Fossils in the Making: Vertebrate Taphonomy and Paleoecology
By Behrensmeyer, Anna K. and Hill, Andrew P. (editors)
Pp. xii, 338; numerous text-figures and photographs. Publisher’s original printed pictorial wrappers, lg 8vo. Taphonomy (the study of how fossil assemblages are formed) and paleoecology (the attempt to reconstruct ancient ecosystems) are relatively new scientific disciplines. This collection of papers, based on a 1976 symposium sponsored by the Werner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research held at Burg-Wartenstein castle in Austria, is the first general interdisciplinary discussion of these interests. The symposium was concerned specifically with findings from the late Cenozoic period in sub-Saharan Africa. From the: Prehistoric Archeology and Ecology Series.
