Book Description

1 Feb 2008 Schiffer Book for Collectors
Explore the rich fossil record of the Paleozoic Era, from the Cambrian (545 million years ago) through the Permian (almost 300 million years ago) with 650 high quality color photos and detailed, highly readable text. Following his successful work on the earliest fossils, the author now starts at that time in earth's history when life blossomed into a variety of body plans (phyla), and explores the successive periods of the Paleozoic Era. These include the Cambrian; the early, mid-, and late Ordovician; the Silurian and Devonian with their numerous marine fossils and some of the earth's first land plants and early fish; the diverse land plants and peculiar marine life of the Carboniferous (Mississippian and Pennsylvanian periods); and the fossils of the Permian, including many fossils of life forms that would go extinct in the worlds greatest extinction event. This is a great book for fossil hunters of all ilks and anyone interested in the early remnants of life. Those who collect or trade fossils will find a useful guide to the values of the fossils.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book today 22 Jun 2008
By Scott McKenzie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you collect fossils or just want to learn more about them this is a great choice. I was impressed by the 650 color photos and the interesting text. I have met Bruce Stinchcomb and always value his opinions and insight on all fossil topics. This book is of interest to collectors, students and advanced collectors too. His other volume: Worlds Oldest Fossils, is also the best.
Dr. Stinchcomb includes common fossils as well as the scientifically unusual, problematic ones, a great way to learn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paleozoic Fossils fills a gap between amateur and professional paleo person 13 Oct 2012
By Jamie Mergenthaler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
On first opening Paleozoic Fossils by Bruce Stinchcomb what drew my attraction was the fact that the illustrations were of specimens you might actually find and have need to identify. They are representative, and typical, but not necessarily perfect museum quality examples. Sometimes he will have more than one view or more than one specimen of a genus or species illustrated. And the book is accessible to most amateur paleontologists with a deep interest but without a degree in the topic. Good for someone a little more advanced than rank beginner, but complete enough a professional might want it on their bookshelf.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is filled with a ton of photos, ID's, and information. For anyone looking for good information on fossils books written by Stinchcomb are the way to go. The knowledge he helps to put forth is amazing. This book touches on some formations and fossils that I have not seen in other books.
