9780470387740: The Earth Through Time

This best-selling historical geology text provides geologists with an excellent balance of basic geology and paleontology. The ninth edition presents rich, authoritative coverage of the history of the Earth, offering the most comprehensive history in the discipline today. It maintains its strong approach to stratigraphy and paleontology that other texts have lost. The text's paleogeographic maps are excellent in detail and are a vital component in understanding the earth's history. Stunning artwork brings the ancient world to life. Geology of National Parks boxes encourage them to visit these parks to appreciate their geological significance. Geologists will also appreciate the questions about past geologic events and the processes used in finding answers.

From the Back Cover:

Experience a story of remarkable events and extraordinary creatures

Seafloors thrust up to form mountain ranges, earthquakes, continents broken apart, fiery floods of lava, mass extinctions... No it’s not the latest blockbuster movie; it’s the story of our planet Earth––a story filled with remarkable events and extraordinary creatures.

In The Earth Through Time, Eighth Edition, Harold Levin continues to bring the fascinating story of the Earth’s geological history to life. Levin’s stimulating, highly visual, comprehensive, and thought-provoking approach to historical geology promotes a spirit of intellectual curiosity. Levin explains how the Earth was born, how it has changed through eons of time, what caused the changes, how those changes affected life in the Earth’s geologic past, and how geologists "read the rocks" to write the Earth's history.

Now updated and revised with many new photographs and graphics, the new Eighth Edition is now even more lively, accessible, and engaging than ever before.

About the Author:

Harold ("Hal") Levin began his career as a petroleum geologist in 1956 after receiving bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Missouri and a doctorate from Washington University. His fondness for teaching brought him  back to Washington University in 1962, where he is currently professor of geology and paleontology in  the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. His writing efforts include authorship of seven edition of The Earth Through Time, four editions of Contemporary Physical Geology; Essentials of Earth Science and co-authorship of Earth: Past and Present, as well as eight editions of Laboratory Studies in Historical Geology; Life Through Time, and more recently, Ancient Invertebrates and Their Living Relatives.
For his courses in physical geology, historical geology, paleontology, sedimentology, and stratigraphy, Hal has received several awards for excellence in teaching. The accompanying photograph was taken during a lecture on life of the Cenozoic Era. The horse skull serves to illustrate changes in the teeth and jaws of grazing animals in response to the spread of prairies and savannahs during the Miocene and subsequent epochs.
