  2. Books on Extinct Elephants

    I've taken a great intreast in the subject of extinct elephants and wondered if there were any interesting books on them? Books with other megafauna and the Cenozoic in general included are fine.
  3. Does anyone have recommended beginner books to help identify Ordovician-age fossils on the East Coast? Or identifying common fossils of all ages on the East Coast? I'm a beginner when it comes to identifying fossils and in need of help.
  4. Fossil books online

    My first post! Someone here mentioned this book, Fossils For Amateurs, well, you can borrow it for free online at The Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/fossilsforamateu00macf Also, this site has a ton of free reading material on fossils: https://archive.org/details/books?and[]=fossils&sin= Let me know if you find something interesting to read there. Thanks Jk
  5. Recommended Books for ID?

    Are there any recommended books for ID'ing vertebrate fossils? Specifically, Miocene/Pliocene/Pleistocene fauna from the Southeast US or Florida? I am aware of Hurlburt's Fossil Vertebrates of Florida and it's on my acquisition list, but are there any others? Thanks! MikeG
  6. Fossil ID Resources

    Hi again everyone. Would you mind sharing with me your favorite fossil resources for ID, preparation, etc? Found a few this past weekend..... any easy ID help of the pics below would be awesome. i have a couple more that I might throw into a second topic. thanks in advance for your awesomeness. Sky
  7. How to ID Fossils

    So I've been collecting fossils for a few years now, i have a bunch of ammonites, sea urchins, mollusks and plants but I have no idea where can i learn what exact species they are. I'm wandering if there is any books or sites to which you can point me so I can gather some knowledge . I know there is an ID section in this site but I want to be able to tell what species I have found, myself. By the way I'm from Europe.
  8. Mazon Creek Plant Publications

    Hi, Does anyone know if there are any publications, papers, books on Mazon Creek flora / plants If you could point me in the right direction Thanks
  9. Hi, I've just struck up a new interest in fossils (thanks Thermopolis, WY!) and I want to share it with my nephews (6 of them!). I know the fossil sorting kits you buy don't have the most exciting of specimens (Ammonite, brachiopod, clam, coprolite, coral, crinoid stem, crinoid star, dinosaur bone, gastropod, orthoceras, petrified wood, sea urchin, shark teeth, stingray teeth, and fish vertebrae), but I thought it would be a fun start if I bought a pack of them to make some DIY dig kits. The recipe I found for it is 1 part plaster of paris, 1 part water, 2 parts sand, though I'm open to other suggestions if someone knows a better mix! http://longlivelearning.com/2012/11/homemade-geology-dig-kit/#comment-164564 A few questions: Will the plaster mix damage the fossils? What is the best way to clean off the excess plaster once the kids dig them out? I've heard vinegar, is that safe/will it work? Can you recommend some other inexpensive but interesting fossil types that I could buy to mix in? Anyone have fossil/dinosaur/prehistoric life book recommendations for ages 4 - 9?
  10. 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!
  11. Bored? Read a book! here you can download books about fossils for free. On this web site https://epdf.tips/ you can download many interesting books about fossils.Search for "fossils", "cambrian" or other keywords and you can get a whole bunch of pdfs (just as an example these titles): Evolution of Fossil Ecosystems Paleogene Fossil Birds Fossil Atlas Fishes Chinese Fossil Vertebrates Discovering Fossil Fishes Fossil Behavior Compendium Trace Fossil Analysis Fossil Sharks, a pictorial review Paleobiology and the Fossil record Paleobotany Dinosaur Tracks and other Fossil Fossil Horses, Systematics Jehol Fossils The Crato Fossil Beds of Brazil The Cambrian Fossils of Chengjiang China Oregon Fossils …….. and many more! Have fun Thomas
  12. What are your favorite books on prehistoric topics? Mine are "popular" books.... "Prehistoric Life: The Definitive Visual History of Life on Earth " by DK press- I love how logically it is laid out and how beautifully it is illustrated. "The Story of Life in 25 Fossils: Tales of Intrepid Fossil Hunters and the Wonders of Evolution" by Donald R. Prothero. This book taught me a lot about transitional fossils. I am looking for other good books. So, what are yours?
  13. Need Help

    Hi my friends. I need some help with this. I have these books carved from moroccan limestone. What I want to do is find a place where I can make some lables and stick them onto these so that they look even more like real books. You know, things like a title, the auther and even a library number and such thing like that. Ive got my fingers crossed. I have absolutly no idea to where I can find something like this? Thank you RB
  14. Hi! my question here is about books, I want to know where I can buy fossil books to learn more about the subject of fossils, geology and prehistoric creatures. The books preferrably in English but Dutch is good as well and Also available with shipping to the Netherlands! I already own a trio of books about fossils and dinosaurs but all of these books are from different times and feature different things. List of books: Dinosaurs, A big book about prehistoric animals from 2009 (English) Fossielen, An encyclopedia from 1988 (Dutch) The fossil enyclopedia, well the title says it from 2007 (Dutch) Thank you for reading and for helping me out!
  15. Fossil Books

