Topics in Paleobiology
Books in the Topics in Paleobiology series will feature key fossil groups, key events, and analytical methods, with emphasis on paleobiology, large-scale macroevolutionary studies, and the latest phylogenetic debates.
The books will provide a summary of the current state of knowledge and a trusted route into the primary literature, and will act as pointers for future directions for research. As well as volumes on individual groups, the Series will also deal with topics that have a cross-cutting relevance, such as the evolution of significant ecosystems, particular key times and events in the history of life, climate change, and the application of new techniques such as molecular paleontology.
The books are written by leading international experts and will be pitched at a level suitable for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers in both the paleontological and biological sciences.
The Series Editor is Mike Benton, Professor of Vertebrate Palaeontology in the School of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol.
The Series is a joint venture with the Palaeontological Association.
