Evolving Eden: an illustrated guide to the evolution of the African large mammal fauna.

Irvington: Columbia University Press, 2004. Octavo, dustwrapper, photographs, other illustrations.

Linking the evidence of the past with that of the present, this exquisitely illustrated guide examines the evolution of the mammalian fauna of Africa within the context of dramatic changes over the course of more than 30 million years of primate presence. The book covers such topics as dating, continental drift, and global climate change and the likely motors of evolution as well as the physical evolution of the African continent, including present and past climates, and the major determinants of plant and mammal distributions. The authors discuss human evolution as a part of the larger pattern of mammalian evolution while responding to the unique interest that we have in our own past. Also available in paperback [stock id 26491].
