Add a review


Contains papers by leading authorities on several of the major extinction events of the geological record. The book brings together new data on a wide range of floral and faunal groups. The papers are grouped as general, Palaeozoic events, Mesozoic events and Cenozoic events. Several of the papers describe the recovery and recolonization processes following the extinction events while others discuss the problems of 'survivor taxa', 'disaster taxa' and 'progenitor species'. The examples chosen come from geological successions in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.
