About this book

Leading authorities discuss what can be learned from the mass extinctions and other critical periods about the rise and fall of plant and animal species in response to global change, and how some evolutionary doors have been opened while others have been closed. The work is designed to help provide a scientific framework to assist the evaluation of the possible impacts of present and future global changes on the biosphere.
