Review "...a veritable feast that will satisfy starving crinoid lovers the world over. The book is stunning in appearance and authoritative in its treatment. Fossil Crinoids goes far beyond many recent works treating major fossil groups in presenting the most spectacular crinoid assemblages, or Lagerstatten, over time and space, spanning the entire fossil record of crinoids from the Ordovician through the Cenozoic from cosmopolitan localities. The book strikes a unique balance between lavish illustration of exquisitely preserved crinoids, heralded in a section of superbly reproduced color photographs, and detailed analysis of the geologic setting of each assemblage...There is no comparable work on crinoids that so concisely introduces crinoid paleontology and the rich fossil record of the group. Anyone with interest in echinoderms, fossil or living, will find a wealth of useful information here." American Paleontologist "Six years in the making, Fossil Crinoids is a masterful work. I congratulate the authors on writing a book that is a pleasure to read and a valuable source of information for both professionals and amateur collectors." Society for Sedimentary Geology "...the authors have done a splendid job of summarizing much introductory information concisely, illustrating the text with excellent figures and photographs...this is a book equally well suited for the science library and for the coffee table. I congratulate the authors and I highly recommend it." Historical Biology "The book will be useful for a wide range of individuals, including students, researchers, educators, and the interested amateur...Fossil Crinoids is an excellent reference text... For amateur, eductors, and students, this book is an excellent starting point for learning about fossil crinoids. For the researcher or advanced student, whether an echinoderm specialist or simply a Paleozoic/ Mesozoic paleontogist, this book will be a useful reference for one of the most prominent and historically significant group of fossil echinoderms." Jrnl of Geoscience Education V.49 Sept 2001 Book Description Crinoids have graced the oceans for more than 500 million years. Less prominent today, they are a common element of many limestones, and had a key role in the ecology of marine communities through much of their fossil record. This is the first comprehensive volume bringing together their biology, classification, evolutionary history, occurrence, preservation and ecology. Exquisitely illustrated with abundant photographs and line drawings of crinoids from around the world, it recreates a fascinating picture of fossil crinoids for palaeontologists, geologists, evolutionary and marine biologists, ecologists and amateur fossil collectors.
