Die faszinierende Geologie und Erdgeschichte des Erzgebirges Das Erzgebirge ist in geologischer Hinsicht eine der faszinierendsten Regionen Europas. Auf drei Vierteln seiner Fläche stehen metamorphe Gesteine an. Über Jahrhunderte standen diese wissenschaftlich im Schatten der ökonomisch bedeutenden Erzlagerstätten. Allerdings lässt sich aus ihnen... more...

Most major recent advances in understanding the history of life on Earth have been through the study of exceptionally well preserved biotas (Fossil-Lagerstätten). These are windows on the history of life on Earth and can provide a fairly complete picture of the evolution of ecosystems through time. This book follows the success of Evolution of Fossil... more...
