This is often the 1st textual content to mix either paleontology and paleobiology. conventional textbooks deal with those individually, regardless of the hot development to mix them in educating. It bridges the distance among in basic terms theoretical paleobiology and in simple terms descriptive invertebrate paleontology books. The textual content is focused at undergraduate geology and biology majors, with the emphasis on organisms, instead of useless gadgets to be defined and catalogued.

Heine and Heine (2002) pointed out that the Late Pleistocene slackwater deposits of the Kuiseb Valley in the Namib Desert were likely deposited in areas of the floodplain that are sheltered from high-velocity flood flows and thus represent extreme flood events. , 1999b, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005). It is the aim of this paper, to present additional evidence that slackwater deposits and floodout deposits of the Namib Desert valleys are caused by Late Quaternary palaeofloods.
