Description: This is a clear and authoritative introduction to fossils, their study and their use in reconstructing the history of life on Earth.
Synopsis: This is a clear and authoritative introduction to fossils, their study and their use in reconstructing the history of life on Earth. Paleontologist Richard Fortey explains in accessible language what fossils are, how they form, and how they help us to understand Earth's geological past and the emergence of life. Drawing on the latest information, he discusses evolution and extinction, the economic uses of fossils, such as oil and coal, as well as offering advice for making a fossil collection. Extensively illustrated throughout, Fossils is an up-to-date guide to our understanding of the fossil record and the significance of fossil finds. It will appeal to all those with an interest in our past and will encourage the reader to study further and enjoy our geological legacy.
