Cretaceous-Tertiary mass extinctions : biotic and environmental changes

Author: Norman MacLeod; Gerta Keller
Publisher: New York : W.W. Norton, ©1996.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 1st edView all editions and formats
Summary:
A fascinating study that combines research on mass extinction with the theoretical perspectives of the leaders in the field. In twenty engaging essays, more than thirty leading paleobiologists and paleontologists uncover a wealth of data from the fossil record about changes in species survival and physical environments across the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K/T) boundary. Together these papers present a much-awaited global  Read more...

Abstract:

This text contains a collection of 20 articles that detail the biotic response to major environmental upheavals at the close of the Cretaceous Period. It provides a description of the fossil evidence  Read more...
