  • The Piltdown Forgeryby J. S. Weiner; Chris Stringer

    Oxford University Press 2003; US$ 18.99

    On 21 November 1953, one of the most fascinating puzzles in science was finally solved.

Their conclusion was stunning: the remains, and the accompanying... more...

  • "T. rex" and the Crater of Doomby Walter Alvarez; Carl Zimmer

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 18.95

    Sixty-five million years ago, a comet or asteroid larger than Mt. Everest slammed into the Earth, causing an explosion equivalent to the detonation of a hundred million hydrogen bombs. Vaporized impactor and debris from the impact site were blasted out through the atmosphere, falling back to Earth all around the globe. Terrible environmental disasters... more...

  • High-Resolution Approaches in Stratigraphic Paleontologyby P.J. Harries

    Springer 2003; US$ 289.00

    This volume delves into a spectrum of theoretical as well as applied aspects of high-resolution stratigraphic approaches in paleontology. It explores how increasingly detailed knowledge of the fossil record can enhance our understanding of the evolution of life on Earth and also allows geoscientists to address a broad range of important evolutionary... more...

  • Recent Vertebrate Carcasses and Their Paleobiological Implicationsby Johannes Weigelt; Judith Schaefer

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 31.00

    The first English translation of Johannes Weigelt's 1927 classic makes available the seminal work in taphonomy, the study of how organisms die, decay, become entombed in sediments, and fossilize over time. Weigelt emphasized the importance of empirical work and made extensive observations of modern carcasses on the Texas Gulf Coast. He applied the... more...

  • When the Invasion of Land Failedby George R. Jr. McGhee

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 44.99

    The invasion of land by ocean-dwelling plants and animals was one of the most revolutionary events in the evolution of life on Earth, yet the animal invasion almost failed—twice—because of the twin mass extinctions of the Late Devonian Epoch. Some 359 to 375 million years ago, these catastrophic events dealt our ancestors a blow that almost drove... more...

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    The Qattara Depression is part of the Northwestern Desert in Egypt and is home to the second lowest point in Africa at -133 meters below sea level. Therefore, before any projects can be carried out in this area, we must first understand the geology of the land. The present study deals with the high-resolution sequence stratigraphic analysis of the... more...

  • Zooarchaeology and Modern Human Originsby Jamie L. Clark; John D. Speth

    Springer 2013; US$ 139.00

    Recent genetic data showing that Neanderthals interbred with modern humans have made it clear that deeper insight into the behavioral differences between these populations will be critical to understanding the rapid spread of modern humans and the demise of the Neanderthals. This volume, which brings together scholars who have worked with faunal assemblages... more...
