11. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 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 ... . 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 ...
12. 'No Impact': René Gallant (1906-1985) [Books]
... as is well known, gave them extra-terrestrial causes. Gallant proposed to study the whole problem in the light of the information which, in turn, archaeology, geology, palaeontology and astronomy might furnish. He had been inspired by Schaeffer's book of 1948. Twenty-five letters from Schaeffer to Gallant survive, written between 1957 and 1963. These show ... must have had some biological and geological consequences'. One of these was to have caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. Here Gallant quoted H. Linger, a Swiss palaeontologist writing in 1961, in his support. Finally Gallant wrote that the survivors of such events would not be the fittest' merely the luckiest'  . ...

... 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 ... 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 ...

... , until publication of the hard facts of the Alvarez work on the iridium enrichment at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary. Once catastrophism began to look respectable in the geological and palaeontological disciplines then the astronomers apparently felt free to jump on the bandwagon. But has anything really changed? The now acceptable geological catastrophes are dated in millions of years - ... with a regular periodicity of 26 million years. The improbability of regular periodicity of any kind being a function of biological evolution itself led them to suspect an extraterrestrial cause. Palaeontologists are not agreed on the role of outside influences on extinctions or the mode and rate of evolution. Some still hold fast to a Darwinian gradualistic model influenced only by ...

... ! NOT SCIENTIFIC - New Scientist , 17/7 /80, p. 215 Jill Abery writes to tell us of an article by Dr. Beverly Halstead, defending palaeontology and the concept of Darwinian evolution against the charge that the latter is not a scientific theory but a metaphysical one. This gave rise to a page of letters ( ... , lies somewhere between the two extremes. One letter in particular (G . K. Gray, Manchester) sums it up very well, pointing out that not all palaeontologists follow Halstead's belief in evolution as a development through a continuum', but instead that biological evolution is not continuous but is quantised' - which is a logical consequence ...

... however, "The Forms of Life Changing Almost Simultaneously throughout the World" -the title of a section in The Origin of Species. Darwin wrote: "Scarcely any palaeontological discovery is more striking than the fact that the forms of life change almost simultaneously throughout the world." This appears baffling, because according to his theory "the ... title of another section in The Origin of Species). "The abrupt manner in which whole groups of species suddenly appear in certain formations, has been urged by several palaeontologists-for instance, by Agassiz, Pictet, and Sedgwick-as a fatal objection to the belief in the transmutation of species. If numerous species, belonging to the same genera or ...
