Terra : our 100-million-year-old ecosystem--and the threats that now put it at risk by Michael J Novacek( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The natural world as humans have always known it evolved close to 100 million years ago with the appearance of flowering plants and pollinating insects during the age of the dinosaurs. Its tremendous history is now in danger of profound, catastrophic disruption. In Terra, a brilliant synthesis of evolutionary biology, paleontology, and modern environmental science, Michael Novacek shows how all three can help us understand and prevent what he and others call today's "mass extinction event.""--Jacket
The biodiversity crisis : losing what counts( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the potential mass extinction currently threatening Earth's natural world, as human activity endangers many species' natural habitats and menaces the rich variety and interdependence of all living things on the planet
Racing extinction( Visual )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wildlife activists go undercover to expose ways in which the illegal wildlife trade and the oil and gas industries are contributing to the extinction of increasing numbers of species
Dinosaur hunters by Time-Life Films( Visual )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1922 American paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews led an archeological expedition into Mongolia's Gobi Desert and uncovered one of the richest dinosaur graveyards in the world. Political conflicts forced him to leave before he had even scratched the surface of the treasure below. In 1997, two paleontologists, Mike Novacek and Mark Norell, were allowed to return, retracing Chapman's steps and unearthing some groundbreaking finds of their own
Extinction and phylogeny( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than 99 percent of all life that has ever existed on this planet is extinct. Moreover, human acceleration of the extinction of species has created a crisis in biodiversity. How can the history of past life be retrieved? How does this history bear on our understanding of the organization and evolution of present-day species? These questions are addressed in Extinction and Phylogeny." "This book offers new and original research by leading authorities on evolutionary and systematic biology, who rank among the best of the dynamic investigators of botany, zoology, and paleontology. This exciting book includes chapters about the recovery of information from living biota, taking into account the limitations of sampling and the steady rate of contemporary extinction of taxa. Complementary discussions elucidate problems involving the analysis of data sets of variable completeness--for example, partially preserved fossils or patchy samples of extant taxa." "Extinction and Phylogeny balances empirical issues with the theoretical and applies cladistic methodology. This detailed text will prove to be a leading-edge book for professional and student biologists alike and for those in related disciplines. The relationship between extinction and phylogenetic theory must be understood if we are to explain existing biological diversity and effectively assess the declining biodiversity of our planet in the decades to come."--Jacket

Mammal phylogeny by Frederick S Szalay( Book )

8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive analysis of the evidence for the Mesozoic origin and differentiation of mammals, particularly the multituberculates, monotremes, and therians. Leading researchers examine evidence ranging from development and genetic control to cranial ontogeny, basicranial morphology, dental homologies, and postcranial morphology. Emphasis is placed on understanding the evolution of morphological characteristics, on the fossil record, and on the construction of phylogenies based on the analysis of characters and on mammalian distribution. In addition to a synthesis of current understanding, the book offers new research on mammalian evolution which occurred during the Age of Reptiles; the longest time period of mammalian evolution. This cohesive book will be invaluable for taxonomists, evolutionary morphologists, vertebrate paleontologists, and mammalogists for its summary of knowledge on mammal phylogeny and for its wealth of references
