Volume 32 of the Geological Conservation Review series, Mesozoic and Tertiary Fossil Mammals and Birds of Great Britain, provides an invaluable summary of Mesozoic and Tertiary bird and mammal fossil sites throughout Great Britain.

This is the first volume of the GCR series dealing with mammal and bird fossils, charting nearly 200 million years of Earth history as represented in the networks of Mesozoic and Tertiary mammal and bird sites. Britain has a long history of collection and study and many specimens have been pivotal in developments in palaeontology, comparative anatomy and evolution. Many of the sites described are important internationally for faunas of these ages. The book allows, for the first time, the importance of British fossil mammals and birds to be fully appreciated.

The contents of the volume include:

  • Prelims – including an introduction to the Geological Conservation Review (GCR) and the list of sites discussed in the volume.
  • Chapter 1 – Introduction to Mesozoic and Tertiary fossil mammals and birds
  • Chapter 2 – British Mesozoic fossil mammal GCR sites
  • Chapter 3 – British Tertiary fossil mammal GCR sites
  • Chapter 4 – British Tertiary fossil bird GCR sites
  • References, Glossary, Fossil Index and General Index

Please note: this volume has been produced from a scan of an original document. You may therefore experience fluctuations in quality.
