Book Description

This volume contains a range of topics from quaternary vertebrate palaeontology in Argentina and biostratigraphy of uppermost Cenozoic in the Pampas. It determines the ice-rafted lithoclasts by the observation on thin slides, the latter issued from the rock sustratum of the Antarctic continent.
