Repetitive mammalian dwarfing during ancient greenhouse warming events
http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/3/e1601430.full
"Abrupt perturbations of the global carbon cycle during the early Eocene are associated with rapid global warming events, which are analogous in many ways to present greenhouse warming. Mammal dwarfing has been observed, along with other changes in community structure, during the largest of these ancient global warming events, known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum"
