Late Cenozoic environments and hominid evolution : a tribute to Bill Bishop by Peter Andrews( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The influence of Bill Bishop is reflected throughout this volume, even though his sudden death stopped a brilliant research career in full flow. Most of the authors are connected with Bill as research collaborators and students, or as the next generation of students of these supervisors." "The volume begins with an appreciation of Bill's life and work; the research contributions that then follow are arranged in three thematic sections, each with a scene-setting editorial overview:" "Part 1. Early Miocene of Uganda, including the first full account and discussion of the recently discovered oldest known hominoid Morotopithecus bishopi." "Part 2. Middle Miocene to Pleistocene of the Tugen Hills, Kenya, a comprehensive account of the hominids and their environmental context from members of the Baringo Basin Project." "Part 3. Quaternary Environments, with particular emphases on the English Midlands, western Scotland and southern Africa." "Throughout this commemorative volume, the determination of editors and authors to place the results of specialist research into their environmental context is perhaps the clearest indication of the visionary influence of Bill Bishop."--Jacket
