Leadings scientists convened to present their findings and views to the international geological research community. Volume 12 of 26 focuses on paleontology and historical geology. All articles in the proceedings have been refereed and keynote papers have been included in Volume 1. These proceedings aim to present a view of contemporary geology and should be of interest to researchers in the geological sciences.
