About this book

In Antarctic history, the Eocene Epoch is rife with change, with climate conditions spanning 'Greenhouse' to 'Icehouse' conditions. In "Paleobiology and Paleoenvironments of Eocene Rocks, McMurdo Sound, East Antarctica", readers will find the most recent record to date of the Eocene in East Antarctica. Combined with detailed study of the floral and faunal content of Eocene erratics, we can now envision as never before the conditions that prevailed in the high southern latitudes just prior to final separation of Antarctica from the Australian continent. Here then is the benchmark for current research and future discoveries for scientists, researchers and students of the region.
