Ulrich Dernbach leads his readers to some of the world’s best-known petrified forests – and also takes us to places few people have ever seen. He opens his treasure-chest to show us some of the magnificent color photos that he has brought back from his frequently adventurous journeys, and also presents many excellent photos from his own collection. In their entirety or in carefully selected enlargements, these photos invite you to admire their breathtaking beauty.
Renowned palaeobotanists from around the world – friends and associates of the editor – generously agreed to contribute a wide range of articles drawing upon their many years of experience in this specialized field.
With more than 300 color illustrations, this book represents the unprecedented synthesis of a gorgeous illustrated volume, a compelling travel guide, and an informative textbook. It has been created for all those who can leave the hectic pace of daily life behind them, all those who cherish the natural world and are awestruck by its overwhelming beauty.
