About this book

The Caenozoic era began about 70 million years ago and still continues. In British Cenozoic Fossils 354 species from this period are classified and illustrated with accurate line drawings. This new edition has been fully revised and updated by John Todd, Curator of Molluscs in the Natural History Museum's Life Sciences Department, reflecting advances in our understanding of the fossil record over the past years. British Cenozoic Fossils's 88-page identification section features those fossil animal and plant species that are most commonly found in Britain, from early plants, corals and fishes to gastropod and bivalve molluscs and the remains of mammals which lived in Britain during the Ice Ages. Each of the species is illustrated with at least one drawing, which is accompanied by details of where it can be found. There is a brief introduction to the subject, stratigraphical tables that show British Caenozoic rock formations, and a colour map of the distribution of Caenozoic strata.
 

This new edition has been fully revised and updated by John Todd, Curator of Molluscs in the Natural History Museum's Life Sciences Department. British Cenozoic Fossils is one of a series of three books that has established itself as the classic work of reference for all students of geology. For more than 45 years, the series has provided an essential identification guide to those fossils that can be found amongst the wealth of geological horizons in Britain. Amateur and professional palaeontologists alike will continue to find that these books are as important to their studies as the hand lens and geological hammer. The other titles available in this series are British Mesozoic Fossils and British Palaeozoic Fossils.
