An Amateur’s Guide to Coal-Plant Fossils on Cape Breton Island

, and

Three dedicated palaeobotanists share their combined 90 years experience in the research and collecting of Carboniferous fossil plants across Europe, North and South America, West Africa and the Far East.

Written for the amateur fossil-plant lover and hunter, no special knowledge of the science of palaeobotany is required for use of this guide book. All that’s required is a sense of adventure, a desire to know about that fossil plant you may have picked up along one of the many shores, roadsides or abandoned mine workings of Cape Breton.

Illustrated with more that 100 line drawings and 12 photographic plates.
