    Abstract

    Book synopsis: This volume records the papers given at The Fourth International Symposium on Permo-Carboniferous Continental Faunas, held at the National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh on 22-23 September 1992, in juxtaposition with the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Symposium on Volcanism and Early Terrestrial Biotas. The Carboniferous and Permian periods combined span about 117 millions years, thus representing about a quarter of the histroy of life on land, and most of the first third of the history of terrestrial vertebrates. In this perspective, the continental faunas of the Carboniferous and Permian have been relatively understudied. These symposia represent an effort, principally by European workers, to co-ordinate their activities and overcome this deficiency. Consequently, the first three symposia showed a natural emphasis on faunas of the limnic basins of Central Europe. The fourth symposium was the first to held outside Central Europe and had a different focus, comprising revisions of vertebrate material from the British Isles, North America and India. The contributions include taxonomic reviews combined with faunal studies (Schultze and Bolt, Sequeira, A.R. Milner, Werneburg and Schneider), morphological revisions (Poplin and Veran, Clack), a taxonomic revision (A.C. Milner) and a consideration of life-styles and phylogenies (Carroll).
