About this book

The aim of this text is to apply knowledge gained from present day studies to the interpretation of the activities of fossil organisms. This new comparative approach has lead to the development of ecological groupings or ichnoguilds - a new concept in the classification of trace fossils, and is backed up using case studies.
`It is, without doubt, one of the best modern works on bioturbations and trace fossils' - Palaeontology Newsletter
