The 11 papers in this collection are largely, though not exclusively, derived from presentations to a June 2012 conference held at Gubbio, Italy to discuss the stratigraphy, sedimentology, paleontology, geodynamics, and structural evolution of the Umbria-Marche Apennines, particularly the Gubbio sections.
