A history of life in 100 fossils by Paul D Taylor( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of all living things can be found in the ground. Epic tales of survival and migration, evolution, and destruction are hidden in the buried remains of animals and plants that lived long ago. This book brings together the most remarkable fossil discoveries to illustrate how life on Earth evolved. Paleontologists Paul Taylor and Aaron O'Dea explain the importance of each fossil and tell the stories of the sharp-eyed and sharp-witted people who discovered them. Discover Cambrian worms from China that provide a window on early animal life in the sea, ancient insects encapsulated by amber, the first fossil bird Archaeopteryx and the last ancestor of humankind. The fossils have been selected from the renowned collections of the two premier natural history museums in the world, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC, and the Natural History Museum, London.--Adapted from book jacket
Extinctions in the history of life( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Key aspects of extinctions in the history of life are here reviewed by six leading paleontologists, providing a source text for geology and biology undergraduates as well as more advanced scholars. Topical issues are dealt with such as the causes of mass extinctions and how animal and plant life have recovered from these cataclysmic events that have shaped biological evolution. This helps us to view the current biodiversity crisis in a broader context, and shows how large-scale extinctions have had profound and long-lasting effects on the Earth's biosphere."--Jacket

Fossiler by Paul D Taylor( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in Norwegian and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oppdag verden" er en serie illustrerte faktabøker som presenterer ulike natur- og kulturvitenskapelige emner. Flere av emnene, samt bøkenes fremstillingsform har vært brukt tidligere i andre serier og med andre navn. Innholdet er delt opp i rikt illustrerte dobbeloppslag, et oppslag for hvert kapittel. Opplysningene som det enkelte oppslag gir, er av meget generell karakter og består av en kort hovedtekst som kommenteres og utfylles av fotografier og illustrasjoner med påfølgende bildetekster. Informasjonstilfanget knyttet til det enkelte emne har stor spennvidde, men er lite utdypende og den grafiske utformingen gjør det tidvis vanskelig å orientere seg. Illustrasjonene er gode, men den fragmenterte fremstillingen er uoversiktlig. Det forekommer dessuten mange vanskelige ord og uttrykk som ikke alltid forklares i teksten. Bøkene har heller ingen ordliste. I denne boka presenteres fossiler fra spennende fortidsdyr som dinosaurer til de første menneskene. Damm, 2001
