Fossils: The Key to the Past

Fossils: The Key to the Past is a comprehensive guide to the study and meaning of fossils. This new paperback edition has been fully revised and updated, reflecting advances in our understanding of the fossil record and the significance of new fossil finds.


Natural History Museum palaeontologist Richard Fortey explains what fossils are, how they form and how to identify them, and how they help us to understand Earth's geological past and the emergence of life. He discusses evolution and extinction, the economic uses of fossils, such as oil and coal, as well as offering practical advice for making a fossil collection.

 

Extensively illustrated in full colour throughout, with photographs from the collections at the Natural History Museum, this book will appeal to everyone with an interest in the history of life itself.
