  /AB  ABSTRACT: 
      The relation between the partial pressure of atmospheric carbon dioxide 
    (pCO sub(2)) and Paleogene climate is poorly resolved. We used stable 
    carbon isotopic values of di-unsaturated alkenones extracted from deep sea 
    cores to reconstruct pCO sub(2) from the middle Eocene to the late 
    Oligocene ([[carat]6]45 to 25 million years ago). Our results demonstrate 
    that pCO sub(2) ranged between 1000 to 1500 parts per million by volume in 
    the middle to late Eocene, then decreased in several steps during the 
    Oligocene, and reached modern levels by the latest Oligocene. The fall in 
    pCO sub(2) likely allowed for a critical expansion of ice sheets on 
    Antarctica and promoted conditions that forced the onset of terrestrial C 
    sub(4) photosynthesis.
