Flaptekst

The author’s aim is to escape from the old concept of Palaeontology as the handmaid of Geology. As such, it was a compilation of genera and species valued merely as stratigraphical indices. The writer places palaeontology in its true position as the foundation of Biology, a study of the life of the past, of the structural modifi-cations apparent in a race of organisms through-out their geological history.
