Trilobites are extinct arthropods that dominated the early oceans of the world. They occupied every available ecological niche and were highly successful organisms that evolved into a bewildering array of different forms. They died out at the end of the Permian, some 250 million years ago. Fossil trilobite remains are found on every continent. This book shows some of the best preserved, complete examples from many different countries and includes specimens collected from many ‘classic’ old localities. This book will appeal to anybody interested in trilobites, from academics to fossil enthusiasts and collectors, who will all enjoy the sheer beauty and variety of the trilobites illustrated. Trilobites of the World features almost 700 species, illustrated by 1000 colour photographs.
