In this paper we review several important issues related to unraveling the complexities of integrated U–Pb age and Hf isotope datasets, especially with respect to understanding crust–mantle evolution. In particular, we address the potential difficulty of assigning accurate initial Hf isotope compositions as well as some of the inherent problems associated with so-called “depleted-mantle model ages”. Finally, we make some suggestions regarding the optimum analytical approach and presentation of the Hf (and Nd) isotope data to obtain the clearest record of Earth's chemical evolution
