During the 20 million years after the events at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary, when the dinosaurs became extinct, the diversity of life on Earth recovered step by step. A detailed history of this recovery may give a clue as to how life diversifies and why. This volume (second of three) is a collection of historical documents illustrating some of the many facets of this recovery, focusing on groups of conservative organisms such as dasyclad algae or ostracods. Includes hundreds of diagrams and black & white photographs.
