About this book

Language: German

Thrust forth from Scandinavian glaciers, fossils of all the earth's ages come to the German coasts – but also to gravel pits and other similar places. For the first time, an identification guide has been published by three profound connoisseurs in which these, what the Germans call "Geschiebefossilien" are depicted and precisely described in their typical state of preservation. This make it possible for each beach stroller to identify fossil finds and to acquire a very personal collection of these testimonies of earth's history.

Summary in German:
Geschoben von skandinavischen Gletschern gelangten Fossilien aller Erdzeitalter an die deutschen Küsten – aber auch in Kiesgruben und an andere vergleichbare Stellen. Erstmals liegt hier aus der Feder von profunden Kennern ein Bestimmungsbuch vor, in dem diese sogenannten „Geschiebefossilien“ in ihrer typischen Erhaltung abgebildet und präzise beschrieben sind. Damit ist es jetzt auch jedem Strandspaziergänger möglich, Fossilienfunde zu identifizieren und sich eine ganz persönliche Sammlung dieser erdgeschichtlichen Zeugnisse zuzulegen.
