English Wealden Fossils edited by David J Batten

The Lower Cretaceous Wealden rocks of south-east England, the Isle of Wight and Dorset contain a great range of fossils belonging to many different groupes of organisms.  A few are quite common, but many are rare and require considerable searching.  Nevertheless, interesting and important finds continue to be made on a regular basis.  This volume provides well-illustrated descriptions and discussions of all the fossil groups that may be encountered in the succession.  It is the most comprehensive account of the Wealden fauna and flora to have been published so far.
