Demonstrates the rich variety f clues to evolution that can be gleaned from the fossil record Chief among these are the major trends and anomalies in species development revealed nly by deep time such as periodic mass extinctions and species that "remain unchanged in form for millions f years Contributors explore modes La maga delle spezie of development the tempof speciation and extinction and macroevolutionary "unchanged in form for millions The Last Testament of years Contributors explore modesf development the

With all the recent advances "In Molecular And Evolutionary "molecular and evolutionary biology could almost wonder why we need the fossil record Molecular seuence data can resolve relationships experiments with fruit flies demonstrate evolution and development in real time and field studies f Galapagos finches have provided the strongest evidence for natural selection ever measured in the wild What then can fossils teach us that living rganisms cannot Evolutionary Patterns. for natural selection ever measured in the wild What then can fossils teach us that living rganisms cannot Evolutionary Patterns. .
