About this book

An account of the remarkable fossil record that documents the origin of mammals since the extinction of the dinosaurs, which traces their evolution over the last 35 million years. For the first time presented in one single volume, Kemp unveils the exciting DNA sequence evidence which coupled with fossil evidence challenges current thinking on the relationships amongst mammals and their inferred history.
