FOSSILS FROM THE LOWER LIAS OF THE DORSET COAST

(New copy)

Edited by Alan R. Lord & Paul G. Davis.


A superb field guide to all the groups of fossils to be found in the Lower Lias of the Dorset Coast. Written by leading experts in their fields this guide will be useful to all those who have collections of fossils from Dorset, such as the beautifully-preserved fossils found on the beach at Lyme Regis. 

From the back cover:
  
"The Lower Lias (Lower Jurassic) marine sediments exposed in the cliffs around Lyme Regis on the Dorset coast are famous for their fossils, from abundant ammonites to rarer ichthyosaur and plesiosaur reptiles. Commencing with the pioneering work of early collectors over two centuries ago, the Lyme Regis area is indeed a cradle of modern palaeontology. This field-guide provides a well-illustrated introduction to the range of invertebrate, vertebrate and plant fossils likely to be encountered and is the most comprehensive account of Dorset Lower Lias fauna and flora yet to have been published."

Published by the Palaeontological Association in 2010 (Field Guide to Fossils no.13). Black and white photographs and illustrations throughout.​
