Vertebrate palaeontology is an energetic field, with new discoveries reported each week… and not only dinosaurs! This new edition shows the international scope of vertebrate palaeontology, with a particular focus on exciting new finds from China.
The main aim is to explain the science. Gone are the days of guesswork. Young researchers use inspiring new numerical and imaging methods to explore the tree of life, global change, macroevolution, and functional morphology.
The fourth edition is completely revised. The cladistic framework is reinforced, and new functional and developmental spreads are included. Study aids feature key questions, research to be done, and references for further reading and web sites.
Vertebrate Palaeontology, 4th Edition, (PDF) is designed for palaeontology courses in biology and geology departments. It is also targeted at enthusiasts who want to experience the flavour of how the research is done. The ebook is strongly phylogenetic, and this makes it a source of present data on vertebrate evolution.
NOTE: The product only includes the ebook, Vertebrate Palaeontology, 4th Edition in PDF. No access codes are included.
