This accessible introduction to the many facets of palaeontology points out the spectacular variation within the subject - from algae to a whale's ear bone, trees from the Carboniferous era to a relatively recent hominid. The handbook illustrates and describes 300 fossils (one per page) with details of their scientific and common names, distribution and time scale, notes on the animals or plants fossilized and a colour photograph.
