Paleontology Guides Master Index


This is a master index of Paleontology Guides that will be created by TFF members that organize and annotate paleontology information on a single subject. Content and links to that content will come from TFF, the internet and personal collections. The Paleontology Guides will be created and updated by editing TFF members.


This index is a near stub and will be expanded in the future. Look for "link" next to subject for a link to a Guide.


See my Arizona Paleontology Guide as an example of a Guide link.

Now THIS is an ambitious project!  Hopefully some of our intrepid members will take this as a hint to produce Guides for their region (or formation, etc.,etc.).  Of course, anybody who wants to venture down that trail is more than welcome to use any or all of the references in my pdf library here on TFF.  Here is a link to the Table of Contents.

Thanks for this! Looking forward to see what's going to be in the "astrobiology" section... ;)
