About this book

More than 99% of all life that has ever existed on Earth is now extinct. Now, with man causing the acceleration of species extinction and therefore a biodiversity crisis, a clear understanding of the process of extinction and the evolutionary history of species (phylogeny) is needed more than ever. This book offers new and original research by leading authorities of evolutionary and systematic biology.

Stands apart from the many other recent volumes on extinction with its emphasis on the importance of systematic data in the analysis of the stratigraphic record and the distribution of species in space and time. These chapters carry ideas that will have lasting consequences for paleontological theory and method.
