    Een goede bais voor de determinatie van plantfossielen uit het carboon. Met determinatiesleutels, veel afbeeldingen en goede verwijzingen naar meer verdiepende literatuur. Deze publicatie is gericht op Groot-Brittanië, maar is ook goed bruikbaar voor fossielen die op het vasteland van Europa zijn gevonden.
