Proceedings of the XVth International Congress on Carboniferous and Permian Stratigraphy
Utrecht, 10-16 August 2003
Distributed for Edita-the Publishing House of the Royal
Organized thematically, the book covers a wide variety of topics, including the structural development of Carboniferous basins, the paleontology of those periods, and Carboniferous and Permian timescales and global correlations. As the contributors demonstrate, a better understanding of the evolution of the earth during the Carboniferous and Permian periods will not only help us find more mineral resources, but will also provide insight into important modern environmental questions.
