Contains data on the Arthropods (non-Trilobite), Brachiopods, Bryozoans, Graptolites, Trace Fossils and Trilobites.

Software packages like these [...] signal new ways to present, evaluate, and synthesize paleontological data, and also to educate future paleontologists. In short, we can be grateful for such packages, and also are likely to utilize them fully. Bruce S Lieberman, Palaios, Vol. 17, No. 1, Feb 2002 "PaleoBase is a comprehensive, easy to use resource for fossil fans, with great educational value. Each of the five fossil groups it covers is well represented, and the photographs, though usually of European species, are superb. [...] ...overall, PaleoBase rocks." California Wild, Summer 2001 "Paleobase represents what was probably an inevitable union: the old world of specimen-based fossil studies, and the new world of computers and digital information. And an impressive union it is! In a nutshell, Paleobase provides an easy-to-use interface (outlined in a simple but effective tutorial), well-organized and easily accessed information, and good quality photographic images." "I feel it will prove to be an invaluable tool for any university that teaches undergraduate-level palaeontology, especially if actual fossil specimens are few." "All in all, I feel that Norm MacLeod, Blackwell Science, The Natural History Museum and CompuStrat have done a delightful job on this program. Students genuinely interested in palaeontology will love it, and professors who use it in their classes and labs will no doubt consider it a welcome addition to their syllabus." Geological Magazine, Vol 138/4, 2001 "Dr Norman MacLeod, now Keeper of Palaeontology at the Natural History Museum in London, has produced a CD-ROM fossil database package 'PaleoBase: Macrofossils Part 1" which displays much refinement and technical finesse." Sue Turner, The Australian Geologist, June 2002 "the software is impressive. It is easy to use with only a tiny amount of effort (good for people like me) and seems to be genuinely powerful in allowing quick linking together of taxa united by disparate criteria such as shared ecology or range. [...] I started out determined to write rather a bad review of PaleoBase, but I was considerably mollified by the end of my effort. Perhaps that is in itself a reasonable recommendation of the package!" Graham Budd, The Palaeontological Association Newsletter, Number 49, 2002 "PaleoBase has been designed with great thought and attention to very effectively illustrates the practical aspects of working with fossils and would make excellent reference material for supporting a taught course." Dr Richard Sherburn, University of Reading, Journal of Biological Education, August 2004


contains over 350 records and 800 images for the following fossil groups: Arthropods (non-Trilobite), Brachiopods, Bryozoans, Trace Fossils, Trilobites, Graptolites
