Field Guide to Fossils (National Audubon Society®)


Field Guide to Fossils (National Audubon Society®)

National Audubon Society® guides feature full-color glossy photographs that arrange specimens by similar appearance rather than by strict family grouping. This system is particularly useful when identifying fossils in the field, where several unrelated pieces may appear similar. Thiis, the first all-photographic field guide to cover fossils found throughout North America north of Mexico, includes nearly 500 full-color photographs identifying corals, trilobites, shells, teeth, bones, as well as fossil-bearing rocks and outcrop formations. The descriptive text includes information on size, geological period, geographical distribution, and ecology of the animal or plant before it was fossilized. In addition, the book provides lists of Geological Survey offices and major fossil collections, a geological time chart, and a guide to collecting and preserving fossils.
