      Book Description: Birds of Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçaois the essential guide for anyone traveling to those showcases the more than species seen on Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao and provides descriptions of and directions to the best places to bird, from the famous white sand beaches to hidden watering holes to the majestic national parks. Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao (ABC Islands) are located at the southern margin of the Caribbean Plate, just north of South America. Little is known of the arachnid fauna of these islands, and the only work on spiders was published over a century ago. Here we provide a list of arachnids opportunistically collected from the islands, including Klein Bonaire and Klein Curaçao, over approximately 2.

      Megalomys curazensis is a species of rodent from the Late Pleistocene (, to , years ago) of the island of Curaçao, off northwestern Venezuela. It is a member of the genus Megalomys, which also includes species from other islands of the Lesser Antilles. It is known from abundant but fragmentary material found throughout the island. References. Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao consist of five islands that make up the Leeward Islands of the Dutch Antilles off of the northern coast of South America, often referred to as the ABCs. Because of location, the islands share similar characteristics of climate, geology, geomorphology, and history, though each bears a variation of these characteristics. These largely limestone islands are part of.

        These faults do not affect the Quaternary reef terraces (Fig. 5) but a similar, north-striking fault was observed deforming the Seroe Domi Formation west of Willemstad (de Buisonjé, ). At Curaçao, as in Aruba and Bonaire, the Neogene Seroe Domi Formation is found mainly along the leeward, or wind-protected, side of the island (Fig. 5).

[P H de Buisonjé] -- For review see: Amigoe di Curaçao ( Our new observations – that include detailed relationships between striated fault planes, paleostress tensors, and bedding planes – show that prominent bedding dips of Neogene limestone on Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao were produced by regional tectonic shortening across the entire Leeward Antilles ridge rather than by localized, syndepositional effects as proposed by previous by:   The Neogene–Quaternary carbonate cover of Bonaire is similar to that of Aruba and Curaçao and includes the Neogene Seroe Domi Formation along with overlying Pleistocene depositional terraces.

A tremendous flow of lava during the Upper-Cretaceous period arose from the sea floor, forming the Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. For many years tectonic forces compressed and folded the rock, causing underwater igneous and sedimentary formations to rise from the sea.

In subsequent years the islands were carved by natural erosion.
