By W. Weitschat & W. Wichard: This atlas opens a window onto the world of Baltic amber and the Eocene amber forests.
About 650 typical plants and animals are systematically represented in 92 full-page color plates. The detailed text and bibliography allow an up-to-date overview of the taxonomy, palaeontology and biology of fossil plants and animals.
Dr. Wilfried Wichard is Full Professor of the Institute of Biology and its Didactic at the University of Cologne. His main fields of research are the evolutionary biology of insects, mainly water insects, and the palaeobiology of insects from the Baltic amber. This book will not only delight everyone interested in Baltic amber and its fascinating inclusions but also serves as an authoritative reference book to the scientific community.
