Trilobites of the World: An Atlas of 1000 photographs
Trilobites are extinct arthropods that dominated the early oceans of the world. They occupied every available ecological niche and were highly successful organisms that evolved into a bewildering array of different forms. They died out at the end of the Permian, some 250 million years ago. Fossil trilobite remains are found on every continent. This title shows some of the best preserved, complete examples from many different countries and includes specimens collected from many 'classic' old localities. Will appeal to anybody interested in trilobites, from academics to fossil enthusiasts and collectors.
