Fossils Inside Out brings fossils, paleoecology, and the fossil industry
to life in a beautiful and easy-to-understand format suitable for young
adults and older, scientists and non-scientists. This large format book
is packed with information connecting the past, present, and future of
life on Earth. It also reaches beyond the basics by covering historical

museums, and artists worldwide have generously helped to make this
book possible.
