This book is the first modern survey of taphonomy the scientific study of the processes and patterns of fossilization. It provides a much needed up-to-date review of taphonomic principles and methods emphasising sedimentological and palaeo environmental evidence as well as that provided by fossil material itself. Following the highly successful model of his widely praised book on Mass Extinctions(Belhaven 1989 paperback 1991) I the editor has invited leading workers in the field to contribute review chapter which together comprise the most comprehensive and authoritative conspectus of the field. It will be essential reading for palaeontologists evolutionists and stratigraphers and a benchmark reference for all earth and life scientists concerned with the history of life on Earth.
