Here, a diverse group of geologists and paleobiologists focus their attention on the richly fossiliferous Neogene stratigraphic sections of the Dominican Republic. They provide an updated geological framework and a series of novel studies of evolutionary stasis and change among different lineages and associated ecological communities. This collection of studies illustrates the immense potential of collaborative, multidisciplinary, and field-based paleobiological research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Aus den Rezensionen: "... Der vorliegende Band versteht sich als Zusammenfassung ... soll also zu weiteren Arbeiten ermutigen. ... Einer geschichtlichen Einfuhrung folgt eine sehr detaillierte Darstellung der Geologie und Stratigraphie. Weitere Kapitel behandeln Klimaveranderungen (auf der Basis von Sr/Ca-Isotopen), taphonomische Prozesse am Beispiel von Mollusken, Evolution und Probleme des Artkonzepts in Korallen und Gastropoden, und Veranderung der Faunenzusammensetzung bei Korallen- und Molluskenfaunen. Arbeiten zu Korallen uberwiegen ganz klar und werden spater hier noch in eigenen Besprechungen gewurdigt. ... Der Band ist reich illustriert ..." (H. LOESER, in: Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie. Teil II: Palaontologie, August/2009, Issue 3/4, S. 703 f.)
