About this book

Deals with avian palaeontology – fossil birds. The first section deals with avian structure (osteology) and how and where fossils may be found. The major part of the text will deal with successive geological periods in which birds have occurred, down to extinctions in recent times. The evolution of feather patterns will be discussed and reconstructions of extinct birds will be illustrated in the colour plates.
