This major new atlas offers the first complete look at the evolution of the Earth, from the beginning of the solar system to the present-day. Its six sections are divided into 18 chapters setting out the geological and biological developments of each major geological period. The volume's final section looks at the ways in which the Earth and its biosphere are still evolving today. The distribution today of types of rock, geological formations, fossils and modern species are explained, and the processes of natural evolution and of landscape formation through plate tectonics are revealed here as never before.
