Designed for use in conjunction with a variety of textbooks, but particularly with Boardman's "Fossil Invertebrates" , the manual provides exercises, tying palaeobiological concepts to an examination of fossil specimens. So that its use can be tailored to the fossil material available, the manual includes more exercises than will be required by most laboratory courses. Some exercises or their components may be omitted. The author's prime intention is to familiarize students with fossil taxonomy and morphology and to incorporate principles of paleobiology to demonstrate problems in historical geology and evolution for which fossils are useful.
