Description

This volume records the temporal and geographic distribution of amphibians and reptiles during the Pleistocene era in North America. It covers in detail the identification of fossils, and the range of adjustments and extinction patterns for each species. The focus of the text - the unique relationship of the North American herpetofauna to the events of the Pleistocene - should make it an important reference for anyone interested in Pleistocene flora and fauna.show more
