About this book

Retrograde Evolution During Major Extinction Crises is the first of its kind, providing in-depth analysis of the retrograde evolution occurring during major extinction periods. The text offers a non-strictly adaptative explanation of repetition of phyla after the major extinctions, utilizing a study of seven phylogenetically distinct groups. This opens a new experimental field in evolutionary biology with the possibility of reconstructing ancestral forms in lab by applying artificial stresses.

Contents

1) Introduction to retrograde evolutionary changes during major environmental crises
2) Evolution of planctonic foraminifera
3) Evolution of Radiolarians
4) Evolution of ammonoids and Nautiloids
5) Evolution of corals
6) Evolution of conodonts
7) Evolution of silicoflagellids as an example of unique lab experiment
