Éditeur : John Wiley and Sons Ltd, United Kingdom

Date d'édition : 2003

Reliure : CD-ROM

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New. PaleoBase is a new initiative in the presentation of systematic information on fossil organisms. It represents the marriage of up-to-date systematic information on a collection of over 1500 fossil genera, state-of-the-art color digital photographs of representative specimens from The Natural History Museum s unrivaled paleontological collections, and modern relational database technology. With PaleoBase an important new tool for the teaching of life history in a wide variety of advanced secondary, undergraduate and graduate courses (e.g., paleontology, historical geology, stratigraphy, paleoceanography, paleobiogeography) becomes available to students and educators alike. PaleoBase: Macrofossils is the first product from the PaleoBase project, and will be released in three Parts. It will consist of approximately 1000 generic records drawn from the major invertebrate groups. The genera have been carefully selected to include taxa used in the teaching of paleontology and historical geology worldwide. Together they represent the ideal fossil collection; one that in practice only the largest natural history museums could hope to assemble. PaleoBase: Macrofossils gives educators, students and researchers access to a virtual collection of these fossils - many of which are actual figured specimens from the 19th and 20th century technical publications that served to originally establish the concepts of these genera. PaleoBase: Macrofossils Part One contains data on the Arthropods (non-Trilobite), Brachiopods, Bryozoans, Graptolites, Trace Fossils and Trilobites. Part Two contains Bivalves, Gastropods, Ammonoids, Nautiloids, Coleoids and Early Metazoans. Part Three will cover Cnidaria, Echinoderms, Sponges, Other fossil groups.

"... PaleoBase opens a new window on the fossil record.Based on the superb fossil collections of London?s Natural HistoryMuseum it is a developing digital database, and is revolutionisingthe teaching of palaeontology... Part 2 has a wealth of up?to?dateinformation plus 800 images of more than 300 fossil molluscs ..."Douglas Palmer, New Scientist, March 2004

"...a truly wonderful teaching tool...provides a great resourcefor those seeking to identify fossils..." PalaeontologiaElectronica, September 2004

"Macrofossils Part 2 doesn?t disappoint as a follow on to Part1. It is well designed and organized and the photography isstunning. Any of you who picked up the first Paleobase will want tobe sure to acquire this sequel. Anyone who teaches earth science atthe secondary or college level should be sure to get a copy aswell...You can?t lose with this one!" Fossil News, January2005
