Would you like to go beyond a focus on taxonomy and anatomy of major phyla of fossil invertebrates and include some of the exciting ideas of paleobiology? This book, by noted author Donald R. Prothero, is the first to combine paleobiology with paleontology topics.

Current ideas from modern biology, ecology, population genetics, and many other concepts will be applied to the study of the fossil record.
