Emergence of Isthmus of Panama changes ocean circulation patterns & coincides with formation of an Arctic ice cap.
Plate tectonic interactions result in uplift of Sierra Nevada, formation of Cascade Range, & onset of strike-slip faulting on San Andreas Fault. In Europe, Alps continue to rise.
global climates become cooler & drier.

Camels & horses are abundant throughout North America. Ground sloths also evolve & Great American interchange between South & North America begins.
Primates continue to evolve, & australopithecines, antecedents to Homo sapiens,develop late in Pliocene in Africa.
In North America, rhinoceroses & ordeodonts become extinct.
