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 bears 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 as far back as the late Pleistocene, o years ago.
