قطب جنوب تغییرات زیست محیطی بسیاری به خود دیده است.این سرزمین سرشار از برف و یخ ، روزگاری دربردارنده انواع گونه‌های‌ زیستی بسیاری بوده است. بهشتی که به زیر برف و یخ فرو رفته است.
نویسندگان کتاب «منجمد در زمان: زندگی ماقبل تاریخ در قطب جنوب» ، پروفسور «جان دی. لانگ» و پروفسور «جفری دی. استیل‌وِل» با ارائه تصاویر رنگی ناب در سرتاسر کتاب و مرور کلی از اکتشاف قطب جنوب به تغییرات عمده اقلیمی این سرزمین می‌پردازند.از فسیل‌های بسیار قدیمی، دوزیستان غول پیکر و خزندگان مودار، دریاچه‌های آتشفشانی و حکمرانی دایناسورهای نخستین، خزندگان غول پیکری که در دریاهای جنوبی شنا می‌کردند، از پرندگان قاتل، پنگوئن‌های غول پیکر و پستانداران اولیه و … سخن می‌گویند تا برسند به تنوع زندگی و حیات زیستی در جنوب یخ زده امروزین.
کتاب در 13 فصل تدوین یافته و دارای توضیحات روان به همراه تصاویر جالب و  گویا می‌باشد.

پروفسور «جان دی. لانگ»، دیرینه‌شناس دایناسورها و مدرس و پژوهشگر دانشکده زمین و محیط زیست در دانشگاه موناش (Monash University‎)، ملبورن استرالیا می‌باشد. فعالیت میدانی و پژوهشگری عمده وی جمع‌آوری فسیل در سراسر استرالیا، جنوب شرقی آسیا، آفریقای جنوبی، چین و قطب جنوب بوده است. کتاب و مقالات بسیاری دارد و جوایز متعددی نیز دریافت کرده است.متصدی دیرینه‌شناسی دایناسورها و مهره‌داران موزه استرالیا نیز بوده است.

پروفسور «جفری دی. استیل‌وِل» استاد ارشد دانشکده علوم زمین دانشگاه موناش و همکار پژوهشی افتخاری موزه استرالیا است.متخصص در اکوسیستم‌های اقیانوس اطلس جنوبی است.وی نویسنده پنج مونوگراف و بیش از 60 مقاله پژوهشی معتبر به ویژه فسیل‌های قطب جنوب می‌باشد.

📖Description

Presents a comprehensive overview of the fossil record of Antarctica framed within its changing environmental settings.

No other continent on Earth has undergone such radical environmental changes as Antarctica. In its transition from rich biodiversity to the barren, cold land of blizzards we see today, Antarctica provides a dramatic case study of how subtle changes in continental positioning can affect living communities, and how rapidly catastrophic changes can come about. Antarctica has gone from paradise to polar ice in just a few million years, a geological blink of an eye when we consider the real age of Earth.

Frozen in Time presents a comprehensive overview of the fossil record of Antarctica framed within its changing environmental settings, providing a window into a past time and environment on the continent. It reconstructs Antarctica’s evolving animal and plant communities as accurately as the fossil record permits.

The story of how fossils were first discovered in Antarctica is a triumph of human endeavour. It continues today with modern expeditions going out to remote sites every year to fill in more of the missing parts of the continent’s great jigsaw of life.

Authors

Jeffrey Stilwell is currently a Senior Lecturer and Leader of the Applied Palaeontology and Basin Studies Group in the School of Geosciences at Monash University, and Honorary Research Associate at the Australian Museum, specialising in ancient greenhouse Earth environments and equator-to-south-polar ecosystems. He is the author of five monographs and more than 60 peer-reviewed research papers, including many on the fossil record of Antarctica. He has participated on five major expeditions to the Antarctic Peninsula and Transantarctic Mountains/McMurdo Sound.

Applied Palaeontology and Basin Studies

Jeff's current research embraces the integration of palaeontological data in and 'picture science', especially the potential to employ applied palaeontology methods in deciphering ancient greenhouse earth systems and their petroleum prospectivity and predictability. Jeff is particularly interested in south polar greenhouse earth ecosystems with current projects in Antarctica, New Zealand-Chatham Islands and Australia. He leads several large research teams as CI1 (including many associates and graduate students), relating to the first fossiliferous amber from Southern Gondwana with the Australian Research Council (ARC-DP1412515) and industry work with a portfolio of companies, including Shell International that represents multi-million dollar frontier exploration wells in Brazil (chief investigator of well studies) and projects with RMA West Linapacan, Karoon Gas, Cue Energy, Benaris Group, Origin Energy, and Shell Australia - all with significant impacts.

 


John Long is an Australian palaeontologist who is currently the Vice President of Research and Collections at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. He has authored some 26 books, including The Rise of Fishes and Feathered Dinosaurs. His research has focused on the early evolution of fishes, especially from Australia and Antarctica.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Prof John Long researches the early evolution of vertebrates in order to unravel the stages of how the modern vertebrate body plan was assembled.

Many parts of our human anatomy had their origins back in the Early Palaeozoic (540-350 million years ago). This was when jaws, teeth, paired limbs, ossified brain-cases, intromittent genital organs, chambered hearts and paired lungs all appeared in early fishes.

He has conducted field work collecting fossils throughout Australia, SE Asia, South Africa, China and Antarctica.

Prof Long has served as the Vice President of Research and Collections at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (2009-2012), Head of Sciences at Museum Victoria (2004-2009) and as Curator of Vertebrate Palaeontology at the Western Australian Museum (1989-2004). He is currently the President of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (2014-2016) and the Vice President of the Royal Society of South Australia (2014-2016).

For the past 30 years Prof Long has been collecting fossils from the Gogo sites in northern Western Australia, whose perfectly preserved 3-D fish fossils have yielded many significant discoveries, including mineralised soft tissues, the origins of complex sexual reproduction in vertebrates.

His discoveries include the State Fossil Emblem of Western Australia (Mcnamaraspis), the mother fish with the world's oldest vertebrate embryo (Materpiscis), a tetrapod-like fish with large holes on top of its head for air-breathing (Gogonasus), and the oldest evidence for copulation in vertebrates (Microbrachius).

He has also worked on fossil heritage issues, working with Government agencies over the years to help solve fossil-related crime and repatriate fossils smuggled out of other countries including China and Argentina.

Prof Long is an author of many adult and children's books, including non-fiction and fiction, covering topics as diverse as evolution, dinosaurs, fossil fishes, prehistoric mammals, travels in Antarctica, the illegal fossil trade, climate change and the birth of human civilisation.

His most recent books include " Dawn of the Deed -The Prehistoric Origins of Sex" (University of Chicago Press, 2012) which gives an account of the Gogo discoveries and explores their relevance and other fossils showing evidence for sexual behaviour for understanding sex in an evolutionary context, and "Frozen in Time - Prehistoric Life in Antarctica" (with Jeffrey Stilwell, CSIRO Publishing 2011).

Professor John Long will make two trips to Antarctica in search of transitional tetrapods
