The Fossil Guide is the ideal companion to help you learn the basics about fossils and how to identify many of the common ones. All the major groups of fossils are illustrated with clear diagrams and beautiful, pin-sharp photographs of real specimens. Suitable for beginners as well as those with some knowledge, this authoritative and helpful multi-touch book has been produced by the Open University, in collaboration with the Sedgwick Museum, Cambridge. It covers invertebrates, vertebrates and plants, and each fossil group is illustrated with a gallery of photos. Some specimens are presented as 360-degree rotational objects to provide a tactile feel, and the detailed structure of other fossils is captured with high-resolution views of thin sections under a microscope. The Introduction includes useful advice and tips on responsible fossil collecting. As well as being suitable for the educated amateur, this book will also be useful for teachers and should provide a stimulus for children interested in fossils and the wonderful world of geology.
