About this book

When published in 1978, Principles of Paleontology by David Raup and Steven Stanley revolutionized both textbooks and teaching in paleontology. Now Michael Foote and Arnold Miller, former students of Raup's, have stepped in to revise this classic text. It is their vision to take the core approach of the second edition, and reflect the substantial changes to the rudiments of the subject from the previous two decades. This third edition remains an excellent text for those studying geophysical sciences.


The Nature of the Fossil Record - Growth and Form - Populations and Species - Systematics - Evolutionary Morphology - Biostratigraphy - Evolutionary Rates and Trends - Global Diversity and Extinctions - Paleoecology and Paleobiogeography - Multidisciplinary Studies in Paleontology
