As part of the Sub-Sahara-Palaeogene
Project (SSPP), that is coordinated by us, fieldwork
is undertaken in order to investigate
the Eocene maar lake of Mahenge (Central Tanzania).
One result of this fieldwork is the discovery of
over 2000 vertebrate- and plant fossils. This material
is currently studied at the Natural History Museum
Berlin, at the Research Institut Senckenberg, Frankfurt
and at the University of Greifswald.
