Edward J. Petuch to interpret this history

The rich fossil record of the Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains of the United States is a gold mine for interested scientists. The last thirty million years of Earth history are superbly chronicled by a succession of fossil assemblages extending from the St. Lawrence River to Florida. Marine scientists, paleontologists, and systematic biologists alike need a thorough guide to interpret this history

Cenozoic Seas: The View . I found "Cenozoic Seas" to be incredibly organized - each area of the Southeast USA is systematically presented in a manner that even a novice such as myself could understand. Dr. Petuch's presentation of the placement of the ancient seas of the Southeastern USA clarified for me just how much change has taken place in this area, both in geographic and evolutionary terms. Of particular interest to me is his presentation of the formations in Okeechobee County, where I happen to live.

Paleoseas of Cenozoic Eastern North America.

The rich fossil record of the Atlantic and Gulf coastal plains of the United States is a gold mine for interested scientists. Paleoseas of Cenozoic Eastern North America. Biogeography of the Eastern American Paleoseas.

However, the latest palaeogeographical model proposed by Petuch, especially in his later works (Petuch, 1988Petuch,, 2004), has been criticized (Allmon, 2005). Here, we will only discuss Petuch's concepts in relation to the study area. Southern Caribbean Neogene palaeobiogeography revisited. New data from the Pliocene of Cubagua, Venezuela.

Cenozoic Seas: The View from Eastern North America analyzes the changing geography, the arrival and departures of ecosystems and species, and the affect of climate on living things. The author classifies all of the region's fossil-bearing formations and their contents within a logical, descriptive framework of space and time, providing a clear path for those studying evolution and extinction within specific communities of organisms.

Dr. Petuch has the ability to make what might seem a mundane subject - how did one of our states come into being - a fascinating historical detective story. Petuch is now ivory-tower intellectual. He has been an active field worker in Florida's numerous fossil-rich deposits since the mid-1970s. Based on his knowledge of mollusks and their habitat requirements (he's also a marine biologist), he has used the record of molluscan fossils to reconstruct the way the Florida peninsula was built over the last 30 million or so years. It's a fascinating story, beautifully constructed and marvelously illustrated with photos of the fossil mollusks that help tell the story and numerous maps that show how Florida was built, layer by layer, over the millenia.

The Geology of the Everglades and Adjacent Areas, by Edward J. Petuch is another in a series of books written by this author. These books have inspired an interest in Florida's extinct marine life in many former collectors of living seashells who now focus on the amazing marine fossils that are found in Florida. These books have definitely expanded my understanding of the relationships of living mollusk species through the evolution of their ancestors. I am looking forward to Dr. Petuch's next book.

I am not a scientist, nor a professional shell collector - but I am very interested in the environment of ancient Florida as an amateur fossil collector, and Dr. Petuch's book has helped me gain a greater understanding of that environment. I found "Cenozoic Seas" to be incredibly organized - each area of the Southeast USA is systematically presented in a manner that even a novice such as myself could understand. Dr. Petuch's presentation of the placement of the ancient seas of the Southeastern USA clarified for me just how much change has taken place in this area, both in geographic and evolutionary terms. Of particular interest to me is his presentation of the formations in Okeechobee County, where I happen to live. I have had several opportunities to visit the Ruck's Pit in northern Okeechobee County, and I have found Dr. Petuch's book to accurately interpret for me what was found in this area of the state 3 million years ago. "Cenozoic Seas" is a very well-written, systematic, and (from my experience) accurate presentation of ancient Florida (as well as other locations throughout the South). I have seen for myself the diversity of species in Ruck's Pit, especially in the cowrie shells found there in the pit...even someone as untrained as myself can see the variation that occurs in this location with its particular species of cowries. I highly recommend this book to any person who is interested in the fossil shell history of Florida as well as any of the other areas of the Southeastern USA. Without question, this is a unique and compelling book that is a "must-have" for any person who has a serious interest in collecting the fossil shell species of southern Florida.

Ed Petuch presents a vast amount of information in a very well organized, readable form. Hundreds of fossils are beautifully illustrated on the 98 plates. Many species and genera are illustrated and described for the first time. The changes in the coastal waters of eastern North America during the last 30 million years are well documented in this book.
Ed uses drawings and vivid descriptions to detail the physical changes to the coast, but he goes one step further by describing the fossil communities that existed in specific areas at specific times. As a fossil collector, I appreciate the way Ed brings the fossil shells to life by using his knowledge of modern marine biology to describe the physical environment and the interactions among the fossil organisms. The book has proven to be a valuable resource for the identification of fossils, but more that that, it has given me an understanding of how these fossils acted while they were alive.
I highly recommend this book. I feel that reading this book has increased my understanding of paleontology and it will be a valuable part of my reference library for years to come.

This is a volume of excellent pioneering research of the marine community evolution of North American east coast biota and habitat during the last half of the Cenozoic era. Particularly of interest to me are the documented changes through the sea-level fluctuations during the ice ages of the last two million years and their implications to our current changing environment.

Profusely illustrated with charts, drawings and pictures this book will be a valuable asset to any serious researcher or even collector.
  • OCARO
Dr. Petuch is an example of one of the best research scientist of today. His work continues to bring forth the much needed descriptions of many new species of fossil shells being found in Florida. I am glad there is someone out there that is finally putting these species in their right order and placing them in the right geological frame work. Thank You Dr. Petuch.
