Written by highly-qualified Argenitne scientists and scholars, this book focuses on the uninterrupted geological and palaeontological record of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego since the Miocene-Pliocene boundary to the arrival of Man and Modern Times. This region is an outstanding area for research, with significant interest at the international level. It provides an updated overview of the scientific work in all related fields with a strong palaeoclimatic approach. Patagonia has also been a sort of a "palaeoclimatic bridge" between the Antartic Peninsula and the more northerly landmasses, since the final opening of the Drake Passage in the Middle Miocene. Timely and comprehensive, The Late Cenozoic of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego is the only monographic book written in English.