    Does anyone recommend books books about Mesozoic marine chordates? ( German or English )
  16. What are the recommended books or online resources on dinosaur egg fossils? I heard of a few book titles - both are written by the same author Kenneth Carpenter. What are your recommendation? 1. Dinosaur eggs and fossils. 2. Eggs, Nests and Baby Dinosaurs. Thanks.
  17. 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 on the lookout for it but any recommendations are awesome.
  18. Rockhounding Wisconsin

    In late spring the book Rockhounding Wisconsin was released. I had pre ordered it as I was excited they were making one of these books for my home state. I have several of the other ones for other states and love them. I waited several months and when I finally received it, read it cover to cover over 2 days. From a fossil hunter viewpoint I was seriously disappointed. From a fossil standpoint, almost every single site listed can be found on here. There are maybe a couple locales at most I wasn't familiar with, and only 1 of which might allow collecting. The author also is not very knowledgeable as to the laws of collecting as almost every site he said he wasn't sure about collecting status. From a responsible collectors point of view, this is one of the most pertinent parts of information. This information should have been sought out more so than the random filler commentary in the book. From someone seeking out gems and other shiny or fun rocks like agates, it's ok as Wisconsin isn't really known much for that. The sections on those are also quite vague saying things like, you should be able to find this even though I didn't because of the time of year. From a geology standpoint, I thought there was a lot of information on the various formations throughout Wisconsin. If you just want to find a bunch of rocks from different formations, time periods, etc, then this is a great book. There are tons of sites where you can find things like various limestones, banded rocks, etc. Overall I would give it 3 stars mainly because of the geology aspect. I understand it's a rockhounding book, and not a fossils and shiny object book, the latter of which my kids and I enjoy collecting. To me the book just feels forced, like the author just drove the major freeway through the state and picked locales that were close to the road. He even says many times about his family being with him so this undoubtedly influenced him going off the beaten path to find some real good places. His commentary also will rub some Wisconsinites the wrong way talking about poisoning our country with lead producing past and cheese producing now(obesity). Personally unless you're a geology student or someone who just really likes different looking random rocks, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this book. Stick to the advice of the fossil forum and save yourself 20 bucks.
  19. Book for my birthday!

    My brother sent me this rather nice book on fossils today for my birthday. Its not new but it is cool, and very heavy!
  20. So today I was excited when this book came in. It is not in print anymore and I was lucky I managed to order this copy. It talks about the gastropods, cephalopods, and vermes of the Georgian Bay formation of Toronto, Ontario. It even has some nice detailed plates of what can be found in the formation. I never even knew vermes (worms?) can be found in the formation.
  21. 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 little bit of everything--trilobites, fish, ammonites, ferns, and plenty more, with the exceptions of dinosaur material and shark teeth. If you're looking for something specific I will let you know what I have and send pictures your way . Reese
  22. Dinosaur fossils

    Hi. I have decided to start collecting dinosaur fossils from as many UK locations as possible. After doing research on the Internet I understand how to tell the difference between dinosaur and non dinosaur bones but can anyone suggest any books which explain the difference between the bones of each type of dinosaur, such as Theropods and Sauropods? Thanks, Daniel
  23. I'm currently reading Fossils: The Key to the Past by Richard Fortey. So far it's very good - very informative. I'm about half way through, and up to this point I'd give it 5/5 stars. Others may not care for it. Just my opinion. I've read several nonfiction science books over the past several months on everything from embryology to plant diversity to the end-Permian extinction to river and stream ecology. My favorite so far was The Story of Earth by Robert M. Hazen. Brilliant man, Brilliant book. Have you any nonfiction science related books (on paleontology or anything else science based) that you would recommend? Do you have a favorite? A "must read"? Scott.
  24. Hi, does anyone know a good book on Devonian paleontology, especially the flora? Thanks, Dom
  25. Books Arthropods Canada

    Book Freebies for someone in Canada. Working my way through clutter. I've boxed up some publications on Trilobites and other arthropods...to give away. Some my doubles, others in 'ok' condition. Various ages. Set of journals on German Devonian/Carboniferous trilobites. Used but decent shape. Some notes in margins. No need to compensate me for postage but I ask that you make a equivalent donation of the postage to your local SPCA or Animal shelter. Likely about $30 postage. Note...I will send these as a group to someone with an 'expressed interest' in the subject of Upper paleozoic arthropods or Carboniferous 'stuff''. If I dont respond, they are spoken for. PM only, please.
