  • Features comparative studies of evolutionary change in the same well-studied geological context
  • Wide-ranging collection of studies

In this volume, a diverse group of geologists and paleobiologists collectively focus their attention on the richly fossiliferous Neogene stratigraphic sections of the Dominican Republic which serves as one of only a few geological research systems in the world where morphological stasis and punctuated speciation have been investigated in multiple lineages. This research system offers up unprecedented opportunities for comparative studies of evolutionary stasis and change and their environmental and ecological contexts. The authors here provide an updated geological framework and a series of novel studies of evolutionary stasis and change among different lineages and associated ecological communities.

This collection of studies illustrates the immense potential of collaborative, multidisciplinary, and field-based paleobiological research for studies of macroevolutionary change in the fossil record.
