9780030237515: The Earth Through Time (Saunders Golden Sunburst Series)

This top-selling historical geology text provides an excellent balance of basic geology and paleontology. THE EARTH THROUGH TIME provides rich, authoritative coverage of the history of the Earth, offering the most comprehensive history of the earth on the market today. It maintains its strong approach to stratigraphy and paleontology that others have lost, while updating new finds in areas of radiometric dating, stratigraphic nomenclature, and renewed ideas in paleontology (e.g., new discoveries of dinosaurs, mass extinctions, and current information found in the literature). The paleogeographic maps are excellent in detail and are a vital component in understanding the earth's history.

From the Back Cover:

EXPERIENCE THE EARTH'S PAST AS WE KNOW IT TODAY!

Through six best-selling editions, Harold Levin's THE EARTH THROUGH TIME has proven that studying the ancient world doesn't have to be a passive experience. Instead, the text encourages you to make the Earth's history your own and to get involved in the material. As our understanding of paleogeography grows and the feild advances, this text consistently keeps the pace. The new edition features updated and revised content as well as outstanding art and highly motivated pedagogy.

Highlight s of the Seventh Edition:

  • Balanced coverage of basic geology and paleontology. The Seventh Edition maintains its strong approach to stratigraphy and paleontology.
  • Expanded coverage of Hadean history, Precambrian glaciations, and microbial life in harsh environments, as well as cladistic interpretation of reptiles, additional information and illustrations of the origin of igneous rocks, and the historical significance of metamorphic facies.
  • Stunning artwork that brings the ancient world to life. In addition, the text is richly illustrated with geologic block diagrams, cross-sections, stratigraphic maps, paleogeographic maps, and phylogenetic trees.
  • Geology of National Parks boxes, including several that are new to this edition, provide further illustrations of concepts examined in the text.
  • New Enrichment boxes include the "Origin of the Universe," "Geosynclinal Hypothesis Displaced by Plate Tectonics," and "Can We Bring Back the Dinosaurs?"
  • A Comprehensive Web Site
    (www.wiley.com/college/levin<), including hot links, new items, chapter notes, quizzes, links to study aids, writing tips, reference materials, a glossary, career services, and more.

About the Author:

Harold ("Hal") Levin began his career as a petroleum geologist in 1956 after receiving bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Missouri and a doctorate from Washington University. His fondness for teaching brought him back to Washington University in 1962, where he is currently professor of geology and paleontology in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. His writing efforts include authorship of six editions of The Earth Through Times; four editions of Contemporary Physical Geology; Essentials of Earth Science; and co-authorship of Earth: Past and Present, as well as six editions of Laboratory Studies in Historical Geology; Life Through Times; and most recently, Ancient Invertebrates and Their Living Relatives.
For his course in physical geology, historical geology, paleontology, sedimentology, and stratigraphy, Hal has received several awards for excellence in teaching. The accompanying photograph was taken during a lecture on life of the Cenozoic Era. The horse skull serves to illustrate changes in the teeth and jaws of grazing animals in response to the spread of prairies and savannahs during the Miocene and subsequent epochs.
