Das Ziel des Buches ist es, vor allem in der Deutschen Literatur auftretende Fachwörter aus der Geologie und ihren Grenzgebieten in möglichst umfassender, jedoch knapper Form zu erklären. Diese Grundkonz- tion verlangt eine sehr starke textliche Verdichtung, was sich vor allem bei den Texten der Sammelstichworte bemerkbar macht. Durch die Einführung dieser Erläuterungsmethode finden sich vielfach im Text Einzelsti- worte, die lediglich einen Hinweis auf die Erläuterung bei einem bestimmten Sammelstichwort aufweisen (z. B. : Axialgefälle? Querfaltung). Weiterhin wurde zur sinnvollen Verknüpfung von Stichwörtern im Text selber oder im Anschluss an ihn ein Hinweis auf verwandte Stichwörter gegeben (z. B. : bei ,Benthos‘, s. a. Nekton, Plankton). Weiterhin ist in der vorliegenden Auflage des Buches wieder – dem Wunsche zahlreicher Rezensenten folgend – in verstärktem Maße der Hinweis auf die jeweiligen Erstautoren der einzelnen Begriffe angebracht worden. Es ist hier zu beachten, dass die Signatur: (*L. MILCH, 1894) angeben soll, dass der genannte Autor diesen Begriff zum genannten Zeitpunkt in die wissenschaftliche Literatur eingeführt hat. Dabei wurde keine Rücksicht darauf genommen, ob der Begriff heute noch im gleichen Definitionssinne gebraucht wird. Vielfach gelang es trotz mühsamen Suchens nicht, den Erstautor zu entdecken (keine Angabe im Text oder – wenn möglich – der Vermerk: z. B. ,... schon bei C. F. NAUMANN, 1850‘), oder es blieb ungewiss, ob der Genannte wirklich der Erstautor gewesen ist (z. B. ,... wahrscheinlich A. G. WERNER‘ oder ,? *E. SUESS, 1883‘).

INTRODUCTION TO FOSSILS AND MINERALS, REVISED EDITION No other aspect of geology is as popular with the public as the occurrence of fossils and minerals in earth materials. Countless geologists have been attracted to this discipline because at an early age they discovered the wonder and beauty of such treasures as dinosaurs and precious gems. Jon Erickson has woven a revealing story of the uniqueness of fossils and minerals in the natural world. Indeed this attractive book provides an important source of information for those people who are interested about the world in which they live.This introduction to fossils and minerals admirably fulfills such an objective. When the reader goes beyond the somewhat bewildering names of fossils, there can be ample reward discovering their importance in helping decipher the mysteries of rock formations and their development throughout time. In a somewhat different way knowledge about minerals also opens a window to their importance. These relationships, and the manner in which they have interacted throughout geological history, are explored in the book’s 10 chapters. The author traces Earth’s development during the millennia of geologic time (more than 4 billion years) and shows how a knowledge of fossils and minerals is crucial for unraveling this saga. This short book title does not adequately indicate the large diversity of subject matter that is discussed. Indeed each chapter contains a wealth of topical information that places in perspective the essence of numerous different XI foreword types of material and their relationships. This systematic treatment of Earth history, rock types, marine fossils, terrestrial fossils, crystals, gems, and precious metals provides indelible insights into Earth’s unique character. The data are up-to-date regarding the most recent discoveries on such topics as global tectonics and faunal extinctions, including a wealth of information about the demise of dinosaurs. The writing style of Jon Erickson is very clear, readable, and understandable to the nonscientist.The accuracy of the book and the scope of information will also be welcomed by geologists. The 178 figures provide visual enhancement, and such data supplement the text descriptions.These include maps, photographs, line drawings, and diagrams. Because the vocabulary of geology may be new to many, a Glossary of word definitions and explanations provides an extra bonus for comprehension. For those who are especially interested in following the documentation of ideas and facts, the Bibliography provides a fine summary.Thus, An Introduction to Fossils and Minerals is recommended reading for both those just beginning their discovery journey of the Earth and for scientists who appreciate a well-crafted presentation on these significant subjects. —Donald R. Coates, Ph.D.
