Paleontologists scour the earth in search of buried fossils that can help us understand what happened on Earth millions, and even billions, of years ago — and what may happen in the future. Take a close-up look at more than 300 amazing specimens in Fossils.
An in-depth examination of fossils, from preserved trees and grasses to mollusks, trilobites, fish, and dinosaurs, discovered on every continent.
Each fossil is illustrated with a clear and detailed photograph, accompanied by informed, accessible text and a table of information featuring its scientific name, order and family, habitat, distribution, geological period, and dimensions.
This essential book complements existing paleontology guides by providing a side-by-side comparison of the worlds fossil types and makes an excellent pocket reference guide for students and general readers alike.
