Paleobiogeography (3 cr) P: L318; G404 or L374; G561 or L473.
Introduction to the theory and practice of analyzing the spatial and
temporal distribution of past life.  The evolution of major life
forms, from PreCambrian microbes to modern megafauna, are considered
within a biostratigraphic and geobiogeographic context.  Models of
dispersion patterns are analyzed within a plate tectonic and
paleoclimatic, icehouse to greenhouse, context.
