About this book

Evidence from the fossil record shows that evolutionary radiation through time has not occurred at an even rate. Instead, relatively short-lasting phases of evolution have produced the major radiations that are seen in many taxonomic groups, such as flowering plants during the late Cretaceous. This volume surveys patterns of major evolutionary radiation and their possible causes.
