The Extinction of Australian Megafauna When humans first arrived in Australia around 60, years ago, they found a continent covered in rainforest, much of which had existed for million years. In addition to rainforest, the continent was populated by megafauna that included the Diprotodon, a wombat-like marsupial the size of a car and the Megalania, a crocodile sized lizard that hunted on land. In most of the western world, it has been common to blame humans for hunting megafauna on other continents to extinction. In Australia, however, dominant ideologies propose that humans were in harmony with the landscape. Consequently, the extinction of the megafauna tends to be explained in ways that preserve these ideologies.

Early Cretaceous polar faunas of Gondwana and Laurasia and their environmental setting are also emphasized - with studies involving fluvial sedimentology, palynology and stable isotope Geochemistry, the general morphology and microanatomy of bones and teeth and the physiological adaptation of the biota to high latitude, extreme environments. Other programmes examine the use of vertebrates in biostratigraphy especially in terrestrial sequences and the late impact of humans on the Australian megafauna. Dinosaurs of Darkness By Thomas H.
