Fossils

    By

    This comprehensive pocket guide is the perfect introduction to finding, identifying, and collecting fossils. It features more than 500 species of plant and animal fossils, from trilobites to dinosaurs, to fossil trees. Over 1,000 photographs, most of them annotated, help you to pick out a fossil's most telling features, while a colour illustration shows the fossil as a living plant or animal. A colour-coded table in each species entry encapsulates vital information - such as scientific name, age, and habitat - for quick, easy reference. To help with the tricky initial stages of identification, the book also provides a diagram that makes it easy to recognize a fossil and place it in its correct group. DK Handbooks: Fossils is the ideal one-stop introduction to the fascinating world of fossil hunting and collecting.
