With that said, we believe that nowadays, bivalve sclerochronochemistry could be applicable only in some sorts of archaeological, palaeoclimate
and palaeoenvironmental studies (for references see Butler et al.

The group came to this conclusion after comparing the archaeological record of Neanderthal activity in Europe with palaeoclimate
data extracted from stalagmites in two Romanian caves.

It should also be noted that recent work utilising palaeoclimate
information shows that these IPO cycles, and the multidecadal variability of dry and wet epochs associated with them, have been occurring for at least the last 1000 years (Lough 2007; Vance et al.
The taxonomic composition of the Dhok Pathan Formation fauna indicates that during the Late Miocene an arid palaeoclimate
had been established in the Siwaliks, which supported pockets of forested areas.

Based on the above discussion, the [[delta].sup.13][C.sub.org] values indicate that higher terrestrial plants are dominated by [C.sub.3] plants, suggesting a cool and humid palaeoclimate
. This agrees with the evidence of Upper Permian flora which matches with a cool, temperate climate [4, 74-77].
