Fossil Horses: Systematics, Paleobiology, and Evolution of the Family Equidae - hardcover

ISBN: 0521340411

[SR: 1533664], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780521340410], Cambridge University Press, Cambridge University Press, Book, [PU: Cambridge University Press], Cambridge University Press, The family Equidae have an extensive fossil record spanning the past 58 million years, and the evolution of the horse has frequently been used as a classic example of long-term evolution. In recent years, however, there have been many important discoveries of fossil horses, and these, in conjunction with such new methods as cladistics, and techniques such as precise geochronology, have allowed us to achieve a much greater understanding of the evolution and biology of this important group. This book synthesizes the large body of data and research relevant to an understanding of fossil horses from several disciplines including biology, geology and paleontology. Using horses as the central theme, the author weaves together in the text such topics as modern geochronology, paleobiogeography, climate change, evolution and extinction, functional morphology, and population biology during the Cenozoic period. This book will be exciting reading for researchers and graduate students in vertebrate paleontology, evolution, and zoology., 13491, Fossils, 13474, Animals, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16310911, Vertebrate, 13542, Paleontology, 13469, Biological Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13603, Geology, 16052951, Geomorphology, 16052841, Historical, 271631011, Limnology, 16052891, Physical, 16052941, Plate Tectonics, 16053011, Sedimentary, 16053041, Specific Locations, 16052931, Structural, 16053021, Volcanology, 13592, Earth Sciences, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13824, Evolution, 13491, Fossils, 13922, Game Theory, 13535, Genetics, 13540, Molecular Biology, 16311091, Organic, 13542, Paleontology, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491702, Biology & Life Sciences, 491704, Anatomy & Physiology, 684289011, Biology, 491716, Botany, 491708, Ecology, 491714, Zoology, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
