  • Systematics and the Fossil Recordby Andrew B. Smith

    Wiley 2009; US$ 119.00

    This new text sets out to establish the key role played by systematics in deciphering patterns of evolution from the fossil record. It begins by considering the nature of the species in the fossil record and then outlines recent advances in the methodology used to establish phylogenetics relationships, stressing why fossil evidence can be crucial.... more...

  • Fossils at a Glanceby Clare Milsom; Sue Rigby

    Wiley 2013; US$ 51.95

    Fossils provide a powerful tool for the study of the nearly 4-billion-year history of life, and its role in the evolution of Earth systems. They also provide important data for evolutionary studies, and contribute to our understanding of the extinction of organisms and the origins of modern biodiversity. Fossils At A Glance is written for students... more...

  • The Paleobiological Revolutionby David Sepkoski; Michael Ruse

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 52.00

    Paleontology has long had a troubled relationship with evolutionary biology. Suffering from a reputation as a second-tier science and conjuring images of fossil collectors and amateurs who dig up bones, paleontology was marginalized even by Darwin himself, who worried that incompleteness in the fossil record would be used against his theory of evolution.... more...

  • Dinosaur Odysseyby Scott D. Sampson

  • Prehistoric Lifeby Bruce S. Lieberman; Roger L. Kaesler

    Wiley 2010; US$ 175.95

    Prehistoric life is the archive of evolution preserved in the fossil record.  This book focuses on the meaning and significance of that archive and is designed for introductory college science students, including non-science majors, enrolled in survey courses emphasizing paleontology, geology and biology. From the origins of animals to the evolution... more...

  • Microfacies of Carbonate Rocksby Erik Flugel

    Springer 2010; US$ 209.00

    The book provides a synthesis of the methods used in microfacies analysis, the potential of microfacies in evaluating depositional environments and diagenetic history, and the application of microfacies data in the study of carbonate hydrocarbon reservoirs and the provenance of archaeological materials. The first part of the book (Microfacies Analysis)... more...
