Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Written primarily for the avid amateur and beginning paleontologist, ""What Your Fossils Can Tell You"" offers both experienced and novice fossil hunters and collectors the information needed to correctly identify and interpret the significance of their discoveries. 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 related to paleontology. Amateur fossil hunters are presented with the tools they need to recognized significant finds and knowledge of how to collect vertebrate fossils responsibly and legally. 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 of this title helps readers visually identify these features and apply related concepts to their personal collections. Along with many common specimens, scores of unique fossil items appear here in print for the first time.
