This is the second volume on the fossil ungulates of the Pliocene and Pleistocene sediments associated with the hominids of the Koobi Fora region of northern Kenya. It describes the fossil hippopotamuses, camels, giraffes, and antelopes that have been recovered from the Koobi Fora Formation. An introductory chapter summarizes recent geological investigations of the region with particular reference to the stratigraphy and palaeogeography. The final chapter evaluates the changing palaeoenvironmental conditions, drawing upon all currently available geological and fossil evidence. A series of reference tables provides detailed measurements and stratigraphic provenance of the described fossils.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'this is a worthy contribution to an exciting fossil locality, necessary reading for research workers and students alike who are concerned with the African Plio-Pleistocene ... the series as a whole is set to become one of the definitive source books for this period and well worth the expense' Peter Andrews, Geological Magazine, Volume 129, Part 5, 1992
'It is an example of that most useful and long-lasting of palaeontological publications - an illustrated documentation of an extinct fauna pivotal in understanding the evolution of the Recent fauna.' A.W. Gentry, Natural History Museum, Journal of Biogeography, 19 (3) (1992)
