Publisher Summary This chapter provides explanations that are dependent upon a particular and special ecologic or taxonomic history. Because relative uniformity of the environment reinforces specialization and leads to speciation, any given character complex, or lineage, will, on the average appear through time to go from the r to the K end of.
A series of well-preserved specimens from a variety of taxa has firmly placed the origin and early diversification of Neoceratopsia in the Early Cretaceous of Asia, –.However, the timing and phylogenetic affinities of the clade's first dispersal into North America have remained unclear, due to a dearth of fossilized material that, until now, has consisted of relatively uninformative. And with regard to animals, he affirms that the earth, being originally fire in its lower part, where the heat and cold were intermingled, both the rest of animals made their appearance, numerous and dissimilar, all having the same food, being nourished from mud; and their existence was of short duration, but afterwards also generation from one.

C ephalopods are significant predators in Recent seas; in fact, they already were so as far back as the Early Ordovician. The composition and structure of cephalopod faunas changed substantially during their geological history. The relative stability in cephalopod faunas after the Ordovician radiation ended in the Devonian when these faunas changed markedly and ammonoids, nautilids and many.
Palaeontology both borrows from and sheds light upon geology and other branches of the physical history of the earth, each of which, such as palaeogeography or palaeometeorology, is the more fascinating because of the large element of the unknown, the need for constructive imagination, the appeal to other branches of biological and physical investigation for supplementary evidence, and the.
