Paleontologist Eldredge (curator, Dept. of Invertebrates, American Museum of Natural History, NYC) overturns the traditional view of evolution. Instead of a slow and inevitable process, he shows that life forms, generally, do not evolve to any significant degree until after a massive extinction. Still-life nature photographer Murray Alcosser provides 160 luminous colorplates illustrating some 250 different fossil specimens. The introduction is by Stephen J. Gould. A lovely volume. 11x10 .
