sequences most likely represent a combination of amplified indigenous and/or relict
Rutelisca shows a very interesting biogeographic affinity: is a relict
taxa related to the Old World genus Desmonyx Arrow, 1907, to Parastasia Westwood, 1841, to the Chilean Oryctomorphus Guerin-Meneville, 1830 and to the Mesoamerican Methapachylus (Moron, 1994; Jameson, 2000).
"These depressions - or planitiae - may be 'relict
' impact basins, left over from large collisions that took place early in Ceres' history," Marchi said.
This expansion was followed by a postglacial range breakup, retreat to moderate elevations of high mountain systems, and a formation of relict
enclaves in smaller hilly areas.
In the Iberian Peninsula, Spanish black pine forests are mainly found in the supramediterranean bioclimatic belt under humid or sub-humid climates (900-1500 m asl), although the relict
populations of the Spanish Central System on granitic rocks (Gredos and Guadarrama ranges) are also found under cold perhumid climate (Regato & al., 1991, 1992, 1995; Regato & Del Rio, 2009).
Gas injection allows BP to reach relict
and residual oil and continue production well beyond initial estimates.
Strangelove-like War Cabinet Room, and banquets in the gold vault take on extra significance in this relict

After Oscar Folsom died in a carriage accident when Frankie was 11, Cleveland oversaw the finances of Oscar's relict

It is unique for preserving various relict
flora and fauna, including the world's largest shoal of sturgeon.
He proposes, convincingly, that they are relict
species from a time when the climate was markedly different from what it is today and that they have, effectively, 'retreated' uphill, hanging on in a changed world.
The surprising faunal diversity and density indicate a uniquely rich environment, possibly an isolated refuge for relict
populations of species that have disappeared from the adjacent continental slope.
