Fossils at a glance. 2nd ed

Milsom, C.V and Rigby, S (2009) Fossils at a glance. 2nd ed. Wiley-Blackwell. ISBN 9781405193368


Fossils provide a powerful tool for the study of the nearly 4–billion–year history of life, and its role in the evolution of Earth systems. They also provide important data for evolutionary studies, and contribute to our understanding of the extinction of organisms and the origins of modern biodiversity. Fossils At A Glance is written for students taking an introductory level course in paleontology. Short chapters introduce the main topics in the modern study of fossils. The most important fossil groups are discussed, from microfossils through invertebrates to vertebrates and plants, followed by a brief narrative of life on Earth.
