about

This book presents a major summary of what is currently known about North American amphibians and fossils in the Pleistocene. The only book available on the subject, it includes a general treatment of the Pleistocene and its effects on the physical and biological world, and features anillustrated bestiary of the herpetological families and genera as well as a discussion of the identification of fossils. The changes in the North American herpetofauna from the Cretaceous to the Pleistocene are cogently summarized, and complete herpetofaunal lists from the seven designatedPleistocen regions of North America are included. The concluding chapter details range adjustments and extinction patterns, and contrasts the evolutionary "stasis" of the herpetofauna with the avian and mammalian fauna. The work will be considered an essential reference forpalaeontologists.
