The last decade has seen remarkable new discoveries regarding the evolution of life based on the fossil record—from new information about the earliest multi-celled animals to a new candidate for the ancestor of insects to landmark findings about the region and lifestyle of dinosaurs. This book aims to integrate all of these new findings in an overall evolutionary context, starting with new ideas on the evolution of life on this planet and progressing through the entire fossil record.

About the author (1998)

Kenneth J. McNamara is senior curator of invertebrate paleontology at the Western Australian Museum in Perth. He has investigated the role of heterochrony in evolution in a wide range of living and fossil animals in Europe, Australia, China, and Africa. He is co-author of Heterochrony: The Evolution of Ontogeny.

After he graduated college with a degree in fine arts, John Long became a fireman because he couldn't find work as an art teacher. Having spent 15 years on the fire squad, he now devotes all his time to his art, and to his nationally syndicated cartoon, Lumpy Gravy. When he's not in the studio, he is exhibiting at art fairs around the country. On the rare occasions when he takes a vacation, John and his wife Janet travel to New York City to catch up on museums, galleries, and big city energy. John and Janet divide their time between Ann Arbor, Michigan and a mobile home park in Florida.
