Includes the most recent palaeomagnetic and biogeographic data from all major Palaeozoic continents. From this information, a new set of world maps has been produced illustrating successive positions of the continents and oceans throughout the Palaeozoic Era. The relationships between climatic changes, sea level changes, evolutionary radiations and intercontinental migrations are discussed.
