Fossil Ecosystems of North America -Book 
Detailed Images

Following the success of their book Evolution of Fossil Ecosystems, authors John R. Nudds and Paul A. Selden have written a new volume concentrating on fourteen North American fossil ecosystems.

Chapters place each biota in its evolutionary context and covers the study of its locality, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and paleoenvironment. An appendix lists relevant museums and gives suggestions for visiting the sites.

This book contains a wealth of information. Beautifully illustrated and presented in a user-friendly style, this book is both a pleasant read and a useful study aid. 

Sites discussed in this book include The Gunflint Chert, Mistaken Point, The Burgess Shale, Beecher's Trilobite Bed, The Bertie Waterlime, Gilboa, Mazon Creek, The Chinle Group, The Morrison Formation, Hell Creek Formation, The Green River Formation, Florissant, Dominican Amber, and Rancho La Brea.
