Product description

From the Inside Flap

Our complex and dynamic planet is constantly changing and challenging our understanding of the world around us. Where can we find the world's oldest rocks and minerals? What drives Earth's largest volcanic eruptions? And how can we trace the link between the evolution of life and the changing global environment?
Earth in 100 Groundbreaking Discoveries is a fascinating introduction to the modern science of our world. Intriguing, exciting and accessible, this stunningly illustrated book profiles 100 of the most important ideas and events in our planet's 4.5-billion-year history through the very latest geological research and palaeontological evidence.
From early theories about the age of the Earth to the most recent discoveries about the evolution of our planet and its future development, each of these key ideas is explained through clear, authoritative text accompanied by beautiful images. And this is not just the story of Earth, but also of its abundant life - from the single-celled organisms of Precambrian seas to the giant dinosaurs, and from the first appearance of complex life to the ancient cave art and genetic discoveries that are shaking long-held beliefs about the development of our own species.
From tectonic uplift to the atmosphere and from oceans to organisms, this fascinating book offers a concise and thought-provoking look at the cutting-edge science that is transforming the way we look at our world.
