About the Authors
  • Palaeontology has developed from a descriptive science to an analytical science used to interpret relationships between earth and life history. This book highlights its key role in the study of the evolving earth, life history and environmental processes. After an introduction to fossils and their classification, each of the principal fossil groups are studied in detail, covering their biology, morphology, classification, palaeobiology and biostratigraphy. The latter sections focus on the applications of fossils in the interpretation of earth and life processes and environments.

    • Emphasis on applications of palaeobiology and stratigraphy
    • Contains numerous case histories
    • Broad in scope - the applications will be useful to petroleum, mineral, mining and engineering geologists; environmental scientists and environmental archaeologists
