Fossil Behavior Compendium by Arthur J. Boucot, George O. Poinar Jr.

By Arthur J. Boucot, George O. Poinar Jr.

During this entire and thorough replace of Arthur Boucot’s seminal paintings, Evolutionary Paleobiology of habit and Coevolution, Boucot is joined via George Poinar, who presents extra services and data on protozoans and micro organism as utilized to affliction. jointly, they make the Fossil habit Compendium wider in scope, protecting all appropriate animal and plant teams and all epochs, and offering a close evaluation of animal and plant fossil habit in terrestrial and aquatic environments. Fossil habit encompasses not just earlier facts of the existence heritage of an organism but additionally behavioral, predation, and symbiotic interactions, together with parasitism. This publication compares styles of habit and coevolution some time past with these of the present-day descendants. It additionally discusses the right way to review the charges of evolution of habit and coevolution at numerous taxonomic degrees. The compendium emphasizes the interactions among fossils and compares those interactions with present-day opposite numbers. It additionally presents new discussions on issues relating to fossils in amber. protecting Boucot’s trademark, easy-to-read kind, the booklet contains new findings by no means released formerly, studies no longer simply accessed, various examples, forty tables, 285 illustrations—some released right here for the 1st time—and a four-page colour insert. The ebook presents a concise account of the proof for numerous illness forms well-known so far within the fossil list.
