An ideal companion to help you learn the basic facts about fossils and how to identify many of the common ones. Includes tips on responsible fossil collecting. This authoritative multi-touch book has been produced by The open University in collaboration with the Sedgwick Museum, Cambridge. It covers invertebrates, vertebrates and plants, with each group illustrated by a rich gallery of photographs. Some specimens are presented as 360-degree rotational objects and others are shown as high-resolution microscope views of thin sections.
