Dear Taxacomers,

I'm looking for a short, inexpensive book--or collection of articles--on
the fundamentals of plate tectonics.  In my History of Life course, I now
cover some introductory material on Geology without a common source of
readings.  I'd like to have one book which I can ask the students to buy
and read, but don't feel justified in having them shell out 50-75 bucks for
a Geology textbook, only a third of which will be used.

At the moment I put an array of Geology texts on reserve in the library,
but records show that very few students take advantage of them.

Taxacom might not be the right place to ask about this, but taxonomists
tend to be broadly educated and someone out there might be able to help.
