  What Your Fossils Can Tell You - Vertebrate Morphology, Pathology, and Cultural Modification  (BHI #100128421)
What Your Fossils Can Tell You - Vertebrate Morphology, Pathology, and Cultural Modification 
Detailed Images

Written primarily for the avid amateur and beginning professional paleontologist, this pictorial guide offers both experienced and novice fossil hunters and collectors the information necessary to correctly identify and interpret the significance of their discoveries.

Amateur fossil hunters are presented with the tools they need to recognize significant, scientifically relevant finds and the knowledge of how to collect vertebrate fossils responsibly and legally. Professionals in the field may also use this book as a pictorial resource to assist them in bridging the fields of pathology and archaeology as they relate to paleontology.

Robert Sinibaldi, in informal collaboration with a number of fossil experts, has compiled materials with a wide appeal. He explains many of the complex bumps, grooves, markings, and other anomalies that occur on fossil bones and teeth. A wealth of photographs helps readers visually identify these features and apply related concepts to their personal collections. Scientific and common terms are paired whenever possible, and unusual pathological and culturally modified specimens are pictured next to "normal" specimens to highlight their diagnostic features.

Along with many common specimens, scores of unique fossil items are debuted here in print for the first time.
