      Dr. Erich Fitzgerald, Museum of Victoria’s Senior Curator of Vertebrate Palaeontology stated: “Until now, Australasia didn’t have a particularly ancient fossil record of sea cows, the group of marine mammals that includes our living dugongs. Thomas Huxley described Palaeeudyptes antarcticus from a single tarsometatarsus found at Kakanui, North Otago. The age of the specimen is uncertain, but likely to be about 32 million years old (earliest Oligocene). This was the first fossil penguin ever named, and it is the type species in a genus now recognised as containing at least four species from New Zealand, South Australia and Seymour.

      In the present write up, a synthesis of the research done in the last four years in vertebrate palaeontology, palynology, ammonoid biostratigraphy and stable isotope geochemistry is presented. Fossils and the Flood. Ever since I was a boy I have loved fossils — collecting them, handling them, studying them. There is something magical about splitting open a rock on the beach to find a beautifully preserved ammonite inside. Fossils are the remains or traces of animals and plants that lived in the past.

Vertebrate Palaeontology is a complete, up-to-date history of the evolution of vertebrates. The third edition of this popular text has been extensively revised to incorporate the latest research, including new material from North and South America, Australia, Europe, China, Africa and Russia.

Cox wrote of the predecessor of this book, Archer and Clayton's Vertebrate Zoogeography and Evolution in Australasia, that it was less a coffee table book than a coffee table in smaller, although still large, volume, as the editors carefully note, is not a second edition of that one, but an introduction to the zoogeography and evolutionary history of Australasian vertebrates Author: Ralph E.

The last few years have seen a resurgence in fossil vertebrate (particularly fish) palaeontology, including new techniques for the ‘virtual’ study of fossils (synchrotron and micro CT-scanning) and new research foci, such as ‘Evo-Devo’ – combining fossils with the development of living animals.

Abstract. This chapter focuses on the accelerated extinction of megafauna that occurred within the late Pleistocene, ca. 50, to 10, radiocarbon years before present, with some reference to earlier (Pleistocene) and later (Holocene) by: Arthur Smith Woodward was the Natural History Museum’s longest-serving Keeper of Geology and the world’s leading expert on fossil fish.
