Abaxial cuticle of Platanus neptuni showing anomocytic stomata and glandular trichomes of the abaxial leaf epidermis, Schleenhain (SC) open-cast mine, Saxony, Germany, earliest Oligocene (Rupelian) (Roth-Nebelsick et al. 2014.)

Results for CO2 obtained in this study, plotted as red asterisks against age together with other proxy data. The sites are indicated together with the data points. The horizontal line marks the age range for each site, and the vertical line marks the total CO2 interval that resulted from systematic parameter variation. (Roth-Nebelsick et al. 2014.)
