Cenozoic Seas

$250.00
This guide analyzes the changing geography, the arrival and departures of ecosystems and species, and the affect of climate on living things in the prehistoric seas of the eastern US. The author classifies all of the region's fossil-bearing formations and their contents within a logical, descriptive framework, allowing a determination of how community types were affected by geography and climate. This enables a study of life in the environmental and biotic contexts in which evolution, invasion, and extinction occur. The book is also an excellent field guide for fossil collectors, providing a detailed narrative for all species illustrated. Many organisms have never before been illustrated in a book on fossil shells. More info →

The First Fossil Hunters: Dinosaurs, Mammoths, and Myth in Greek and Roman Times

The First Fossil Hunters: Dinosaurs, Mammoths, and Myth in Greek and Roman Times

$15.00
Griffins, Cyclopes, Monsters, and Giants--these fabulous creatures of classical mythology continue to live in the modern imagination through the vivid accounts that have come down to us from the ancient Greeks and Romans. But what if these beings were more than merely fictions? What if monstrous creatures once roamed the earth in the very places where their legends first arose? This is the arresting and original thesis that Adrienne Mayor explores in The First Fossil Hunters. Through careful research and meticulous documentation, she convincingly shows that many of the giants and monsters of myth did have a basis in fact--in the enormous bones of long-extinct species that were once abundant in the lands of the Greeks and Romans.
