About this book

This extensively illustrated volume brings together for the first time the results of research on Arabian continental vertebrates discovered in the United Arab Emirates, the Sultanate of Oman, and the Republic of Yemen. Eminent scientists from Arabia, Europe, and the United States provide up-to-date information on Arabian paleontology as well as on Arabian stratigraphical, geological, isotopic, and paleomagnetic topics. Fossil Vertebrates of Arabia presents new fossil records from Arabia and Pakistan and discusses the closing of the ancient Middle East Tethys seaway.

The first section of Fossil Vertebrates of Arabia provides a history of the Abu Dhabi Miocene project, and the second describes the local geology and stratigraphy. Part III details studies on Late Miocene invertebrates, fish, reptiles, and mammals from the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, including several new species. Part IV reviews taphonomy, carbon isotopes, ancient Arabian environments, and the earliest evidence of the genus Homo in the region. The fifth section links research findings in Arabia to others in Asia and Africa, and the final section looks at Arabia in the larger context of Old World Tertiary faunas and the world`s Tertiary oceans.

In collaboration with The Abu Dhabi Company for Onshore Oil Operations and The Ministry for Higher Education and Scientific Research, United Arab Emirates

Media reviews

"The contributors to this timely volume are top-notch. The book marks the formal opening step in recognizing a new and rapidly developing area of research."
– John van Couvering, Micropaleontology Press

"The book is unique, with no other similar source on Arabian fossil vertebrates in existence. The Arabian Peninsula has long occupies a critical biogeographic position between African and Asian faunas, yet its paleontology is only now being sorted out in detail [...] Valuable for geologists as well as paleontologists [...] This book will long be a critical geological and paleontological reference for Arabia."
