Fossil Invertebrates

ISBN 978 0 565 09183 5 
Unravel and interpret our rich fossil records with Fossil Invertebrates, a marvellously detailed and accessible resource. Fossil Invertebrates is a window into the ancient Earth when the seas teemed with ammonites, corals, sponges, molluscs, crinoids and trilobites. The sheer abundance of their fossils reflects the fact that many invertebrates, with solid, decay-resistant shells, were perfectly designed to become fossils. Many of these fossilised creatures have close relatives alive today, and the book demonstrates how the fossil record can shed light on today's fauna. When searching at almost any fossil site, a collector is more likely to come across an invertebrate fossil than any other kind. This book, the only one of its kind on the subject of invertebrate fossils, is suitable for both academic and general readership, and covers all major groups of fossil invertebrates, providing illustrated descriptions of selected genera.
