1. Neocatastrophism? [Catastrophism Geology $]
... determined era there were marked transformations of the animal world, where the sum of formations or systems would always add up to a category of a higher order. Stepanov mentions the palaeontologists A.H. Müller, N.D. Newell and G.S Simpson as further supporters of this point of view in the Western world. He rejects the interpretations proposed by them or us and ... Germany). Translation by V Axel Firsoff (Glastonbury, U.K.). Derek V. Ager of Swansea University College, UK, has been so kind to check the palaeontological terms and names. Abstract The acceptance of faunal discontinuities in the history of the Earth has lately been, somewhat disparagingly, described as neocatastrophism and represented as a regression to the ... Introduction D.L. Stepanov (1959a) has bestowed on me the somewhat doubtful honour of describing me as the "most important and consistent spokesman of the idea of neocatastrophism in contemporary palaeontology", By neocatastrophism in the sphere of palaeontology he understands the opinion expressed by me that in the geological evolution of organisms, and in the animal kingdom in particular, there ...

... , and in particular in trying to document examples of gradualistic evolution; stretches of the record where no changes took place tended to be dismissed as unimportant. However, the American palaeontologists, Niles Eldredge and Stephen Jay Gould, began to insist that "stasis is data". They argued that the fossil record has provided little evidence of phyletic gradualism; rather ... fill vacant ecological niches. Astronomical evidence suggests that at least some mass extinctions are likely to have resulted from the impacts of comets or asteroids upon the Earth, while geological and palaeontological evidence is consistent with the extinctions at the end of the Cretaceous Period and the Eocene Epoch having had such a cause.

... of a survey carried out by Antoni Hoffman and Matthew Nitecki, published in Geology in 1985, showed that at that time the impact hypothesis was accepted by 9% of British palaeontologists, 10% of Soviet geoscientists, 14% of German palaeontologists, 16% of Polish geoscientists and 31% of American geophysicists. A further 27% of British palaeontologists, ... exercises and further reading. The first half of the book gives a sound introduction to the principles of a variety of subjects, including ecology, evolution, petrology, stratigraphy, palaeontology, and structural geology. A whole chapter is devoted to plate tectonics, including continental drift, now surely established in principle if not in detail. The second half of the ... ). The glittering reputation of Stephen J. Gould (see C& C Review IX, pp. 45-48) has to some extent drawn public attention away from another American palaeontologist, Steven M. Stanley. Stanley teaches at John Hopkins University and is a Research Associate of the Smithsonian Institution. He has won the Schuchert Award of the Paleontological Society and ...

... the Department of Life Sciences, Trent Polytechnic. Interdisciplinary science, as readers of this journal know only too well, has its own special problems. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the field of evolutionary studies, which links geneticists and systematists on one side with palaeontologists on the other. The relationship has never been an easy one, and indeed started off on the wrong foot. Charles Darwin, having become convinced of the facts of evolution and of natural selection as a plausible mechanism, then decided for various complex reasons, ... , in the twentieth century was largely the work of geneticists, and again gradualistic ideas were stressed, evolution generally being thought to proceed by the gradual accumulation of small mutations. However, one of the contributors to the Modern Synthesis, George Gaylord Simpson, was a palaeontologist, and in his classic book Tempo and Mode in Evolution [2, published in 1944, he put forward the idea of quantum evolution, that very rapid evolution might take place within small populations. Simpson was also involved in the formation of the Society for ...

Fortey believes chance survival after catastrophes was a greater force in evolution than slow steady natural selection and, in fact, the greatest amount of natural selection has probably been between different palaeontologists fighting behind the scenes for the acceptance of their individual theories. Fortey mentions the changing ideas about the role of comets in evolution, how Hoyle and Velikovsky were pillaried for their ideas but now impacts and cometary bombardment are acceptable in the history of life on Earth ...

... were supposed to have evolved. Hickey and Dawson have been led to suggest that many types actually evolved in the forcing house of the north, in 'very large evolutionary leaps' and spread south where they later survived only in the relative ease of today's tropics. This palaeontological heresy has been met with 'vituperative attacks'. Hickey also observes that fossil leaf fragments indicate that the deciduous leaves were enormous, which he takes as a sign that they grew under conditions of continuous light, such as is experienced in the Arctic summer. A ... the great ice sheets of the ice age began and the area has been frozen ever since. Two researchers, however, have formed a different theory to account for the mix of flora types. Leo Hickey, a palaeobotanist, in collaboration with Mary Dawson, a palaeontologist, concludes that there were distinct anomalies in the Arctic fossil record. The proportion of the numbers of certain types of animals was unusual and the fossil assemblages were not synchronous with similar ones elsewhere; by some comparisons they dated from the early Eocene but by others ...
