Thomas Edward Whiteley, Gerald J. Kloc, Carlton Elliot Brett, Paleontological Research Institution (Ithaca, N.Y.)
Comstock Pub. Associates, 2002 - Nature - 203 pages
This superbly illustrated book reviews the trilobite fossils found throughout New York State, including their biology, methods of taphonomy (preservation of specimens), and the broader Paleozoic geology of the state. A general chapter on the geology of New York State places the importance of these now-extinct invertebrate marine animals into context. Sixty-seven line drawings and 175 black-and-white photographs illustrate individual species, many represented here by type specimens, and display the eerie beauty that has made New York State trilobites favorites of collectors the world over.
