About this book

Experience a story 3.8 billion years in the making, with this unparalleled visual guide to prehistoric life. Unprecedented visual detail, comprehensive entries on hundreds of species and the latest research provide the whole picture of the creatures and plants that represent Earth's prehistoric life. Journey through the millennia and explore the rise and fall of successive organisms, devastating extinctions and the knife-edge progress of evolution. Fantastic photographs and images present each species in exceptional clarity, including 3D CT scans that transform inert fossils into species that almost live and breath on the page. Discover a huge catalogue, profiling a vast and diverse array of plants, fungi, invertebrates, amphibians, birds, reptiles and mammals and discover how they have evolved through time.
