Continental Trace Fossils
Continental Trace Fossils - The type, distribution, and tiering of continental tracefossils (ichnofossils) are useful tools for deciphering continental environments in both outcrop and core. This atlas presents the latest ichnological concepts and provides a comprehensive photocatalogue of nearly the entire suite of major terrestrial and freshwater trace fossils that geoscientists will encounter. The book is separated into two sections: 1) concepts and fundamental principles that explain how terrestrial and freshwater trace fossil behavior is interpreted and used to define environments of deposition; and continental trace fossils with explanations and idealized line drawings. The trace fossils are illustrated with idealized line drawings as seen in outcrop and in core.
