  • Understanding Late Devonian and Permian-Triassic Biotic and Climatic Eventsby Jeff Over; Jared Morrow; P. Wignall

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 205.00

    The Late Devonian and Permian-Triassic intervals are among the most dynamic episodes of Earth history, marked by large secular changes in continental ecosystems, dramatic fluctuations in ocean oxygenation, major phases of biotic turnover, volcanism, bolide impact events, and rapid fluctuations in stable isotope systems and sea level. This volume highlights... more...

    Wiley 2008; US$ 133.95

    During the last 10 years numerical methods have begun to dominate paleontology. These methods now reach far beyond the fields of morphological and phylogenetic analyses to embrace biostratigraphy, paleobiogeography, and paleoecology. Paleontological Data Analysis explains the key numerical techniques in paleontology, and the methodologies employed... more...

  • The Quaternary Period in the United Statesby A.R. Gillespie; S.C. Porter; B.F. Atwater
