Note Introduction to retrograde evolutionary changes during major environmental crises -- Evolution of planctonic foraminifera -- Evolution of Radiolarians -- Evolution of ammonoids and Nautiloids -- Evolution of corals -- Evolution of conodonts -- Evolution of silicoflagellates as an example of unique lab experiment
This book is the first of its kind, providing in-depth analysis of the retrograde evolution occurring during major extinction periods. The text offers a non-strictly adaptative explanation of repetition of phyla after the major extinctions, utilizing a study of seven phylogenetically distinct groups. This opens a new experimental field in evolutionary biology with the possibility of reconstructing ancestral forms in lab by applying artificial stresses
