About this book

Describes and interprets Permian and Triassic rocks in the eastern Tethyan region, summarizing the distribution of major fossil groups in a way that will allow detailed comparison with strata of comparable age in the western Tethys and other parts of the world.

' ... wealth of information and ideas ... anyone working on the Permo-Triassic mass extinction should always have a copy to hand.' Geoscientist
