More About the Author

Peter Doyle is a geologist with a life-long interest in military history. A specialist studying the role that terrain has had to play in two centuries of warfare, his interests nevertheless extend beyond the scientific. He has written extensively on the British experience of warfare in the two world wars - illustrated with artefacts of those wars. He believes that objects have a tale to tell; he has tried to translate that for the general public.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Understanding Fossils is the first introductory level palaeontology text which demonstrates the importance of fossils in geological and biological studies, particularly in understanding evolutionary patterns, palaeoenvironmental analysis, and stratigraphy. The book contains three parts. Part One explores several key concepts: the processes of fossil preservation, the determination of evolutionary patterns, ancient ecologies and use of fossils as stratigraphical tools. Part Two introduces the main fossil groups of value in these applied fields. Each group is described with reference to their most important characters, and each has summaries of classification, evolutionary history and applications. Part Three concentrates on the examination of important case histories which demonstrate the use of fossils in diverse practical examples. Evolutionary studies, palaeoenvironmental analysis and stratigraphical applications are documented using up–to–date examples supported by overviews of the principles.
