    • In southern Africa, ratite eggshell fragments have been used to broadly date surface fossils from the Neogene and Quaternary where associated archaeology may be absent. It is based on the density and size of the pores, which can further give insights as to the climate at the time of deposition (e.g. tiny, widely dispersed pores are typical of arid climate species).
