about

Marine Paleobiodiversity presents a concise history, development and current status of paleobiodiversity research, thus forming a reference work for beginners, graduates and postgraduates, who are interested in this subject and intend venture into serious research. This book provides a link-reference between text book and highly-specialized journal articles, and so will be valuable for a wide audience of geologists and climatologists.



  • Presents studies on the human environmental impacts in climate changes, future sea level perturbations and the influence these have on biodiversity
  • Authored by a renowned researcher with over 15 years experience in the field
  • Includes recent research on the importance of paleobiodiversity patterns that influence sea level fluctuations
Dr.Mu. Ramkumar obtained his B.Sc. and Ph.D. from National College, Bharathidasan University, masters in geology from Annamalai University. His research interests range from Recent-Paleozoic depositional systems and integrated sequence-chemostratigraphy, and basin evolution. He has published about 100 articles author of 5 books (Cretac...
