About this book

Language: French

The Lyon region in southeastern France is rich in Jurassic outcrops, particularly fossiliferous ones, and has always attracted the interest of collectors and researchers, especially in the nineteenth century, when iron mines and many quarries in operation offered a vast field of research. New opportunities offered by the exploitation of the Lafarge quarries and the observation of occasional outcrops in other areas of the Lyon region have allowed us to broaden our knowledge and clarify the stratigraphic position of many species.

Most of this work is devoted to the description and representation of the fossil fauna of the Upper Lias and Middle Jurassic of the Lyon region, and in particular ammonites, which are very numerous and varied in this area. Among them, several species have been recently created or are unpublished near Lyon. The most representative elements of the accompanying fauna are also presented.

Summary in French:
La région lyonnaise, riche en affleurements jurassiques particulièrement fossilifères, a de tous temps suscité l'intérêt des collectioneurs et des chercheurs, en particulier au XIXe siècle, alors que les mines de fer et les nombreuses carrières en exploitation offraient un vaste champ de recherche. De nouvelles opportunités offertes par la mise en exploitation des carrières Lafarge et l'observation d'affleurements ponctuels dans d'autres secteurs de la région lyonnaise ont permis d'élargir nos connaissances et de préciser la position stratigraphique de nombreuses espèces.

L'essentiel de l'ouvrage est consacré à la description et à la figuration de la faune fossile du Lias supérieur et du Jurassique moyen de la région lyonnaise, et en particulier des ammonites, si nombreuses et si variées dans le domaine étudié. Parmi elles, plusieurs espèces ont été récemment créées ou sont inédites dans les environs de Lyon. Les éléments les plus représentatifs de la faune accompagnante sont également présentés.
