The geologic record contains evidence of greenhouse climates in the earth's past, and by studying these past conditions, we can gain greater understanding of the forcing mechanisms and feedbacks that influence today's climate. Leading experts in paleoclimatology combine in one integrated volume new and state-of-the-art paleontological, geological, and theoretical studies to assess intervals of global warmth. The book reviews what is known about the causes and consequences of globally warm climates, demonstrates current directions of research on warm climates, and outlines the central problems that remain unresolved. The chapters present new research on a number of different warm climate intervals from the early Paleozoic to the early Cenozoic. The book will be of great interest to researchers in paleoclimatology, and it will also be useful as a supplementary text on advanced undergraduate or graduate level courses in paleoclimatology and earth science.

MEDIA REVIEWS
' ... climate scientists interested in the basic performance of climate models, and the evolution of the climate over the last 500 million years, will find this volume worth dipping into.' Grant Bigg
'This book is intended as a research text, and certainly, it is a book that no palaeaclimatologist should miss. It contains some excellent overviews of palaeoclimate methods, and some clear explanations of climate models.' Jane Francis, International Journal of Climatology
'This very readable, carefully edited volume is an important contribution to a better understanding of past events that have great consequences for anticipating future environmental change.' Alan Graham, Quarterly Review of Biology
"This very readable, carefully edited volume is an important contribution to a better understanding of past events that have great consequences for anticipating future environmental change." Quarterly Review of Biology
"the assembled papers will be of interest to a broad spectrum of Earth scientists and present many useful insights into the "state of the art" of paleoclimate studies using data and numerical models." Palaios Aug 2001
