"Fossils: A Photographic Field Guide" will appeal to anyone interested in uncovering the many mysteries of the subject. Easy to use, highly informative and illustrated throughout with amazing colour photographs, this title covers all classifications of fossils, with more than 190 fossils from around the world featured. Information given for each fossil includes its genus name, the main identifying characteristics of the genus, its maximum or average size, information about its occurrence, and general information pertaining to either the genus or the particular specimen featured.

A geological timescale is also provided, to help the reader to gain a sense of temporal perspective, and also to complete the identification process.
