About this book

Language: Japanese with scientific nomenclature

This abundantly illustrated book shows what fossils were excavated in various parts of Japan and how ancient creatures lived in each area

Summary in Japanese:
北は北海道から南は沖縄まで、日本にはさまざまな古生物たちが暮らしていました。しかし世界の古生物たちの情報を目にする機会は多くても、自分たちの“地元"にかつてどんな古生物たちが存在したのかは、見落とされがちです。

本書では、日本各地でどのような化石が発掘され、古生物たちがそれぞれの土地でどのように暮らしていたかを、豊富なイラスト&わかりやすい文章で解説します。
2019年秋に学名発表となった「カムイサウルス」や、《北の異常巻き》で知られるアンモナイト「ニッポニテス」、《古生物ブームの火付け役》となった「フタバスズキリュウ」など、代表的な古生物に加え、大阪・待兼山の名を冠した「マチカネワニ」など、地域色ゆたかな古生物たちも満載です。

巻末付録として、日本地質学会がまとめた“県の化石"情報や、本書に掲載した古生物たちが日本のどの博物館で見られるのかなど、お役立ち情報もご紹介。
ぜひ本書をおともに、ちかくの博物館で地域の古生物たちに触れてみてください。
