Geographical overview of the drainage systems of Western Asia and the Ponto-Caspian regions (Euphrates-Tigris, Araxes-Kura).
AbstractRed star (1) indicates the position of the Ҫevırme locality. The red circle shows the possible extension of palaeolake system of the Armenian Highland. The arrows show the late distribution of the recorded fossil Capoeta species into the different water basins due to the tectonic disruption of the Lake system during the Pliocene uplift period. The two already known late Miocene fossil sites Kisatibi (red star 2) and Jradzor (red star 3) are included as well. Map data: Fig 2 is redrawn and modified from U. S. Geological Survey CC BY 4.0.</p
