Soils of the past : an introduction to paleopedology by Greg J Retallack( Book )

30 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been 10 years since publication of the first edition of Soils of the Past. In that time the subject of paleopedology has grown rapidly, and established itself within the mainstream of geological research. Ancient soils contain vital mineralogical, geochemical, textural, and paleontological information about the continental environments in which they formed. Advances in isotope geochemistry and sequence-stratigraphic models allow more detailed reconstructions of environmental change from paleosols and new insights into diverse topics like atmospheric chemistry, global change, palaeoecolo

The philosophy of zoology before Darwin : a translated and annotated version of the original French text by Edmond Perrier : originally published by Fâelix Alcan, Paris in 1884 by Edmond Perrier( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Octave Edmond Perrier was a French zoologist who lived through the tumult of British Darwinism and Lyellism, and reminds us in this revealing account that French scientists had much to contribute to such perennial topics as evolution, catastrophism and creationism. While very much a product of the Third Republic, Perrier's account also aimed to outline timeless issues and permanent advances in taxonomic and developmental biology since classical Greece and Rome. In this aim he succeeds with surprisingly modern perspectives for a book first published in 1884. Perrier was born May 9, 1844 at Tulle, the son of the principal of a school which now bears his name, Lycée Edmond Perrier. In 1864 he was accepted to the École Normale Supérieure, where he was strongly influenced by Louis Pasteur and Henri de Lacaze-Duthiers. After working for three years at a high school in Agen, he obtained a post of naturalist-aid at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle (1868), advancing in that institution to Chair of Natural History of Molluscs, Worms and Corals (1876-1903) and then Director of the museum (1900-1919) and Chair of Comparative Anatomy (1903-1921). Previous directors of the museum included many of the scientists he discusses in this book: George Cuvier (1822-1823, 1826-1827, 1830-1831), Isidore Geoffrey St Hilaire (1860-1861), and Alphonse Milne-Edwards (1891-1900). Perrier's own research on echinoderms and earthworms took him on several expeditions in 1880-1885, mostly to Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts, but also to the Caribbean

Gray clay (Malpass clay) in the west Eugene Wetlands and the Willamette Valley is weathered and redeposited ash from Mount Mazama by Karin E Baitis( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The climactic eruption of Mount Mazama approximately 7,600 years ago distributed airfall tuff throughout what is now eastern and offshore Oregon. This distinctive tephrostratigraphic marker had been thought to be absent across the Willamette Valley. X-ray diffraction, examination of pyrogenic mineral suites, and new high-resolution radiometric dating (40AR/39AR) of Malpass clay from tuffaceous marker beds suggest that it is the missing ash from Mount Mazama. Over time and weathering, the ash has transformed into a smectitic gray imogolite and clay. Analysis of this widespread gray clay provided a radiocarbon date of 6,850 ± 70 years before present. Radiometric dating of the clay provided the ages of 7,987 ± 102, 8,451 ± 57, and 8,540 ± 48 years before present. These dates are comparable with that of the climactic eruption of Mount Mazama
