Dinosaurs weren't the only "players" on the earth during the Triassic and Jurassic geologic periods, a fact quickly proven with 415 impressive color photos of fossilized plant, animal, and avian life from that distant past! Presented along with dinosaur fossils large and small, are collectible ammonites, belemnites, crustaceans, and insects, also an impressive representation of Triassic and Jurassic fossil plants, including Araucarian conifers, cycads, and crinoids. Dinosaur tracks, "stomach stones," and coprolites are also presented. The detailed text provides a wonderful overview of the range of Mesozoic period fossils by period found around the globe, discusses the ever evolving field of fossil collecting, and explores fossils represented at nineteenth and twentieth century world's fairs. Anyone with a passion for fossil collecting, paleontology, and the Earth of our distant past will treasure this authoritative volume.
