About this book

This book is designed as an easy night's read and introduction to fossil soils and the relatively new disciplines of palaeopedology and astropedology. It includes line art and colour illustrations to visualize the topic for the informed layperson or interested colleagues. It provides comprehensive information on palaeosols, which are soils of the past providing a variety of clues to the evolution of life and climate on Earth and deals with topics such as the evolution of grassland ecosystems, mass extinction of the Late Permian and origin of life, all viewed from the perspective of the fossil record of soils.
