This reference provides comprehensive information on the taxonomy and distribution in time and space of all currently recognized
southern African fossil mammals. After an introductory background chapter on southern Africa, mammals, sites and dating, the
following chapters are presented by epoch, covering the Eocene, Miocene, Pliocene, Pleistocene and Holocene. Individual maps
provide information on where in the landscape specific taxa have been found, and a comprehensive index lists all the fauna
and site locations. The book ends with a chapter on how the book can be used, and lines of future research. Collecting a vast
amount of information together in an accessible format, this is an essential reference for non-specialist taxonomists and
palaeontologists, as well as for those using fossil data for other applications, such as archaeology, neontology and nature
conservation. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.
