August 2010, Wiley-Blackwell
PaleoBase provides an important new tool for the teaching of life history in a wide variety of advanced secondary, undergraduate, and graduate courses (e.g., paleontology, historical geology, stratigraphy, paleoceanography, paleobiogeography). Instructors will find the database a rich resource for lecture presentations, discussions, and laboratory exercises. Students will find PaleoBase an invaluable addition to traditional textbooks, and a key reference source for basic systematic paleontology.
