  1. 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
  2. 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!!
  3. 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. Just noticed what's with all these Stephens and brachiopods? Finally does any one have any info on the proportion of articulate brachiopods that used pedicles versus just laying on the bottom or using spines? Any specific help would be greatly appreciated. If anyone wants to comment or make suggestions about what to include i would welcome them. The talk is titled Brachiopods and Bivalves: Two Look-alikes with different approaches to filter feeding. It is geared for curious individuals to stimulate interest in both groups and includes fossil and modern examples. Thanks for taking a look and any comments you would like to make.
  4. looking for a book about mosasauridae

    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.
  5. 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 best I could manage was to point to a Middle Devonian species and say something like "The holes in your rock look a lot like the impressions that on of these brachiopods, Pseodoatrypa devoniana, might leave, but those were earlier and didn't get that big. I don't know what your fossils are other than something similar." Can anyone recommend a good resource for Upper Devonian material? What I currently have are the two PRI publications on Devonian Fossils of New York (one by Linsley, the other by Wilson).
  6. 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!
  7. 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!!
  8. 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
  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. 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.

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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 you where you can get the full text. And if you click on that quotation mark button on the top right of the pop-up window, it will create the citation of that paper for you in a few different citation styles. Very handy if you are writing a paper.
  17. 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
  18. 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
