  • Ice Age Southern Andesby C.J. Heusser

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 235.00

    The Southern Andes, stretching from the subtropics to the subantarctic, are ideally located for palaeoenvironmental research. Over the broad and continuous latitudinal extent of the cordillera (-24˚), vegetation is adjusted to climatic gradients and atmospheric circulation patterns. Opposed to the prevailing Southern Westerlies, the Southern... more...

  • Extinctions in the History of Lifeby Paul D. Taylor

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 52.00

    Topical review of the role of extinction in evolution for students and researchers. more...

  • Global Biogeographyby J.C. Briggs

    Elsevier Science 1995; US$ 72.95

    This book significantly expands the coverage of this subject given by its predecessor Biogeography and Plate Tectonics (1987). Global Biogeography traces global changes in geography and biology from the Precambrian to the Recent (with worldwide coverage in chronological order); examines the evolutionary effects of the major extinctions, and discusses... more...

  • Ice Age Extinctionby Jim Snook

    Algora Publishing 2007; US$ 32.95

    Global warming seen from the other side: by the end of the last ice age, the earth had lost most of its large animal species and most of its humans. In a novel approach the author argues that the main cause of this catastrophic extinction was a drastic reduction in atmospheric carbon dioxide, due to the long period of cold, and he backs up his theory... more...

  • The Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuegoby J. Rabassa

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 225.00

    Written by highly qualified Argentine scientists and scholars, this book focuses on the uninterrupted geological and paleontological record of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego since the Miocene-Pliocene boundary to the arrival of man and modern times. This region is an outstanding area for research, with significant interest at the international level.... more...

  • Polymerid Tribolites from the Cambrian of Northwestern Hunan, China, Two-Volume Setby S. Peng; L.E. Babcock; H. Lin

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 275.00

    China is richly endowed with Cambrian strata yielding some of the best-preserved fossils known anywhere in the world. The trilobites are most important element in the fauna, and of scientific relevance for several reasons. First, they are of regional importance in the precise correlation of strata, and are of primary use in characterising mappable... more...

  • Evolutionary Stasis and Change in the Dominican Republic Neogeneby Ross H. Nehm; Ann F. Budd

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    The richly fossiliferous Neogene stratigraphic sections of the Dominican Republic serve as one of only a few geological research systems in the world where morphological stasis and punctuated speciation have been investigated in multiple lineages. This research system provides unprecedented opportunities for comparative studies of evolutionary stasis... more...

  • Automated Stratigraphic Correlationby F.P. Agterberg

    Elsevier Science 1990; US$ 72.95

    This book provides an introduction to recent developments in automated stratigraphic correlation of fossil data, using computer programs for ranking and scaling of stratigraphic events. Mainframes or microcomputers can be used to aid the stratigrapher during data inventory for a region or time period, for construction of a biozonation based on stratigraphic... more...

  • Evolutionary Biology of Ostracodaby N. Ikeya; K. Ishizaki; T. Hanai

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 195.00

    There are many competitive works on the market concerning evolutionary biology, but this volume is quite distinctive in its idiographic aspect focusing on Ostracoda viewed from a wide range of disciplines, ages and environments. The book deals with various lines of idiographic biology and palaeontology of Ostracoda and nomothetic trials focusing strongly... more...

  • Glacigenic Sedimentsby K. Brodzikowski; A. J. van Loon

    Elsevier Science 1990; US$ 72.95

    This book aims primarily at providing those involved in fundamental or applied research in the fields of geology, geomorphology and hydrology with a systematic overview of glacigenic sediments. A generally applicable terminology is proposed which should facilitate communication between scientists from several fields. Also it should form a bridge between... more...
