By Ross H. Nehm, Ann F. Budd

The richly fossiliferous Neogene stratigraphic sections of the Dominican Republic function considered one of just a couple of geological examine structures on the planet the place morphological stasis and punctuated speciation were investigated in a number of lineages. This learn approach presents unparalleled possibilities for comparative experiences of evolutionary stasis and alter and their environmental and ecological contexts. during this quantity, a various workforce of geologists and paleobiologists jointly concentration their awareness in this examine procedure, supplying an up to date geological framework and a sequence of novel stories of evolutionary stasis and alter between various lineages and linked ecological groups. This number of stories illustrates the big strength of collaborative, multidisciplinary, and field-based paleobiological learn for experiences of macroevolutionary swap within the fossil list.
