Muschelkalk-Synopsis Completed

Lang de

More Muschelkalk than ever – Seven pounds in twin pack

The weighty monograph covers 1256 pages in two volumes of A4 format. The 56 chapters written by 41 authors from eight countries summarise the state of the art in Muschelkalk research and offer new data. The carefully harmonised chapters have an English summary and one chapter is completely in English. With 477 colour figures and full-page tableaus plus 48 tables, the monograph is opulently illustrated.

Text and artwork address scientists as well as the countless collectors of Muschelkalk fossils. The latter will find a plethora of data and an up to date overview of the abounding literature. A commenting research report with reference data of palaeontological Muschelkalk literature after Martin Schmidt‘s Lebewelt unserer Trias will also be welcome among geologists and palaeontologists. People who want to gain deeper insight into development, stratigraphy and fauna of the Muschelkalk in Central Europe, have to give attention to the Muschelkalk-Synopsis in the DGGV publication series. The Muschelkalk-Synopsis will certainly be a standard reference work for many years.
