Taphonomic bias is a pervasive feature of the fossil record. A pressing concern, however, is the extent to which taphonomic processes have varied through the ages. It is one thing to work with a biased data set and quite another to work with a bias that has changed with time. This book includes work from both new and established researchers who are using laboratory, field and data-base techniques to characterise and quantify the temporal and spatial variation in taphonomic bias. It may not provide all the answers but it will at least shed light on the right questions.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"Taphonomy remains an essential component in resolving biases inherent in the fossil record ... . Allison (Imperial College London, UK) and Bottjer (Univ. of Southern California) assembled an impressive cast of leading authorities for the completely rewritten second edition of Taphonomy ... . The text is well written and consistent across chapter authors, and ample illustrations and an extensive index ... . Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners." (C. A. McRoberts, Choice, Vol. 48 (10), June, 2011)
