The Cambridge Field Guide to Prehistoric Life by David Lambert

This book is a comprehensive guide to a wide range of fossils that have been found all over the world. It is the first to use graphic field-guide techniques to illustrate and describe all the major forms of prehistoric life, and to portray the habitat, known distribution and life style of each fossilised plant or creature. large, labelled pictures of the organisms as they probably appeared when alive, reconstructed skeletons, family trees and other diagrams help readers to discover important information at a glance. Additional chapters include full details of the best way to find and interpret fossil remains, as well as information on important museum exhibitions and collections held throughout the world, and biographical notes on famous fossil hunters. Both popular and scientific terms are used throughout.
