Overview

Historical Geology: Evolution Of Earth And Life Through Time, Third Edition, teaches students the basic principles of the physical and biological events of Earth's history, as well as how scientists apply these principles to unravel the history of Earth. Authors Wicander and Monroe present a balanced overview of both the geological and biological history of the Earth as a continuum of inter-related events. These events reflect the underlying principles and processes that have shaped our planet. The authors also explain the historical development of these basic principles and processes, and their importance in deciphering the history of Earth.Three major themes - time, evolutionary theory, and plate tectonics - are woven throughout the book. These themes help readers link what may seem like unrelated material and are essential for understanding historical geology.Included with every new copy of this edition is In-TERRA-Activeâ„¢ 2.0 CD-ROM.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for a one-semester course presenting the principles of historical geology and showing how they can be applied to understanding the history of the earth. Rather than a mass of encyclopedic facts, Widancer and Monroe (both geology, Central Michigan U.) portray a continuum of interrelated events that reflect the underlying geologic and biologic principles and processes that have shaped the planet. The CD allows students to simulate landslides, predict volcanic eruptions, locate the epicenter of earthquakes, and see the consequences. No dates are noted for the previous editions; the third is updated with recent findings and new photographs. The CiP shows a different ISBN. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
