  Evolution of Fossil Ecosystems  (BHI #100128054)
Evolution of Fossil Ecosystems 
Detailed Images

Major advances in our understanding of the history of life on Earth have resulted from the study of exceptionally well-preserved fossil sites. Study of such sites from around the world and from different periods in geological time can provide a fairly complete picture of the evolution of ecosystems through the ages. With this aim in mind, the authors have brought together summaries of 14 of the better-known fossil Lagerstätten, beautifully illustrated throughout by over 250 color photographs and diagrams. Following a general introduction to fossil Lagerstätten, each chapter deals with a single fossil site and follows the same format: its evolutionary position and significance; its background sedimentology, stratigraphy and paleoenvironment; a description of the biota and paleoecology, and a comparison with other similar Lagerstätten.

There are appendices of further reading, relevant museums and suggestions for visiting the sites. This book will be of value to a wide range of students and professionals in palaeontology and related sciences, and to amateur enthusiasts.
