.svg 50-state Location Map, DOT errors[edit]

(border PROBLEM on all maps, 1 CENTER point is accurate !)...Please help put this notice to the proper "HELP LOCATION". The locator DOTs used in the Geobox, end up in the wrong locations,...see: Talk:Four Corners Monument, Talk:Flaming Gorge Dam, Talk:Dendora Valley, etc. ..I discovered this trying to place the DOT on "USA Arizona location map.svg" for Aravaipa Creek... I was forced to use "Arizona Locator Map.PNG... the problem is also discussed with both maps on Talk:Aravaipa Creek.

The first USER, deflected my comments, and no others want or care to assist in this 50-state PROBLEM,... With adding all GEO coordinates, there must be 100's of articles in various states with this MISS-Located DOT....

Please just REPOST this, instead of telling me where to put this NOTICE.

Family tree of Artiodactyls[edit]

The Family tree of the Artiodactyls. The Aritodactyls are the Even-toed ungulates, the pig, deer, goat, sheep, and cattle. One determinanant of the relationships in the family tree is by examining peptides, through sequence analysis.

This sequencing was done in the mid to late 1900's.

The ancient Egyptian papyrus-stem is one of the oldest language hieroglyphs from Ancient Egypt. Along with the hieroglyph for the Papyrus clump, a symbol of the Nile god Hapy, it is one of the foundation hieroglyphs at the core of the history of Ancient Egypt. The papyrus stalk, (or stem) was incorporated into designs of columns on buildings, also facades, and is also in the iconographic art portrayed in Ancient Egyptian decorated scenes.

The Bull Palette is an ancient Egyptian palette in the corpus of iconographic cosmetic palettes that focus on topics from the the Late Predynastic Period.

Some of the various palettes in the corpus, Narmer Palette, Libyan Palette, Hunters Palette, Min Palette, etc contain forerunner iconography, or actual hieroglyphs of the Egyptian hieroglyph language.

The reverse of the Bull Palette has icography that became hieroglyphs for the: clenched fist[1], 5 standards[2] surmounted by animals, being represented by two crocodiles-(pre-Sobek), an owl, the jackal, and the thuderbolt of Min–symbol.

A fossil trackway of the Protichnites ichnogenus.

A fossil trackway is a type of fossil impression, a trackway made by a once living organism, usually by its feet. The majority of known fossil trackways are made by fossil dinosauria, or tetrapods, or bipeds. However other animal species also make trackways, for example ocean bottom-dwelling creatures.

An example of a water genus is the Sea scorpion genus Hibbertopterus.

The majority of fossil trackways will be foot impressions on land, or subsurface water, but other types of creatures will leave their distinctive species impressions. Examples of creatures supported, or partially supported, in a water environment are known. The fossil "millipede-type" genus Arthropleura left its multilegged/feet trackways on land.

Notable trackways[edit]

The foremost example of the human species trackway, is the 3.7 mya Laetoli footprints of Tanzania. The trackway is now in preservetion under a protective layer of earth.[1]

Tetrapod trackways[edit]

The earliest land creatures, (actually land-marshland) left some of the first trackways.

Dinosaur trackways[edit]

Dinosaurs lived on the continents when the plant grasses had not evolved-(the "Age of the Grasses" evolved with the "Age of the Mammals"); the dinosaurs lived from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous and left their trackways, both the plant-eaters and the meat-eaters in various layers of mud, sand, etc later to become stone.

Central North America was one notable trackway location because of the Interior Seaway, but all of North America, and regions of South America left fossil trackway layers.

With scientific analysis, dinosaur specialists are now analyzing tracks for the walking-speeds, or sprint-running speeds for all categories of dinosaurs, even to the large plant eaters, but especially the faster 3-toed meat hunters. Evidence of herding, as well as pack hunting are also being investigated.

Dinosaur trackways in Africa[edit]

An example trackway from Africa is a trackway in 140 ma rose-colored sandstone of Chewore Area, Lower Zimbabwe Rift Valley.[2]The small footprint size, with both manus and pes implies that it is a trackway of a juvenile, a probable carnosaur.

Dinosaur trackways in the Americas[edit]

The western regions of North America, and sometimes the western border of the Interior Seaway are common for dinosaur trackways. Wyoming has dinosaur trackways from the late cretaceous, 65 ma.[3] (A model example of this 3-toed Wyoming trackway was made for presentation.)[4]

Dinosaur trackways in Asia and Europe[edit]

North America trackways[edit]

The Great Plains has trackway sites in the north from Nebraska to Montana, USA. Some notable areas have numerous tracks in advanced states of erosion that extend for miles with breaks in between intersecting drainage areas, the trackways continuing on the opposite sides of the drainages.

Mammal trackways[edit]

Mammal trackways are one of the least common trackways, and are in the 'Age of the Grasses', 'Age of the Mammals'. Mammals were not often in mud, or riverine environments, more often in the forestlands, or grasslands. Thus the earlier tetrapods or proto-tetrapods would yield the most fossil trackways, from these 4-footed creatures. The Walchia forest of Brule, Nova Scotia has an example of an in situ Walchia forest, and tetrapod trackways that extended over some period of time through the forest area.

A list of tree species common to Cuba and Florida.

The general problem of the Florida Peninsula, Cuba, and the Caribbean, as well as the Florida Keys, population ranges of selected species would expect obvious commonalities of the three regions. Cuba with its mountains could explain some species being able to come from regions of North America; Florida with its low altitude and Caribbean climate and influence, would expect a high proportion of Caribbean species.

Rationale for the biome similarities of Cuba and Florida[edit]

The great size of Cuba, as well as its altitudinal variations would imply a large species diversity, and possible refugiums for species through changes in geologic eras. Likewise, the great width of Florida, as well as its extended north-south length, could imply diversities from North American-to-Caribbean species, for the variations of smaller localized regions tending to keep species ranges successful over timeperiod changes.

The alphabetical list of trees, genus-species[edit]













Specifics of selected tree species[edit]

Though Cuba has pine trees, as does Floride, no pine species are highly common to both.

Game piece (hieroglyph), also a Token, or the general term for any gaming-gambling piece, Draughtsman is an ancient hieroglyph. Gaming pieces were certainly required in predynastic times, as the cultural creation of games and entertainment has a long history in most cultures. An ivory-piece lion is known from the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt.

Use of the "game piece" hieroglyph[edit]

To Dance"
[of the god]
(2 plurals, 1 chick, 2 tokens)
in hieroglyphs

The basic word for 'Game piece' or 'draughtsman' is "ab". By implication, people on a flat arena were moving like "pieces"-(from a distance), and numerous varieties of the word 'to dance' include varieties using the "Game piece", as a determinative; two examples are shown: the word 'draughtsman', and 'to dance'-(the plural of "ab", "abU"-(U being the language plural-but also "the bird chick"-hieroglyph in Ancient Egypt).

Iconographic use[edit]

Gamepiece "tokens"-(common) and a Senet gameboard.

The most common use of the "Gaming piece" as an artefact of Ancient Egypt, would be the use with the game of Senet. The Senet game was often put into tombs and grave sites, as part of the grave goods; the games were part of the pastimes for the afterlife, including any other common 'hobbies' of the deceased–(for example hunting ducks at the marsh using a throwstick). Since board games represent the common man's activities, the Senet game has numerous examples from Ancient Egypt; this also includes the reliefs shown on temple walls, of individuals enjoying their activities in the afterlife.
