      The most recent extinction event is the Ice Age die-offs, and these extinctions do offer help in interpreting the terminal Cretaceous disaster among dinosaurs. The “Asteroid Theory” predicts that extinction should happen almost instantly – in a .   News > Science Asteroid that killed the dinosaurs created endless night and month winter as it rained fire.

    “ Carboniferous Giants and Mass Extinction: The Late Paleozoic Ice Age World “, written by George R McGhee, Jr., published by Columbia University Press in September (paperback, pages) McGhee has devoted some 40 years to studying the late Paleozoic* extinctions. At the end of the last ice age (ca 15,, years ago), 85 percent of the large mammals (called megafauna) went extinct.

    Long after the extinction of dinosaurs, when humans were still in the stone age, woolly rhinos, mammoths, mastodons, sabertooth cats, giant ground sloths, and many other spectacular large animals that are no longer with us roamed the Earth. These animals are regarded as “Pleistocene megafauna,” named for the geological era in which they lived—also known as the Ice Age. In . This is the story the Younger Dryas event and the megafauna extinction. It is hard to picture just 12 years ago earth was at the end of the last Ice Age. North America was a swampy marshland and was home to the largest population of megafauna found anywhere on the planet.

However, Martin's book focuses more on the Ice Age extinction rather than the natural history of Mammoths. If you want a focus on Mammoths, Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age is your book. This book is a revised version of an earlier book, and unlike many "revised" versions this book contains thorough by: Wooly mammoths, sabre-toothed tigers, and giant cave Ice Age Extinction book lived alongside man during the Ice Age.

But while humans persisted, these big beasts--along with other "megafauna"--became extinct. Scientists had suggested that their demise was caused by a comet or asteroid impact that left tiny traces in upper-level rock layers around the world, but new research gives this Ice Age.

Carboniferous Giants and Mass Extinction is a superb and unique synthesis of the current knowledge of processes and conditions during the Late Paleozoic, incorporating the results from all subdisciplines of the earth and life sciences.

McGhee demonstrates his expertise and knowledge in all the subdisciplines in a magnificent way. The book is a pleasure to read and at /5(9). This book has value for anyone interested in the ice age extinction; glaciers; the glacial cycle; the atmosphere and oceans; the past and future of plants, animals, and humans.

It provides long-term information on atmospheric carbon dioxide, global warming and cooling. The most obvious change associated with the termination of an ice age is the increase in temperature.

Betw BP BP, a 6 °C increase in global mean annual temperatures occurred. This was generally thought to be the cause of the extinctions. The Holocene extinction is mainly caused by human activities. Extinction of animals, plants, and other organisms caused by human actions may go Ice Age Extinction book far back as the late Pleistocene, o years ago.

There is a correlation between megafaunal extinction and the arrival of humans, and human population growth and per-capita consumption growth, prominently in the. This book provides significant long term background information to put global warming into perspective.

In addition, the author describes the human responses to increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide after the last ice age - and in the last years. Near the end of the last ice age, atmospheric carbon dioxide was about half of what it is : Jim Snook.

An ice age is a time of extensive glacial activity, and the Ice Age was a result of the Genesis Flood. During this post-Flood Ice Age 30% of the land surface was covered with ice. We know the extent of the Ice Age by the physical evidence of moraines, scratched bedrock, and other markers that we see associated with glaciers today.

Evidence garnered from woolly mammoth fossils led Michael Oard to this well-reasoned theory of mammoth extinction. Using climatology, ecology and archeology the author lays bare the outdated theories about these elephantine creatures and constructs a synthesis of science and biblical truth.

Many charts, graphs and sidebars inform readers desiring a more technical depth to the 5/5(1). It would mean that the current extinction event began all the way back in the middle of the last ice age.

It would mean that man was a killer—to use the term of art an “overkiller”—pretty much right from the start.” ― Elizabeth Kolbert, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural HistoryCited by:.
