About this book

The Solnhofen Limestone is among the most important fossil deposits because of its astonishing diversity of organisms, many of which are exquisitely preserved. Marine and terrestrial creatures and plants, buried 150 million years ago in soft lagoonal muds, provide a unique glimpse into the true diversity of Jurassic life.
