Críticas:

"Ever since Nick Holton's book from 1980 we have needed an update on the biology of therapsids, and it has been Anusuya Chinsamy and her students and associates who through their bone histological work have made the greatest progress in this field." Martin Sander, Steinman Institute, University of Bonn "Forerunners of Mammals is full of meticulous detail ... [I]t also contains a number of excellently rendered illustrations of some of the animals covered in the book ... Recommended." Choice "This volume represents a state-of-the-art contribution to our understanding of the paleobiology of how mammals arose, and what factors contributed to their evolutionary radiation and eventual success. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in these topics, and will be accessible to readers with minimal background in bone histology and synapsid paleontology." - Quarterly Review of Biology

Reseña del editor:

More than 300 million years ago, during the period known as the Carboniferous, there emerged a group of four-legged animals known as synapsids. Their descendents, the therapsids, would eventually give rise to mammals. Beginning with an introduction to the synapsids, their descendents, and the ancient world in which they lived, this remarkable book surveys their radiation, histology, and biology. It documents types of bone microstructure and their biological implications, provides insights into their biology and the evolution of endothermy in the group, and highlights areas for future research. A detailed guide to the synapsids, the book discusses the interrelationships within the group and their radiation from the earliest pelycosaurs to the diverse non-mammalian therapsids and later to the increasingly more mammal-like cynodonts. A chapter on the Karoo Basin of South Africa documents an unparalleled record of therapsid evolution and radiation and offers a unique perspective on therapsid biodiversity and paleoenvironmental analysis.

Descripción Indiana University Press, United States, 2011. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 259 x 183 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. About 320 million years ago a group of reptiles known as the synapsids emerged and forever changed Earth s ecological landscapes. This book discusses the origin and radiation of the synapsids from their sail-backed pelycosaur ancestor to their diverse descendants, the therapsids or mammal-like reptiles, that eventually gave rise to mammals. It further showcases the remarkable evolutionary history of the synapsids in the Karoo Basin of South Africa and the environments that existed at the time. By highlighting studies of synapsid bone microstructure, it offers a unique perspective of how such studies are utilized to reconstruct various aspects of biology, such as growth dynamics, biomechanical function, and the attainment of sexual and skeletal maturity. A series of chapters outline the radiation and phylogenetic relationships of major synapsid lineages and provide direct insight into how bone histological analyses have led to an appreciation of these enigmatic animals as once-living creatures. The penultimate chapter examines the early radiation of mammals from their nonmammalian cynodont ancestors, and the book concludes by engaging the intriguing question of when and where endothermy evolved among the therapsids.
