Introducing Palaeontology is an excellent book, full of attractive diagrams and photographs, coupled with short, waffle-free sections. The combination of short, snappy chapters and interesting scientific concepts create a book that is perfect for anyone new to the science of palaeontology,whether they be an enthusiastic amateur, a prospective student or an undergraduate just starting out in the field. Geological Magazine 'There has been a gap in the market for a long time, for a book that provides a simple introduction to fossils, this title fills that gap admirably!

The earliest life forms were bacteria and algae; these produced the oxygen that enabled more complex life forms to develop.

The history of life has always been influenced by the history of the Earth 3. Fossils (remains or evidence of life 5000 years old) are traces of that past and are a fundamental element for establishing the minimum age of groups and the rates of evolution of each (Pascual & OrtizJaureguizar, 2007;Wyse Jackson, 2010).

PAPERBACK by Wyse Jackson, Patrick; Murray, John. The second part introduces the major fossil groups taking a systematic view from algae and plants, through the numerous examples of invertebrate animals, to the vertebrates and finally to man's ancestors.

Life on Earth can be traced back over three billion years into the past. Many examples of the Earth's former inhabitants are to be found in rocks, preserved as beautiful and fascinating fossils.

Life on Earth can be traced back over three thousand million years into the past. Many examples of the Earth's past inhabitants are to be found in rocks, preserved as beautiful and fascinating fossils. The earliest life forms were bacteria and algae; these produced the oxygen that enabled more complex life forms to develop. About 600 million years ago multi-cellular organisms appeared on Earth, some of which could protect themselves with hard parts such as shells. Many of these life forms were readily fossilized and are used to subdivide geological time. Numerous species have evolved and most are now extinct. Lineages can be traced and extinctions explained as a consequence of terrestrial and extra-terrestrial events. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and explanatory diagrams Introducing Palaeontology provides a concise and accessible introduction to the science of palaeontology. The book is divided into two parts. The first explains what a fossil is; how fossils came to be preserved; how they are classified; and what information they can tell scientists about the rocks in which they are found. The second part introduces the major fossil groups taking a systematic view from algae and plants, through the numerous examples of invertebrate animals, to the vertebrates and finally to man's ancestors. Technical terms are kept to a minimum and a glossary is provided.

This is your basic introductory book on paleontology intended for first-year college students. Much of the information it covers is fairly basic, though I did encounter fun tidbits of information I didn't know about every once in awhile. What really makes this book stand out, however, are its full-color diagrams and photographs. The outline and organization of the book make it easy to read, and the bolded vocabulary words would be helpful to a student learning about paleontology. I think it is one of the best Kindle books about paleontology out right now, especially considering its mixed-media format and the low listing price. My only wish is that the chapter on Reptiles (and dinosaurs in general) would be much longer, as this is a popular topic. Otherwise, this is an excellent book about paleontology I would recommend to general readers.

  • Duktilar
Very informative and an excellent introduction to the science.
  • JoJoshura
Very good read, deeper than I anticipated. Good book for early college students. Very detailed, covering all the major niches of paleontology.
  • Alien
Covers the range of topics I expected, but not as much detail as I wanted.
