About this book

This book places into modern context the information by which North American mammalian palaeontologists recognise, divide, calibrate, and discuss intervals of mammalian evolution known as North American Land Mammal Ages. It incorporates new information on the systematic biology of the fossil record and utilises the many recent advances in geochronologic methods and their results.

This book is recommended for academic libraries. -- Linda R. Zellmer, E-Streams " Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic Mammals of North America is now the modern standard reference for mammalian biochronology." -- Bruce J. MacFadden, Journal of Paleontology
