About this book

This volume presents the latest science on all significant geological and paleontological aspects of the Earth during the Late Triassic Period. Rather than presenting a collection of narrowly focused research papers, the volume consists of a series of peer-reviewed chapters on specific aspects of the Late Triassic world (e.g., tectonics, magmatism, paleobotany, climate, etc.), all authored by experts in the subject of their respective chapters. Each chapter reviews and summarizes the latest findings in these fields and also includes a review of the pertinent literature. The author list is very broadly international and forms a veritable who’s who of expertise in these fields. The book is loosely organized to present the physical aspects of Earth during the Late Triassic at the outset, followed by the paleontological aspects. The latter section is further organized to present the record of the marine environment first before moving onto land, with fauna followed by flora. The volume closes with a review of the end-Triassic extinctions.

About the authors

Dr. Lawrence Tanner serves as Professor and Director of the Center for the Study of Environmental Change at Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York. Dr. Tanner has written two textbooks and edited five volumes prior to this one. 

Reviews

“The volume is logically arranged to cover the underpinnings first, namely the topics of time scale, plate tectonics, climate, magmatism, and bolides. The remaining chapters focus on biota, including both terrestrial and marine realms. … The volume closes with a provocative chapter on the ‘missing’ mass extinction at the end of the Triassic Period. … Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals.” (I. D. Sasowsky, Choice, Vol. 56 (2), October, 2018)
