Summary "The influence of Bill Bishop is reflected throughout this volume, even though his sudden death stopped a brilliant research career in full flow. Most of the authors are connected with Bill as research collaborators and students, or as the next generation of students of these supervisors."--BOOK JACKET. "The volume begins with an appreciation of Bill's life and work; the research contributions that then follow are arranged in three thematic sections, each with a scene-setting editorial overview:"--BOOK JACKET. "Part 1. Early Miocene of Uganda, including the first full account and discussion of the recently discovered oldest known hominoid Morotopithecus bishopi."--BOOK JACKET. "Part 2. Middle Miocene to Pleistocene of the Tugen Hills, Kenya, a comprehensive account of the hominids and their environmental context from members of the Baringo Basin Project."--BOOK JACKET
"Part 3. Quaternary Environments, with particular emphases on the English Midlands, western Scotland and southern Africa."--BOOK JACKET. "Throughout this commemorative volume, the determination of editors and authors to place the results of specialist research into their environmental context is perhaps the clearest indication of the visionary influence of Bill Bishop."--BOOK JACKET
