About this book

A complete compendium of Miocene species since 1904, this long-awaited field guide lists nearly 500 species. It illustrates 260 species, including more than 60 not found in any previous book and 26 newly discovered. It describes Chesapeake molluscan faunas in terms of local geography, paleoceanography, and marine paleobiology. Organized by stratigraphic geography, the book covers fossils of the Eastover, St Mary's, Choptank, and Calvert Formations. It illustrates 10 classic Miocene exposures along with close-up photos of various Miocene shell beds, molluscan assemblages, and individual in situ specimens.

Media reviews
[Edward Petuch] is without peer in regards to the molluscan faunas on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean ! arguably, the most important tome to have been produced on the molluscs, living and fossil, of eastern North America. Ed's work will become 'the Bible' of those who wish to trace the pattern of changes of marine climate ! the essential backdrop against which future marine climatic change in the shallower portion of the Atlantic Ocean will be hypothesised. The Mollusca provide the elegant key to unlocking this story. --John A. Talent, Emeritus Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Macquarie University, Australia ! continues and builds upon the thorough work on Molluscan fossil assemblages of the eastern seaboard produced by Petuch and co-authors ... Given the significant advances in sciences ranging from geology to systematic biology over the intervening century, an update is sorely needed. This publication has a number of collector friendly suggestions, including details of productive collection sites. --M.G. Harasewych, Curator of Marine Mollusca, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
