Book Description

The study of southern African Mesozoic and Tertiary strata has long had a low priority in both academic and commercial circles, and with the notable exception of diamonds, rocks of this age have not been thought to contain much worth digging up. This reference list contains approximately 750 entries and provides a review and synthesis of data on the Mesozoic and Tertiary rocks of southern Africa, seen in the context of Gondwana fragmentation.
