Here, a diverse group of geologists and paleobiologists focus their attention on the richly fossiliferous Neogene stratigraphic sections of the Dominican Republic. They 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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Aus den Rezensionen:

“... Der vorliegende Band versteht sich als Zusammenfassung ... soll also zu weiteren Arbeiten ermutigen. ... Einer geschichtlichen Einführung folgt eine sehr detaillierte Darstellung der Geologie und Stratigraphie. Weitere Kapitel behandeln Klimaveränderungen (auf der Basis von Sr/Ca-Isotopen), taphonomische Prozesse am Beispiel von Mollusken, Evolution und Probleme des Artkonzepts in Korallen und Gastropoden, und Veränderung der Faunenzusammensetzung bei Korallen- und Molluskenfaunen. Arbeiten zu Korallen überwiegen ganz klar und werden später hier noch in eigenen Besprechungen gewürdigt. ... Der Band ist reich illustriert ...“ (H. LÖSER, in: Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie. Teil II: Paläontologie, August/2009, Issue 3/4, S. 703 f.)
