9780565093822: A History of Life in 100 Fossils

This is the epic story of life on Earth, uniquely retold through some of the most significant fossils ever found. The book travels through 3.5 billion years of Earth's history and across all seven continents, showcasing the unusual and wonderful creatures that have played a pivotal role in our evolutionary past. Ancient Australian microbes reveal the very first signs of life on Earth, tiny Triassic snails demonstrate the effects of past mass extinctions, and the remains of our own ancestors tell us where we came from. A History of Life in 100 Fossils brings together remarkable fossil discoveries to illustrate how life on Earth evolved. Palaeontologists Paul D. Taylor and Aaron O'Dea explain the importance of each fossil and tell the engaging stories of the sharp-eyed and sharp-witted people who discovered them. Each fossil is beautifully illustrated with photographs to bring this unique story to life. It is reformatted, resized and revised for autumn 2015.

About the Author:

Paul D. Taylor has worked in the Earth Sciences Department at the Natural History Museum, London for 35 years, heading the Invertebrate and Plants division between 1990 and 2003. His research focuses on fossil and living bryozoans, with subsidiary interests in evolution, palaeoecology and fossil folklore. He is the author of Fossil Invertebrates. Aaron O'Dea is a palaeobiologist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama. He uses the fossil record to understand the drivers of evolution and to reconstruct what Caribbean reefs were like before humans. Aaron has a broad passion for exploring, understanding and communicating the history of life in the tropics.

Review:

"From single-celled foraminifera to gigantic steppe mammoths, this volume presents a sweeping panorama of ancient life and is recommended for non-specialists interested in palaeontology or evolutionary biology." Library Journal; "A History of Life in 100 Fossils looks like a coffee-table picture book - which it is, with wonderful illustrations - but the book is also much more: one hundred stepping stones from the Earth's deep-time past to its shallow present, each artfully illustrated by an iconic fossil." Nature journal
