Evolution and the fossil record

 

Evolution is one of the fundamental underlying concepts of modern science. This powerful theory explains such phenomena as the history of life preserved in the fossil record; the genetic, molecular, and physical similarities and differences among organisms; and the geographic distribution of organisms today and in the past. Indeed, evolution forms the foundation of modern biology and paleontology and is well documented by evidence from a variety of scientific disciplines.

Adventures in paleontology 36 classroom fossil activities

At one point or another, it seems like all students are interested in paleontology. Wonderful extinct animals like dinosaurs excite the imagination like almost nothing else. Once you have the students’ interest, you will find that a study of paleontology provides avenues of exploration into a wide variety of foundational sciences such as biology, geology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy (See Table 1). Paleontology is also an excellent way to teach to the National Science Education Standards (NRC 1996), and all of the activities in this book are aligned with one or more of the Science Content Standards for grades 5–8 (See Table 2). We use an active hands-on approach because that is the best way to learn. A great teacher I know has a sign above his desk that reads, “If they hear it, they will forget. If they see it, they will remember. If they do it, they will learn.” It is the philosophy of this book that learning through hands-on activities is the best way to integrate new knowledge.

Genetics, Paleontology,and Macroevolution; Second Edition

Evolutionary biology enjoys the peculiar dual status of being that subject which clearly unites all biological endeavors, while occasionally seeming to be nearly as remote from complete understanding as when Darwin brought it within the realm of materialistic science. Somehow, the basic precepts first proposed by Darwin have never been either fully accepted or disposed, to be followed by a movement toward further progress in some other direction. The arguments of today – the questions of natural selection and adaptation, saltation versus gradualism, and questions of relatedness among organisms – are not all that different from those discussed 100 years ago, even if the research materials seem that much more sophisticated.

High-Resolution Approaches in Stratigraphic Paleontology

Since at least the Renaissance, as exemplified by Steno’s contributions, there has been the recognition that Earth history can be interpreted from the analysis of the geologic record. The primary aim of most geologic studies has been and continues to be the reconstruction of that history, so that theoretically the dynamics of the Earth’s systems and the interactions between those systems can be reconstructed along time slices. Highresolution stratigraphic analysis was developed, as the name implies, to glean data from the record at increased levels of temporal and spatial resolution to accomplish that aim. The application of the technique initially focused largely on lithologic and paleontologic indicators and their variability that can be employed to improve resolution and erect frameworks for various intervals in the geologic column.

Invertebrate paleontology and evolution

The book is organized in a step-wise fashion that introduces the reader to the main principles of the field of paleontology (including genetics, populations and micro- and macroevolution) and then moves into detailed descriptions of the various invertebrate phyla. Be aware that this is not your typical coffee table book; rather, it is written at a level best appreciated by those with a biological background or by introductory students in this field. Descriptions are appropriately detailed and concise and are accompanied by a wealth of similarly detailed drawings and images. I particularly enjoyed his chapters on molluscs, echinoderms and crinoids. It is a valuable accompaniment to other books that have been written on the Burgess Shale and early forms of non-vertebrate life. Both the armchair paleontologist and the professional will find this to be a most valuable addition to his or her collection of books on this wonderfully diverse group of ancient animals.

Treatise on invertebrate paleontology. Part Q

The Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology (or TIP) published by the Geological Society of America and the University of Kansas Press, is a definitive multi-authored work of some 50 volumes, written by more than 300 paleontologists, and covering every phylum, class, order, family, and genus of fossil and extant (still living) invertebrate animals. The prehistoric invertebrates are described as to their taxonomy, morphology, paleoecology, stratigraphic and paleogeographic range. However, genera with no fossil record whatsoever have just a very brief listing.

 

Publication of the decades-long Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology is a work-in-progress; and therefore it is not yet complete: For example, there is no volume yet published regarding the post-Paleozoic era caenogastropods (a molluscan group including the whelk and periwinkle). Furthermore, every so often, previously-published volumes of the Treatise are revised.

Paleontology: Digging for Dinosaurs and More

Paleontology is the study of living things that died before people kept records. If none of these living things are around today, how do we know they once lived? Through the study of fossils! Fossils are preserved, or saved, remains that offer proof of plant or animal life from long ago. There are two types of fossils. One type is body fossils. These are remains of body parts, such as bones, that have been preserved over the years. The second kind is trace fossils. These are clues left behind by animals, such as footprints, tracks, and bite marks.

PRACTICES of ARCHAEOLOGICAL STRATIGRAPHY

This book aims to bring together a number of examples which illustrate the development and use of the Harris Matrix in describing and interpreting archaeological sites. This matrix, the theory of which is described in the two editions of Edward Harris' previous book, Principles oj Archaeolonical Stratinraphy, made possible for the first time a diagrammatic representation of the stratigraphic sequence of a site, no matter how complex. The Harris Matrix, by showing in one diagram all three linear dimensions, plus time, represents a quantum leap over the older methods which relied on sample sections only.

Principles of archaeological stratigraphy

The first edition of this book was published in 1979 and was reprinted in 1987. Under the auspices of the publishers, Nova Scientificia, it appeared in an Italian edition in 1983 translated by Ada Gabucci, with an introductory chapter by Daniele Manacorda. It was published in Polish in 1989, translated by Zbigniew Kobylinski. A Spanish edition of the revised edition has been agreed. Given the success of the book, a new edition seemed warranted, particularly as it is the only textbook devoted entirely to the concepts of stratigraphy in archaeology.

Vertebrate paleontology. Third edition

Vertebrate palaeontology is always in the news: astonishing, ancient basal chordate and vertebrate fossils are announced from China; fossil hunters argue about which was the largest dinosaur of all, or the oldest dinosaur with feathers; an ancient fossil bird is announced that adds 100 million years to their history; ever-older specimens of human beings are unearthed in Africa.

Vertebrate paleontology and evolution

This work is an excellent overview of the vast sum of information known about vertebrates. It's concise but a complete coverage of the subject, shedding light on many of the theories and controversies regarding various aspects of the subject. Romer avails himself of embryologic information, as well as geologic, to shed light on the development of these animals. He sheds enough light on the development of various anatomic areas to be interesting but not tedious for the novice reader.

Dinamical paleoclimatology. generalized theory of global climate change

Seismic stratigraphy, basin analysis and reservoir characterization Like all great poetry, this insightful couplet by Robert Frost contains many levels of meaning for all areas of human experience, some of which, in my view, are especially relevant for the subject of this book. For example, from a physical viewpoint it is very likely that the "secret" of paleoclimatic variability lies in the center of the internal slow-response climate system, e.g., in the deep ocean, the behavior of which we are just beginning to unravel. From a more mathematical viewpoint, it has yet to be established whether the "rings" of oscillatory variability observed, highlighted by the major near-100-ky-period ice ages of the Late Pleistocene, are centered about stable or unstable equilibria that determine whether they are forced or free.
