    It was first described by Alexander Wetmore in the Journal of Paleontology in May In his paper, Wetmore erected the Anatidae subfamily Eonessinae, and placed Eonessa as the oldest Anatidae genus in the fossil record. This placement was possibly due to a resemblance to the modern ruddy duck (Oxyura jamaicensis), although Wetmore did not explain his taxonomic placement in the describing : incertae sedis.

Olson and Alan Feduccia Introduction The waterfowl (Anseriformes) are among the best known of all groups of birds. Presbyornis was one of the first anseriforms. Because of its long legs and neck, Presbyornis was initially mistaken for a flamingo, but it was reclassified as an anseriform when the duck-like anatomy of its skull and bill was : Aves.

Its broad, flat bill was used to filter food (small plants and animals) from the water, in the manner of today's dabbling ducks. The fossil record includes many complete skeletons from Green River Formation Class: Aves.

Ra­mainvil­lia and Cygnopterus fos­sils have been dated from the early Oligocene in France and Bel­guim. From France, Anas blan­chardi has been dated to the Miocene, and Den­drochen and Mer­gus are known from the early and mid­dle Miocene re­spec­tively.

Presbyornis pervetus (Wetmore ; Olson and Feduccia ; earliest Eocene, 62 mya) is one of the first of the clade Anseriformes (ducks, geese and kin). It is known from scattered bones and was originally considered a flamingo relative, due to its long legs. The duck-like skull was found later.

Date: Integrated injection logic (IIL, I2L, or I2L) is a class of digital circuits built with multiple collector bipolar junction transistors (BJT).

When introduced it had speed comparable to TTL yet was almost as low power as CMOS, making it ideal for use in VLSI (and larger) integrated circuits. Although the logic voltage levels are very close (High: V, Low: V), I2L has high noise immunity.
