Unifies an array of diverse topics in geobiology through the shared approach of using the present as the key to the past
Tackles intriguing paleontological questions through creative, tangible, real-world experiments with modern analogous organisms and environments
Represents advances in multiple paleontological and sedimentological fields and provides those familiar with the subject with new results and unique perspectives
Paleontologists and geologists struggle with research questions often complicated by the loss or even absence of key paleobiological and paleoenvironmental information. Insight into this missing data can be gained through direct exploration of analogous living organisms and modern environments. Creative, experimental, and interdisciplinary treatments of such ancient-Earth analogs form the basis of this volume. It unites a diverse range of expert paleontologists, neontologists, and geologists presenting case studies that cover a spectrum of topics, including functional morphology, taphonomy, environments, and organism-substrate interactions.
