  1. Hi all I am currently writing my dissertation on the effect of the EOT on Large benthic foraminifera of florida. However, I am really up against it because the amount of literature available- especially for ID purposes- on this specific subject is extraordinarily limited. So, I am reaching out with maximum reach and love to see if anyone has a PDF copy of, or knows of where to obtain a copy of 'Ellis, B. F.; Messina, A. (1940-2015). Catalogue of Foraminifera. Micropaleontology Press, American Museum of Natural History, New York.' If anyone can help me out with this I

    Ceratopsian Literature

    Hello, I wanted to ask if anyone could point me to any good books, papers or even recorded presentations on ceratopsians? I’m after general overview information on them, though anything that provide a good break down of the different species would be nice also.
  3. Hello all, A quick question. Do you guys have some recommendations in regards with literature about 'Neogene fossils', that could help me with identification of the finds? All I found was this one, but I don't know the author so I'm skeptical: https://www.amazon.sg/Cenozoic-Fsils-II-Bruce-Stinchcomb/dp/0764335804 Thank you for the answers

    The Ecology of fossils

    Hello everybody! Today I want to introduce you to a book that I really found fascinating. It is quite aged and probably some of you have already read it, but I think it's worth anyway! The book is called "The Ecology of Fossils", an illustrated guide edited by W.S. McKerrow and published by Duckworth in 1978. Essentialy it depicts the life assemblage of dozens of communities of the past, focusing on the British record. The marine habitats are extensively covered, whilst the terrestrial habitats are much less in number, but the same is true for our knowledge of them.

    Brachiopod enthusiastics

    Hi Brachiopod enthusiasts. I am preparing a talk (volunteer) for the Maryland Natural History Society and am asking if anyone can help me to access some literature that would help. Stanley, Stephen M 1974 What Has happened to the Articulate Brachiopods Geological Society of America Annual Meetings Miami Florida, Clams and Brachiopods-Ships that Pass in the Night Gould, Stephen Paleobiology Vol 6 #4 Fall 1980 pp383-396 and Researchgate.net publication/229615227 Predatory Asteroids and the decline of the Articulate Brachiopods Donovan, Stephen K 10/2007.

  6. Hi TFF friends, Do you have any book suggestion about the mosasauridae? Few month ago, I started to deeply learn about Mosasauridae and after reading a tons of papers about them, I would like to get my hands on some book about this matter. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you very much.

    Upper Devonian Fossil Guide?

    Yesterday, I was participating in an Open House event with my local mineral club. I had a display of fossils, minerals, and American Indian artifacts from New York state, and found that the person assisting visitors at the door was sending all of the people who brought fossils in to my table. This was lots of fun, but I rapidly discovered a problem with the two fossil guide books I own: while they both have a lot of information about Lower and Middle Devonian fossils, there wasn't enough breadth on Upper Devonian for me to really give a positive ID of anything found locally! The be

    Looking for a few texts

    I'm trying to find : A Manual of Practical Laboratory and Field Techniques in Palaeobiology By O.R. Green And the paper "The use of plastics in the "transfer method" of preparing fossils" (can't remember the author, and can't find it listed now.) Anyone have any leads? Thanks in advance!
  9. Book I’m currently reading (just started it). Dinosaurs: The most complete, up to date encyclopedia for dinosaur lovers of all ages, by Dr. Thomas R. Holtz. I am enjoying this book so much because it’s easy to follow, it’s organized, and it breaks down the different types of dinosaurs. Very educational. Check out the beautiful illustrations.
  10. Being an amateur fossil collector, yet long time "rock hound", I became interested in learning and discovering what these fossils I picked up were. How did they come about and why? I live within the Cincinnatian Arch even though I'm in Southeast Indiana, it's a small area and Ordovovician in nature. But this book helped me understand what this area looked like, the stratification, and information of the fossils most commonly found here. I'm always looking for books and knowledge, so glad I found this forum!!
  11. Hallo everybody, I am searching for this osteological atlas: PALES, L. & LAMBERT, C., 1971 - Atlas Ostéologique pour servir à l'identification Des Mammifères du quarternaire - Les Membres Herbivores. Has anybody access to especially this volume? Many thanks, Thomas
  12. Hello, I have been recently shopping around for fossil books that are more image heavy to look around at on my downtime, the few I have so far seem to be generally focused on all fossils and contain hardly any fossil vertebrates from the mesozoic or tertiary periods. Thus I am on the look out for any books that would be good fits, there was one I cannot remember the name for the life of me that I think is a large recent book that I've seen in B&N that goes over all time periods in full color with fossil photos/creature images, if anyone knows maybe which one that could be I was definitely

    Books for a beginner

    Hi there, I'd like to learn more about paleontology and was wondering which books would you recommend for a beginner? I'm looking for books on ammonites, trilobites and dinosaur paleobiology. Also are there any books on Ankylosaurids around? Thank you for your help. There are so many books I don't know where to start. Jojo
  16. Hello all, Despite three years of 'slimming down my collection' (no such thing has remotely occurred--the end goal is a nicer collection but fewer pieces), I am pretty slim on fossil literature! I am looking to expand my library, and I am happy to trade for books--I will look into purchasing them, but ideally I can hit two birds one stone . I am mainly looking for books on paleozoic invertebrates, but I would take a look at anything! English, Spanish, and Russian (my' edem v Rossiyu, leto 2018!), but English is primarily what I'm hunting. To trade, I have a littl
  17. Hey all, I've recently caught the "fossil bug", and I have been looking at geologic maps online to help determine potential hunting locations. Is anyone aware of an exhaustive website, book, etc. that labels stratigraphy? If not, what do y'all use to determine the age of certain locations/formations? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks, Caleb
  18. I just came across an add-on on Firefox that makes searching for literature convenient: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-scholar-button/ It adds a button to the top right corner of your Firefox. When you are reading something on the web that mentions a paper, you can highlight the title mentioned and click the button, and a little window will pop up showing you the Google Scholar search result of that paper. Or, if you are already on a paper but it is a paid site you don't have subscription to, you can click the button and it will show y
  19. Dear Forum members, I have been extending my permian cephalopod collection in the past weeks, but I think that some of the genus and species are incorrect. Unfortunately I see similar looking cephalopods on the internet with different names, and I can't find good descriptive catalogues of all these permian cephalopods from Kazakhstan and Timor. Therefore I was wondering on which papers you base your identification. Thanks in advance, Sander
  20. Hi All, Long time Paleontology enthusiast but first time poster on The Fossil Forums (thanks for having me!). Was wondering if any of the members had recommendations on books about dinosaurs, trilobites, prehistoric life? I have searched this forum and also gone to amazon lists and book rating sites and I'm having a tough time finding some real recommendations that are more words than pictures! I'm looking for recommendations on novels that go through the history, evolution, or lives of prehistoric life or extinction. Does anyone have any must-reads? Thanks! Matt
