Because of its unique geographic and temporal position, the La Venta badlands in central Columbia hold special significance for understanding the evolution of vertebrate faunas in South America. John Flynn, Curator of Geology at The Field Museum, and other contributors present detailed information and interpretation about the paleobiology and environment of La Venta animals. Includes taxonomic index.
