  5. 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. Let's start the gallery with some pictures of the front cover, the book's presentation and the table of contents. As you can see most of the book is the devoted to the Palezoic and Mesozoic communities, but the Caenozoic and present day are not left out. Now it's time for the actual content. Each geological era is given a description, with a focus on the period subdivision and the palaeogeographic setting. Then the communities are thoroughly descripted, focusing on what environment was exploited (for example reef slope of muddy sea floor), the recurring species and the ecology. A table accompanies every description. Let's start with the marien communities. And now the terrestrial habitats. I pictured one from the Lower Cretaceous and the famous Devonian swamp community from Scotland: the Rhynie lagerstatten in which plant are preserved in chalcedony by the siliceous water and animals underwent a process comparable to preservation in amber. To wind up, I higly suggest reading or just checking the tables of this marvellous work, that really gives you an idea of what fossils looked like in their environment on their own and as a community. I got my copy for a cheap price on online, but it is not a common book. If you ever stumble upon a copy, don't miss it!!
