About this book

A concise account of the fossil record of vertebrates in Australasia, a region of great interest to evolutionists due to the divergence of its biota from that of other continents at an early stage. It is highly illustrated with a detailed taxonomic index, and several appendices. It is a direct outgrowth of The Fossil Vertebrate Record of Australasia, first published in 1982. All the original topics have been retained and updated, but in addition new chapters on vertebrate microfossils, fossil turtles, fossil eggs, the Quaternary megafauna of Australia, the Quaternary avifauna of New Zealand, the vertebrate fossil faunas of the islands of Australasia, including the southwestern Pacific, and the fossil vertebrates of New Caledonia have been added.
