About this book

The palaeobiogeography of fossil organisms is used to generate hypotheses on continental drifting, past migration routes, palaeobiodiversity gradients, geographic barriers, palaeoclimatic and palaeooceanographic conditions. This text is aimed at students and researchers of geology and palaeontology who wish to gain an understanding of palaeobiogeography, but will also be of interest to marine biologists concerned with the biogeographic aspects of palaeontology and evolution.
