The editors have brought together the finest scholars working today on the study of the Paleocene-Eocene transition. Covering mammals, reptiles, invertebrates, and plants as well as the spectrum of marine biota, the book documents both the well-established and the lesser-known turnovers, such as those of the calcareous nannoplankton and terrestrial mollusks. The volume is also notable for its integration of knowledge culled from a wide variety of disciplines, geographic settings, fossil groups, and paleoenvironments.
With twenty-one contributions and more than 180 illustrations, this book will be of great value as a reference source for a wide spectrum of scientists, from marine geologists and oceanographers to paleontologists, paleoclimatologists, and stratigraphers.
