App Store Description

More than 230 fossils from invertebrates and vertebrates: from sponges to sloths, from worms to dinosaurs

Revealing the incredible diversity of fossilised plants and animals preserved for millions of years, this app profiles more than 230 examples of the most common and fascinating fossils, using an entry-by-entry approach. By including examples from all of the major varieties of fossilised life, from preserved trees and grasses to molluscs, trilobites, fish and dinosaurs, Fossils offers a comprehensive overview of these remarkable relics from every continent and gives a sense of the huge amount of natural history available to us in the fossil record.

Each fossil is illustrated with a clear and informative colour photograph, accompanied by informed and accessible text. The fossilised plants and animals are arranged by group and then by order.
