Summary

This book provides a complete reference for anyone interested in the earth sciences. Each section starts by explaining how the phenomena have formed, their defining characteristics and the habitats in which they are found. The book¿s major feature is its two visual directories ¿ one on rocks and minerals and one on fossils ¿ containing over 700 specimen profiles. Each profile features a colour photograph for easy identification. Information boxes give facts such as type and location, and detailed artworks show the structure of rocks and how each fossil originally looked. With over 1200 colour photographs and over 850 informative artworks, this is an impressive work that is beautiful to look at as well as providing all the facts anyone needs about these absorbing subjects.
