About this title

Synopsis:

About 1,000 representative species have been pictured, each in its community with definite geological provenance; in many instances the same or closely similar forms will be found in most parts of the world.

Review:



"This book is the first attempt to portray communities of marine invertebrates from every geological system since the Precambrian. It contains 125 block-diagrams of fossil assemblages, each picturing animals and/or plants in life-position, in many cases their position when buried as fossils and their appearance in cross-section in the sediment. Each assemblage is described and for each system there is a general introduction. The book owes a great deal to Mrs. E. Winson for her excellent drawings."

"About 1,000 representative species have been pictured, each in its community with definite geological provenance; in many instances the same or closely similar forms will be found in most parts of the world. Seven experts divide the task among themselves by long periods; the editor is a distinguished paleontologist at Oxford. There is a valuable introduction to the principles of paleoecology, with a classification scheme for plants and animals... [the book's] 'main purpose is to educate and stimulate.' It is an unusual success on those terms."
- Philip Morrison, Scientific American
