Amazonia in its wider context: Delimitations, river, vegetation and landscapes.
Amazonia: Configuration of the sedimentary basins, the Andean foreland, and the significance of Andean tectonics on Amazonia's sedimentary record and the Amazon Fan.
Stratigraphy of Amazonia (synthesis of Neogene formations).
Neogene sedimentary environments (Early Miocene E-W fluvial system; Middle Miocene paleo-Amazon wetland (W-E flow); Late Miocene to Pliocene with inferences based on Amazon Fan/Ceara Rise data; the extent of fluvial and/or tidal environments and marine incursions).
The ancestral tropical rainforest and its evolution: A reconstruction based on a comparison of palynological data from Neogene to Present.
Origin and evolution of the (unique) endemic mollusc fauna of the paleo-Amazon wetland.
Ostracod speciation in the paleo-Amazon wetland.
A reconstruction of Neogene water chemistry and it implications for the climate in Amazonia.
Amazonia's fish fauna: Origins and distribution patters in relation to Andean tectonics, past marine incursions, and the paleo-Amazon wetland.
Vertebrate fauna in Neogene Amazonia: Evidence from the fossil record.
Molecular studies of present fauna groups and implications of the dynamic geological past on present distribution patterns.
Synthesis: Paleogeography of Amazonia with reference to the Amazon Fan and northern and southern South America.Discussion of Neogene to Present landscape evolution in Amazonia linked to species evolution and diversity.
"In this comprehensive book, a wealth of detailed informationintegrates what we know of geological and climatic processes andthe evolution of the tremendous biodiversity of the Amazonianregion . . . This book will be a vital reference for Amazonianresearchers and aficionados for many years to come. CurrentAmazonian researchers and any student contemplating graduate studyin Amazonian geology, paleontology, phylogeography, or evolutionshould read this volume from cover to cover." (The Quarterly Reviewof Biology, 1 June 2011)
