Le règne animal : distribué d'après son organisation, pour servir de base à l'histoire naturelle des animaux et d'introduction à l'anatomie comparée by Georges Cuvier( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French zoologist and naturalist Georges Cuvier (1769-1832), one of the most eminent scientific figures of the early nineteenth century, is best known for laying the foundations of comparative anatomy and palaeontology. He spent his lifetime studying the anatomy of animals, and broke new ground by comparing living and fossil specimens - many he uncovered himself. However, Cuvier always opposed evolutionary theories and was during his day the foremost proponent of catastrophism, a doctrine contending that geological changes were caused by sudden cataclysms. He received universal acclaim when he published his monumental Le règne animal, which made significant advances over the Linnaean taxonomic system of classification and arranged animals into four large groups. The sixteen-volume English translation and expansion, The Animal Kingdom (1827-35), is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. First published in 1817, Volume 1 of the original version covers mammals and birds

L'Eocène continental du synclinal d'Apt (Vaucluse, sud-est de la France) : enchaînements silcrete-calcrete et argilogenèse by François Désiré Roulin( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans le bassin d' Apt, la série détritique continentale paléocène-éocène est représentée par des sables colorés azoïques, "pro parte" conglomératiques : à la base, l'ensemble inférieur d'âge paléocène à éocène inférieur, vers le haut, l'ensemble supérieur d'âge éocène s.l. Les ensembles inférieur et supérieur montrent une évolution verticale nette des populations argileuses. A cette argilogenèse se superposent deux phases d'altération de surface, la première phase est silicifiante, la deuxième phase est calcitisante. L'alternance de ces transformations avec des phases de dépôts détritiques en contexte de reactivation tectonique a permis de definir des cycles sédimentation-encroutements qui s'installent à l' éocène moyen dans le sud-est de la France
