A comprehensive yet compact guide for laboratory, classroom, and field use, Handbook of Paleozoology covers the morphology, classification, and distribution of ancient animal life throughout the world. This unique, heavily illustrated compendium presents useful information in a ready-reference format for everyone who studies, collects, and works with fossils.

Unlike most general accounts of paleozoology, the Handbook deals with both vertebrates and invertebrates. Physical features and taxonomical classifications are clearly and concisely described, with geographical and temporal ranges that enable the fossils to be located in geological time. More than 170 multipart line drawings appear throughout the book, comparing different groups and offering detailed views of particular species. The book provides a superb introduction for students and an excellent field consultation and review resource for specialists.
