Until now, locating a reference that identifies and classifies fossils found around the world has been harder than uncovering the finds themselves. This book solves that problem by covering everything you would want to know about fossils. It will help you quickly develop a familiarity with the broad fossil spectrum of both extinct and extant life forms. Newly discovered specimens and specimens rarely presented outside scientific journals are included, complete with typical "index" fossils. This text is profusely illustrated with more than 1300 photographs and line drawings. Numerous specimens have been photographed from several perspectives for a multi-dimensional view. The illustrations in and of themselves are quite aesthetic, showing the beauty of nature's design. A comprehensive faunal listing for each fossil phylum further helps classify and catalog fossils; figure captions provide even more details. The handy Guide spans everything from the lowest forms of life--the protozoa--to the highest forms of mammals. This is the most up-to-date and complete compendium of facts available about each of the varied fossil flora and fauna within the rock strata of our planet. If you are a researcher, teacher, experienced amateur, weekend fossil collector, or student, this book will excite and entertain you while helping you better focus your glimpses into the past.
