Istvan Fozy and Istvan Szente provide a comprehensive review of the fossil record of the Carpathian Basin. Fossils of the Carpathian Region describes and illustrates the region's fossils, recounts their history, and tells the stories of key people involved in paleontological research in the area. In addition to covering all the important fossils of this region, special attention is given to rare finds and complete skeletons. The region's fossils range from tiny foraminifera to the Transylvanian dinosaurs and mammals of the Carpathian Basin. The book also gives nonspecialists the opportunity to gain a basic understanding of paleontology. Sidebars present brief biographies of important figures and explain how to collect, prepare, and interpret fossils.

[This] is an insightfully written treatise on the geology and paleontology of the region that many in the field do not have full knowledge of, but even though this is geared toward those readers with a
scientific background, it is also set up so that general readers can understand. * Quarterly Review of Biology *
Fossils of the Carpathian Region. . . is beautifully produced with high-quality color illustrations throughout and an exhaustive bibliography and index. The book will be at home both in a university and on a coffee table. . . . Highly recommended. * Choice *
This book fills a gap in the geological texts on the Carpathians, especially in Hungary, and offers a valuable wealth of geological-paleontological and scientific-historical information from the Ordovician to the Pleistocene. This extensive and relatively inexpensive work is an unrivaled recommendation for amateurs and amateur geologists / palaeontologists. [translated from German] * Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie *
