The last two decades have provided a tremendous new inventory of fossils and
the interpretive debates that inevitably attend them. The time has come for a
reference work to complement textbooks such as Primate Adaptation and
Evolution (Fleagle, 1988, 1999), Primate Evolution (Conroy, 1990) and Primate
Origins and Evolution (Martin, 1 990). To keep The Primate Fossil Record to a
reasonable size the chapters emphasize the history of fossil discovery rather than
comprehensive ...

After thirty years of fossil collecting in the Appalachians, I can count on my fingers
and toes the number of times I have seen other collectors in the field. It seems
that fossil hunting is not a very popular pastime. Though in most places nice fossil
specimens are much easier to come by than good mineral specimens, mineral
hunting is so much more widely pursued that the fossil hobby is usually
considered a minor specialty within its domain. The truth is, I have long since
come to expect ...

Summary Given the observations gathered from ecological studies, tests of fossil
echinoids should be expected to provide a rich and diverse record of their
predators and parasites. Moreover, despite all of the caveats and uncertainties,
we remain optimistic about the potential value of the fossil record of durophagous
predation on echinoids. This is because the historical patterns retrieved from the
fossil record are usually analyzed in relative terms and thus represent proxies
that ...

Brightly coloured feather stars fascinate divers in tropical coral reefs, and stalked
sea lilies are among the most attractive fossils. Both belong to the class of
crinoids, suspension feeders that have graced the oceans for more than 500
million years. Crinoids are common fossils, had a key role in the ecological
structuring of marine communities through much of the fossil record and played
an important role in rock-building. Crinoids are the topic of this book, which
brings together for the ...

Good fossil sites are found all over the world. California's La Brea Tar Pits,
Canada's Burgess shale, and Australia's Ediacara Hills are some well-known
fossil sites. Another excellent site is Liaoning Province, in northeast China. About
130 million years ago, many animals and plants lived there. At the time, this land
was warm and had many lakes. So far, paleontologists have found the fossils of
about 400 different animals and more than 60 different plants in Liaoning
