  7. A new, photo heavy tome covering Cretaceous echinoids of Texas is now available for preorder, and I'm announcing this on behalf of my good friend, author Bill Morgan. In his own words: Coming June 2016 Collector’s Guide to Texas Cretaceous Echinoids provides Texas Cretaceous Echinoid enthusiasts the tools to identify and understand these abundant rich fossils. With much of the scientific literature decades old, Collector's Guide to Texas Cretaceous Echinoids will be of interest to the beginner or advanced collector as well as the new student of invertebrate paleontology who seeks detailed and up-to-date insight into the morphology, classification, and identification of Cretaceous age echinoids. The abundance, quality of preservation, and aesthetic ornamentation of these fossils make them widely sought after by collectors and paleontologists alike. Readers are given a brief description of the climatic events believed responsible for the formation of these marine deposits followed by an introduction to the morphology and biology of echinoids including the unique features which separate regular from irregular forms. Key features: · More than 350 high-quality color photographs, many featuring major profiles of each species · Glossary of key terms; new terms are bolded in text and brief definitions provided in first appearance · Extensive bibliography provided for those seeking deeper research About the Author: William W. Morgan holds a PhD in anatomy and physiology from Indiana University in Bloomington. For forty years he was a neuroscientist and a teacher in the Department of Cellular and Structural Biology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, where he was a professor from 1981 until his retirement in 2011. Morgan is the author of Collector's Guide to Crawfordsville Crinoids.
  8. it is with great pleasure I call your attention to our own member Dr.Karl A.Wilson's book, Field Guide to the Devonian Fossils of New York! as "one of those who still uses Linsleys Devonian Paleontology of New York", I will really appreciate this newer resource, can't wait to get my hands on a copy!
