Applied Palaeontology

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, 2006 M05 4 - 434 pages
Applied Palaeontology adopts a holistic, integrated approach to palaeontology, highlighting its key role in studying the earth, life history and environmental processes. After an introduction to fossils and their classification, the principal groups are studied in detail. Latter sections focus on their applications in interpreting earth and life processes and environments. The book concludes with case histories of how our knowledge of fossils is applied, in industry and elsewhere. This is a valuable reference for earth, life and environmental scientists, and petroleum, minerals, mining and engineering professionals.
