Description Fossils: The Key to the Past de Richard A. Fortey:

"Richard Fortey is without peer among science writers."-Bill Bryson In his accessible introduction to the study and meaning of fossils, the world-renowned paleontologist Richard Fortey provides a comprehensive guide to all aspects of fossils and their use in reconstructing the history of life on Earth. Extensively illustrated in full color throughout, this fifth edition of Fossils includes the most recent advances in our understanding of the fossil record and the significance of new fossil finds. Fortey clearly explains what fossils are, how they form, how to identify them, and how they help us to understand Earth's geological past and the emergence of life. Drawing on all the latest research, including recent developments in molecular paleontology, he discusses evolution and extinction, the economic uses of fossil-derived products such as oil and coal, and offers practical advice for making a fossil collection. Fossils will appeal to everyone who shares an interest in the history of life on our planet. Richard Fortey is a paleontologist at the Natural History Museum in London. His many books include Earth: An Intimate History, The Hidden Landscape: A Journey into the Geological Past, and Trilobite: Eyewitness to Evolution.
