A comprehensive yet compact guide for laboratory, classroom, and field use, Handbook of Paleozoology covers the morphology, classification, and distribution of ancient animal life throughout the world. This unique, heavily illustrated compendium presents useful information in a ready-reference format for everyone who studies, collects, and works with fossils.

Unlike most general accounts of paleozoology, the Handbook deals with both vertebrates and invertebrates. Physical features and taxonomical classifications are clearly and concisely described, with geographical and temporal ranges that enable the fossils to be located in geological time. More than 170 multipart line drawings appear throughout the book, comparing different groups and offering detailed views of particular species. The book provides a superb introduction for students and an excellent field consultation and review resource for specialists.

Language Notes:

Text: English, German (translation)

From Library Journal:

This compact volume contains a wealth of information on fossil animals, about evenly divided between invertebrates and vertebrates. The text is complemented by a large number of labeled line drawings showing morphological details of the described organisms. Considering the magnitude of the work, the text is reasonably up-to-date, though specialists will find cause for many quibbles. The best use for the book would be as a quick reference or as an accompaniment to classroom lectures. The telegraphic style lessens the book's utility for casual or introductory reading. Margery C.
