Evolution of animal behavior : paleontological and field approaches by Matthew H Nitecki( )

26 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume highlights current research in the field of animal behavior, with an emphasis on evolutionary perspectives. The contributors represent paleontological, field, and experimental approaches. They focus on a series of studies that confront wide-ranging issues, including sexual selection, mate choice, differential parental investment, apparent altruism, cooperative behavior, and the relevance of phylogenetic constraints and historical information. The volume will be of special interest to evolutionary biologists, behavioral ecologists, and paleontologists

This is a book for biologists about the use of models in testing biological theory. Distinguished contributors describe the principles of modelling and tell how to apply models to research in molecular biology and genetics, ecology and evolution, and palaeontology

Origins of anatomically modern humans by Doris V Nitecki( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume assembles a diverse group of researchers to analyze the anthropological and biological disagreements regarding the origins of humans. The difficulties of various positions are pointed out, and an attempt at resolution is made by a rigorous definition of Homo sapiens sapiens. The balanced treatment will prove valuable for all researchers and students concerned with this controversial subject
Biochemical aspects of evolutionary biology by Spring Systematics Symposium( Book )

Evolutionary innovations by Matthew H Nitecki( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evolutionary innovations - the bony skeleton of vertebrates, avian flight, or the insect pollination system of angiosperms, for example - have in recent years become the focus of much fertile new research in evolutionary biology. Innovations may hold the keys to understanding why whole new groups of organisms evolve or, conversely, why groups of organisms become extinct. This volume brings together contributors from the fields of morphology, genetics, embryology, physiology, and paleontology to present research on evolutionary innovations and to suggest directions for further work
Paleoalgology : contemporary research and applications by Donald F Toomey( Book )

19 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prior to the 3rd International Symposium on Fossil Algae, held in Golden, Colorado in August of 1983, a 3-day fieldtrip concentrating on Recent algal distribution in southern Florida was led by Robert N. Ginsburg and his associates from Miami. A post-symosium fieldtrip to the West Texas-southern New Mexico region was led by Don Toomey and Jack Babcock. This fieldtrip examined Precambrian and Paleozoic algal carbonates in a region characterized by superb outcrop exposures, and included the famous Permian Reef complex. The Toomey-Babcock fieldtrip resulted in a unique fieldguide published by the Colorado School of Mines (1983), and issued to all participants of the symposium. The symposium itself was held from August 15 through Augsut 17 on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines where Professor J. Harlan Johnson, to whose memory this volume is dedicated, spent so much of his career studying fossil algae. The symposium sessions were held for 3 days, and during that time 40 papers were presented and discussed. A I-day fieldtrip, led by John L. Wray, to examine Late Paleozoic phylloid algal carbonates exposed in the nearby Rocky Mountains, concluded the formal meetings
The evolution of human hunting by Matthew H Nitecki( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The successful early adaptations of man involve a complex interplay of biological and cultural factors. There is a rapidly growing number of paleontologists and paleoanthropologists who are concerned with hominid foraging and the evolution of hunting. New techniques of paleoanthropology and taphonomy, and new information on human remains are added to the traditional approaches to the study of past human hunting and other foraging behavior. There is also a resurgence of interest in the early peopling of the New World. The present book is the result of the Ninth Annual Spring Systematics 10, 1986, in the Symposium, on the Evolution of Human Hunting, held on May Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. We are grateful to the NSF (grant no. BNS 8519960) for partial financial support in arranging the symposium. In preparation of this volume we have received assistance from many people, particularly the reviewers of individual chapters; it is impossible to name them all. We must however single out Drs. Richard G. Klein and Glen H. Cole for their encouragement at various stages of preparation of the symposium and this volume, and for being a help to the anthropological knowledge. Zbigniew Jastrzebski assisted with the figures and Paul K. Johnson diligently typed the camera-ready copy, and patiently coordinated the endless book-making chores

Receptaculitids : a phylogenetic debate on a problematic fossil taxon by Matthew H Nitecki( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Receptaculitids are extinct high-level fossils that provide a window into the history of life. After the discovery and analysis of a deposit of phosphatized receptaculitids on the Baltic Sea island of Öland, the authors conclude that receptaculitids possess an attribute not found in any other group of organisms, living or fossil
Literature of the receptaculitid algae : 1805-1980 by Matthew H Nitecki( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bibliography of 1,649 published references summarizes the progress of study and the history of changing ideas and concepts about receptaculitids, a class of algae composed of Receptaculitales, Cyclocrinitales, and Radiocyatales. All systematic descriptions, and all major stratigraphic and geographic occurrences of receptaculitids are believed to be included. Each entry is accompanied by an abstract consisting of objective data on description, illustration, discussion or listing of the receptaculitid paleontology, and stratigraphy
