About this book

Covering mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, and plants as well as the spectrum of the marine biota, the book documents both the well-established and the lesser-known turnovers, such as those of calcareous nannoplankton and terrestrial mollusks. The volume is also notable for its integration of knowledge culled from a wide variety of disciplines, geographic settings, fossil groups, and paleoenvironments.

This is a good compilation of data and ideas concerning an important time slice of Earth history. Some notable gems in this volume should make an impact on future thinking about climate-related biotic change. -- Erick A. Bestland GSA Today The editors have produced a well-organized state of the art compendium, which will form the baseline for studies of this problem well into the next millennium. -- E. Delson, CUNY CHOICE
