Description: The aims of the book are two-fold: (i) to document unusual orrare samples of Eocene fossils, and (ii) to examine what sorts of newand different information can be gathered from these samples that istraditionally not available.New information may come in the form of a better understanding ofmorphology through specialized preservational circumstances thatproduce complete specimens, often with details of soft tissue anatomy.Other new information includes a better understanding of EoceneBiodiversity through documentation of fossil species from rarelysampled habitats. This may include evidence from rarely sampledgeographic areas (African Eocene faunas are rare, for example) thatwill aid in a better understanding of the biogeographic distributionof Eocene animals. It may also include evidence from rarely sampledmicrohabitats (freshwater limestone deposits, for example) ordifferent physiographic areas (upland areas that are almost neversampled, for example).This information, which is available nowhere else, gives a newperspective on Eocene Biodiversity and shows that it was even morecomplex than previously thought.
