Amateur fossil hunters are presented with the tools they need to recognize significant, scientifically relevant finds and the knowledge of how to collect vertebrate fossils responsibly and legally.

Professionals in the field may also use this book as a pictorial resource to assist them in bridging the fields of pathology and archaeology as they.

A new study published in Biology Letters describes a fragmented arm bone from a frog in the genus Eleutherodactylus, also known as rain frogs or fossil is the oldest record of frogs in the Caribbean and, fittingly, was discovered.

The Bibliography of Fossil Vertebrates was compiled and published as a series of volumes, beginning with the Camp, et al., volume published in (see below). However, this volume continued the work begun by O. Hay and his colleagues, who had published two previous retrospective volumes covering the literature of North American.

Fossil invertebrate animals (animals without backbones) are a wondrously diverse group with a fossil record spanning over million years. Their abundance, diversity, and wide range of adaptations make them an ideal resource for scientists to use in understanding how our planet has changed over time.

Paleontologists at the Field Museum and from around the world study fossils. Paleontology is the study of the history of life on Earth as based on s are the remains of plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and single-celled living things that have been replaced by rock material or impressions of organisms preserved in tologists use fossil remains to understand different aspects of extinct and living organisms.
