This overview and introduction to the study of fossil invertebrates emphasizes both soft and skeletal anatomy, as well as the relationship between those known only from fossils and animals living today. It lays the foundation for studentsÕ eventual abilities to (1) recognize many of the most abundant fossils, (2) appreciate their value in interpreting ancient environments of deposition, and (3) use them as tools for stratigraphic correlation.

Book News
A course text for undergraduate geology students who have had no previous exposure to paleontology and perhaps with little background in biology. Explains how to recognize the more important and abundant fossils of invertebrates in the field and to understand how they can be used in the stratigraphic correlation and interpretation of sedimentary environments. The consideration of living invertebrate descendants makes the treatment also useful as an introduction to invertebrate zoology for biology students. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
