Paleogeographic Provinces and Provinciality
Questions relating to the past distribution of faunas, floras and sediments, the meaning of distributional patterns, and causes of changes in past distributions have greatly interested many scientists for more than a century. These problems take on added importance when viewed in the context of recent theories of plate tectonics and redistribution of crustal blocks. This volume presents the results of a Research Symposium, which was given at the annual meeting of SEPM in Denver, Colorado on April 18, 1972. The resulting papers view paleogeographic provinces and provinciality over a broad spectrum. The papers are so completely diverse in their approaches to the subject that their concepts and terminologies commonly contrast strongly, the culmination of which should be the vigorous rejuvenation and reexamination of concepts and hypotheses in paleogeography and provinciality.
