9780124046290: Evolution of Fossil Ecosystems, Second Edition

The first edition of Evolution of Fossil Ecosystems was widely praised for its coverage and approach in describing and illustrating 14 well-known fossil sites from around the world. The authors have now updated the text and added 6 new chapters with many new color illustrations. Following a general introduction to fossil Lagerstätten, each chapter deals with a single site and follows the same format: its evolutionary position and significance; its background sedimentology, stratigraphy and palaeoenvironment; a description of the biota and palaeoecology; a comparison with other similar Lagerstätten; and a list of relevant museums and suggestions for visiting the sites. This study of exceptionally well-preserved fossil sites from different periods in geological time provides a picture of the evolution of ecosystems through the ages.

  • Covers several sites that are not listed in other Lagerstatten books making this the most comprehensive book on the topic;
  • Beautifully illustrated throughout with more than 450 color photographs and diagrams;
  • Provides value to a wide range of students and professionals in palaeontology and related sciences.
