  • Biopolymer transformation in organisms during fossilization are used in an organismic approach to evaluate their contribution to sedimentary organic matter
  • Features investigations including experiments of the morphology, ultrastructure and chemical composition of diverse terrestrial plant and animal fossils
  • Presents how various biomolecules that constitute organisms transform in earth history and shed light on their occurrence in modern taxa and survivability in the fossil record
This book provides an overview, research compendium and an introduction to the science of molecular paleontology, including literature overview for non-geochemists. Analytical methods employed are included as a part of each chapter that underpin this branch of paleontology and indeed geochemistry. The primary usefulness of this volume is for organic geochemists, molecular palaeontologists, and molecular archeologists. Researchers, graduate students and academics interested in astrobiology from a paleontological perspective may also find this to be valuable.
