Stearn C.W., Carroll R.L. Paleontology: the record of life
Paleontology: the record of life
Copyright © 1989, by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 369 p.
ISBN 0-471-84528-0

This book is designed as a textbook for a first course in paleontology. Many students in such classes
are geology majors, but majors in biology and other sciences also attend die courses we teach. We have written the book for a typical student of an elementary paleontology course who has a general science education up to the college level but little knowledge of geology and a high school preparation in biology. A short chapter on the geological time scale is included for students with no preparation in earth sciences. To make the text attractive to a wide range of students, we have not stressed classification and used as few technical terms as possible in describing the parts of organisms. We believe it is more important for the student to know how the organism lived than the names of its parts.

Yet much of the plant and animal life that seems so common now evolved relatively recently on the timeline of Earth's long history. The Earth's remarkable origins are chronicled in this insightful volume, which also examines the prehistoric organisms-from bacteri...

History of life - 4th edition. BLACKWELL PUBLISHING,2005, 336 p. ISBN-10: 1405117567. For 36 years I taught a course called History of Life at the University of California, Davis. This book, now entering its fourth edition, was written for that course. However, it is meant not just for students, but for everyone interested in the history of life on our planet. Fortunately, paleontology (=paleobiology), is accessible to the average person without...
