About this book

Language: French

This work, devoted to the basement rock, the Triassic and the first three stages of the Lias, completes the first volume, previously published under the same title (but which dealt with the Upper Lias and the Dogger). With it, the amateur palaeontologist will have a complete overview on the Lyon Region. The first book was a great success, requiring a first reissue.

The approach chosen for the second volume is the same. After a brief overview of the geology and mineral resources of primary, triassic and liasic terrains, one chapter is devoted to biostratigraphy and another to the systematic study of collected fauna. Many plates illustrate the most characteristic fossils. Although ammonites are still important, a more important place has been reserved for the accompanying fauna, and in particular for bivalves, on which it is difficult to obtain documentation.

In conclusion, this book is essential to all those who, having acquired the first book, wish to complete their documentation on the Lyon region, while stating that the fauna described is found throughout the rest of France and more generally throughout the North West Europe. It brings mainly data on stages that are less well known than those studied in Volume I.

Summary in French:
Avec cet ouvrage, consacré au socle, au Trias et aux trois premiers étages du Lias, ouvrage qui complète le premier tome, précédemment paru sous le même titre (mais qui traitait du Lias supérieur et du Dogger), l'amateur de Paléontologie disposera d'un panorama complet sur la Région lyonnaise. Le premier ouvrage a connu un vif succès, nécessitant une première réédition.

La démarche retenue pour le second tome est la même. Après un bref aperçu de la géologie et des ressources minérales des terrains primaires, triasiques et liasiques, un chapitre est consacré à la biostratigraphie et un autre à l'étude systématique des faunes recueillies. De nombreuses planches illustrent les fossiles les plus caractéristiques. Si les ammonites ont encore la part belle, une place plus importante a été réservée aux faunes accompagnantes, et en particulier aux bivalves sur lesquels il est difficile par ailleurs de se procurer de la documentation.

En conclusion, cet ouvrage est indispensable à tous ceux qui, ayant acquis le premier ouvrage, souhaitent compléter leur documentation sur la région lyonnaise, tout en précisant que la faune décrite se retrouve dans tout le reste de la France et plus généralement dans toute la province Nord-Ouest européenne. Il apporte surtout des données sur des étages moins bien connus que ceux étudiés dans le tome I.
