'This book is very well organized and information is easy to find. [...]many of the techniques will be of use to Holocene workers[...] but all geological departments that undertake research should have a copy for reference. This book will be an invaluable guide to geologists from undergraduate level upwards.[..]But always one must return to the sheer magnitude of the data contained within the 538 pages of this excellent book. It is not just a field techniques and paleobiology laboratory manual, but instead represents a most impressive gathering together of almost everything a successful practical paleobiologist needs to be effective. [...]This manual has managed to fill a gap in the market, which has existed for several years. In the last few decades developments in paleobiological field and laboratory techniques have generally been published as booklets or papers. Green has successfully brought these together here, to produce what will be valued by many as a standard reference on the subject.
