' ! climate scientists interested in the basic performance of climate models, and the evolution of the climate over the last 500 million years, will find this volume worth dipping into.' Grant Bigg 'This book is intended as a research text, and certainly, it is a book that no palaeaclimatologist should miss. It contains some excellent overviews of palaeoclimate methods, and some clear explanations of climate models.' Jane Francis, International Journal of Climatology 'This very readable, carefully edited volume is an important contribution to a better understanding of past events that have great consequences for anticipating future environmental change.' Alan Graham, Quarterly Review of Biology
