Additional Physical Format: Online version: Seward, Albert Charles Sir, Fossil plants. Cambridge: University Press, , (OCoLC)   Preserved within the assemblages of the John Day Basin is a fossil record that spans over 40 million years. If each time period recorded here is a page in a book, the National Monument holds an entire chapter of Earth’s history which .

Fossil Fungi is the first encyclopedic book devoted exclusively to fossil fungi and their activities through geologic time. The book begins with the historical context of research on fossil fungi (paleomycology), followed by how fungi are formed and studied as fossils, and their age. This book provides up-to-date coverage of fossil plants from Precambrian life to flowering plants, including fungi and algae. It begins with a discussion of geologic time, how organisms are preserved in the rock record, and how organisms are studied and interpreted and takes the student through all the relevant uses and interpretations of fossil plants.

The author, Bruce L. Stinchcomb has been fascinated with fossils since a child. With the finding zones of late Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian) fossil plants near where he lived as an early teen in the ’s, he developed, among various paleontologic specialties, an interest in plants of the Paleozoic Era, the earliest portion of geologic time to yield abundant, obvious fossils.   A living fossil is a species that is known from fossils looking just the way it looks today. Among animals, the most famous living fossil is probably the are three living fossils from the plant kingdom. Afterward, we will point out why "living fossil" is no longer a good term to use.

Fossil, remnant, impression, or trace of an animal or plant of a past geologic age that has been preserved in Earth’s crust. The complex of data recorded in fossils worldwide—known as the fossil record—is the primary source of information about the history of life on Earth. Fossil Plants is the first book of its kind to provide an overview of the development of plant life through time focusing on key events and periods.

How to collect fossils The plant fossils at Big Cedar Ridge are not lying on the surface. It takes hard work and patience to find a fossil and not everyone who visits Big Cedar Ridge will find one.
