    Introduction to Fossils Notes What Is A Fossil? A fossil is an imprint or remains of a plant or animal from the past. A fossil is usually not the plant or animal itself. Fossils range from thousands of years to many millions of years old. The earliest fossils date from around million years ago. The dinosaurs became extinct just 65 million years Size: 59KB.   This book presents a comprehensive overview of the science of the history of life. Paleobiologists bring many analytical tools to bear in interpreting the fossil record and the book introduces the latest techniques, from multivariate investigations of biogeography and biostratigraphy to engineering analysis of dinosaur skulls, and from homeobox genes to cladistics/5(35).

    Paleobotany includes the study of terrestrial plant fossils, as well as the study of prehistoric marine photoautotrophs, such as photosynthetic algae, seaweeds or kelp. A closely related field is palynology, which is the study of fossilized and extant spores and pollen. Not a comprehensive list. Books categorised roughly. Not in order of preference, maybe alphabetical (according to how they come up in my bookcase). Check also my answer to: Paleontology: What are some of the best textbooks on paleobiology? I will.

    Palynology is literally the "study of dust" (from Greek: παλύνω, translit. palunō, "strew, sprinkle" and -logy) or of "particles that are strewn".A classic palynologist analyses particulate samples collected from the air, from water, or from deposits including sediments of any age. The condition and identification of those particles, organic and inorganic, give the palynologist clues to. Palaeoentomology represents the interface between two huge scientific disciplines: palaeontology – the study of fossils, and entomology – the study of insects. However, fossils rarely feature extensively in books on insects, and likewise, insects rarely feature in books about fossils.

As usual for the Very Short Introduction series, here is a book that really gets to grips with the bones of a topic (pun not originally intended, but Ill leave it in!) Written in a relaxed, conversational tone, the authors enthusiasm for, and knowledge of palaeontology nevertheless comes across, as the subject of fossils is given a thorough /5.

One answer: fossils. Many scientists admit they have no evidence of, nor use for, evolution in their own specialized branches of science, but there’s a “widespread feeling” among scientists and the general public that fossils somehow “prove evolution” anyway.
