New Book Available - The Triassic Timescale

Available now, Geological Society of London Special Publication 334, The Triassic Timescale, edited by S. G. Lucas.  The table of contents is listed below and you can find out more about the book and order it here.  The PDF of the introductory article is also available as a free download.  Note that in this introductory article Lucas rejects the recent long Norian hypothesis basing this rejection on vertebrate, pollen, and conchostracan biochronology.  For a detailed discussion of this I'll refer interested parties again to the recent paper by Irmis et al. (2010).

  1. The Mundil et al paper in this book is an excellent summary of what we know about the Triassic timescale from radioisotopic age data.
