Summary "This resource is ideal for patrons seeking information about the principles and methods of paleontology, paleontology in different regions of the world, and the primary researchers in the field. Dinosaurs as well as all types of animals, plants, and organisms discovered in fossils are included."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2001.
The Encyclopedia of Paleontology is designed to address the shortage of general reference works on both vertebrate and invertebrate paleontology and to serve the needs of students and lay persons interested in the field. As the encyclopedia aims to provide basic information, the majority of the entries are devoted to explanations of paleontological concepts and techniques, examinations of the evolutionary development of particular organisms and biological features, profiles of major discoveries, and biographies of leading scientists. Each entry includes an essay and a further reading list. An international team of 200 leading experts in the field has prepared the illustrations and the essays, which range from concise descriptions to comprehensive discussions.
