Experimental Approaches to Understanding Fossil Organisms : Lessons from the Living, Hardback Book

Experimental Approaches to Understanding Fossil Organisms : Lessons from the Living Hardback

Edited by Daniel I. Hembree, Brian F. Platt, Jon J. Smith

Part of the Topics in Geobiology series

Description

Paleontologists and geologists struggle with research questions often complicated by the loss or even absence of key paleobiological and paleoenvironmental information.

Insight into this missing data can be gained through direct exploration of analogous living organisms and modern environments.

Creative, experimental and interdisciplinary treatments of such ancient-Earth analogs form the basis of Lessons from the Living.

This volume unites a diverse range of expert paleontologists, neontologists and geologists presenting case studies that cover a spectrum of topics, including functional morphology, taphonomy, environments and organism-substrate interactions.
