Description: The general acceptance of plate tectonics and continental drift by the early 1970s galvanized the study of biogeography of the whole period from the evolution of multicellular life to the present day. However, until now the accumulated information has been widely scattered in the literature; this book is the first to synthesize the results of over two decades of prolific research into a form accessible to students of geology, geography, and biology and theirteachers. A comprehensive bibliography is provided for those wishing to pursue the subject in greater depth.
Synopsis: Palaves biogeographic research over the last twenty years or so has been galvarized by the general acceptance of plate tectonics and, hence, of the orrurrence of continental drift. This study, written by an internationally respected author of palaeontological books from student to professional levels, is the first to synthesize this research. The introductory chapters deal with the historical background, the major factors influencing the distribution of organisms, methods of biogeographic analysis, and the major events of the Phanerozoic. These are followed by concise reviews of the changing terrestrial and marine biogeographic patterns, as indicated by the fossil record, over successive eras, and an attempt to explain the patterns observed. The comprehensive bibliography provided allows readers to follow up material in greater depth. the book is a concise overview of a large body of material, presented in a manner that will be accessible to students and teachers of palaeontology who are interested in biogeography, to geologists who need to know more about the use of fossils in tectonic reconstructions, and to biologists requiring historical insights into the distributions of living organisms.
