About this book

Provides a compendium of scientific evidence of extinct organisms, or 'missing links', that bridge the evolutionary gaps between primordial species and modern life. There is an accessible discussion of basic practices, rock and fossil dating techniques, and schools of classification. The book contains a fascinating array of examples of evolutionary transition at all chronological and geographical scales, from the ultimate origins of life on Earth to the morphological changes that readers will observe during their lifetimes.
