Paleontology

  • Unboundby Richard L Currier

    Arcade Publishing 2015; US$ 27.99

    Although we usually think of technology as something unique to modern times, our ancestors began to create the first technologies millions of years ago in the form of prehistoric tools and weapons. Over time, eight key technologies gradually freed us from the limitations of our animal origins. The fabrication of weapons, the mastery of fire, and... more...

  • Hell Creek, Montanaby Lowell Dingus

    St. Martin's Press 2015; US$ 8.99

    Hell Creek, Montana, is one of the most windswept, hardscrabble locales in the American West-a quiet town of ranchers, farmers, and others who seek the beauty of the open spaces. It is also the unlikely setting of some of the most fascinating events in the history of the United States and North America. From the first-ever discovery of a Tyrannosaurus... more...

  • Evolution of the Rodents: Volume 5by Philip G. Cox; Lionel Hautier

    Cambridge University Press 2015; US$ 96.00

    A valuable resource for the latest research on rodents, highlighting links across palaeontology, developmental biology, functional morphology, phylogenetics and biomechanics. more...

  • Dinosaur Footprints and Trackways of La Riojaby Félix Pérez-Lorente

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 84.99

    During the Early Cretaceous, lakes, meandering streams, and flood plains covered the region where the current foothills of Rioja now exist. Today the area is known for its wine and for the dozens of sites where footprints and trackways of dinosaurs, amphibians, and even pterosaurs can be seen. The dinosaurs that lived here 120 million years ago left... more...

  • The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossackby Ian Tattersall

    St. Martin's Press 2015; US$ 18.99

    In his new book The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossack, human paleoanthropologist Ian Tattersall argues that a long tradition of "human exceptionalism" in paleoanthropology has distorted the picture of human evolution. Drawing partly on his own career--from young scientist in awe of his elders to crotchety elder statesman--Tattersall offers an... more...

  • The White River Badlandsby Rachel C. Benton; Jr. Dennis O. Terry; Emmett Evanoff; Hugh Gregory McDonald

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 44.99

    The forbidding Big Badlands in Western South Dakota contain the richest fossil beds in the world. Even today these rocks continue to yield new specimens brought to light by snowmelt and rain washing away soft rock deposited on a floodplain long ago. The quality and quantity of the fossils are superb: most of the species to be found there are known... more...

  • Soilsby Randall Schaetzl; Michael L. Thompson

    Cambridge University Press 2015; US$ 88.00

    This expanded, fully updated second edition of the leading textbook in pedology and soil geomorphology is invaluable for anyone studying soils, landforms and landscape change. more...

  • Life on a Young Planet: The First Three Billion Years of Evolution on Earthby Andrew H. Knoll; Andrew H. Knoll

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 19.95

    Australopithecines, dinosaurs, trilobites--such fossils conjure up images of lost worlds filled with vanished organisms. But in the full history of life, ancient animals, even the trilobites, form only the half-billion-year tip of a nearly four-billion-year iceberg. Andrew Knoll explores the deep history of life from its origins on a young planet... more...

  • The Vertebrate Integument Volume 2by Theagarten Lingham-Soliar

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2015; US$ 179.00

    The emphasis in this volume is on the structure and functional design of the integument. The book starts with a brief introduction to some basic principles of physics (mechanics) including Newton?s Three Laws of Motion. These principles are subsequently used to interpret the problems animals encounter in motion. It is in only the last 40 or so years... more...

  • Macroevolutionby Emanuele Serrelli; Nathalie Gontier

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 159.00

    This book is divided in two parts, the first of which shows how, beyond paleontology and systematics, macroevolutionary theories apply key insights from ecology and biogeography, developmental biology, biophysics, molecular phylogenetics and even the sociocultural sciences to explain evolution in deep time. In the second part, the phenomenon of macroevolution... more...
