O knihe

The Apennines or Apennine Mountains (Greek: ¿pe¿¿¿¿¿¿; Latin: Appenninus - in both cases used in the plural; Italian: Appennini) is a mountain range stretching c. 1,200 km from the north to the south of Italy along its east coast, traversing the entire peninsula, and forming the backbone of the country. The range characteristically consists of limestone and related sedimentary strata believed to have been uplifted near the end of the Cretaceous era when the African plate began to gently collide with the eastern part of the European plate. The same tectonic episode also formed the Alps. The Apennines strata are of particular significance in oceanic anoxic events studies, having triggered off a three-decades-long series of research when a metre thick band of black shale matched core sample from the Pacific ocean signalling a worldwide event.
