The study of vertebrate palaeontology is an active field, with new discoveries being announced every week… and these discoveries aren't limited to dinosaurs. This new volume sheds light on the breadth of vertebrate palaeontology across the globe, with a particular emphasis on the fascinating new discoveries coming out of China.
The primary objective here is to bring clarity to the scientific field. The days of making educated guesses are long behind us. The tree of life, international change, macroevolution, and purposeful morphology are all topics that are currently being investigated by a new generation of academics who are using innovative computational and imaging methods.
Complete changes have been made to the fourth edition. In addition to the incorporation of new intentional and developmental spreads, the cladistic framework has been strengthened. The most important questions, the research that has to be done, references for extra reading, and websites are all included in the study aids.
The Vertebrate Palaeontology: 4th Edition (PDF) book is intended for use in palaeontology courses offered by departments of biology and geology. It is also possible to direct it toward partners who are interested in experiencing the flavor of how the analysis is carried out. This book takes phylogenetics very seriously, and as a result, it is an excellent source of up-to-date knowledge on the evolution of vertebrates.
