Evolution of Land and Life in Oman : An 800 Million Year Story

This book explores the geological and ecological changes in the land of Oman over the last 800 million years.

It retraces the notable correlation between geological formations, seismological activities, climate, fauna and flora throughout the geologic eons, namely Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, Cenozoic and the Humans era (Neolithic era, Bronze Age, Iron Age).

This book describes the impact of geological phenomena on the development and evolution of life in Oman as well as the formation of Oman's natural landscapes.

It also focuses on the organisms living in Oman, and climatic changes that shaped Homo sapiens' distribution in different Omani regions, which led in turn to the creation of discrete civilizations.
