Praise for previous editions:
"Cowens book is refreshing and radically different from most other textbook of this genre as it presents to the non-scientist the study of paleontology and the history of lifew as a dynamic and exciting science." (Journal of the Society for Sedimentary Geology)
This book is aimed at anyone interested in the history of life on our planet. It explores the "whys" of events that occurred, and in this new edition, it takes a closer look at the evolution of the physical earth and the strong interactions between organisms and environment. The book's coverage includes geography, climate, atmosphere, ocean, and land (a changing stage) while following interplay between organisms. Also new to this edition is a devoted website-www.blackwellpublishing.com/cowen-that explores additional environmental factors and supplemental topics and provides key links and additional reader assistance. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
