Directory of Palaeontologists of the World (Excl. Soviet Union & Continental China), 2nd Edition.
Westermann, G. E. G.
The three major parts of this directory are (1) the alphabetical list of palaeontologists, (2) the indices of specialization, and (3) the regional list of institutions employing paleontologists. Listed under Part 1 are name and business address, major and minor regional specializations, disciplinary specializations, and major and minor systematic specialization with respective geological ages. Part 2 (Indices) usually include major specializations only. The Index of Selected Disciplines were restricted to a few less common fields such as polymorphism and sexual dimorphism, functional morphology, fossilization, techniques, and biometry. The Index of Regional Specializations is subdivided by geologic eras and periods. The Index of Systematic Specializations is usually limited to ordinal levels and subdivided by geologic ages. The list of Institutions Employing Palaeontologists is in alphabetical order according to city and country. The names of employed paleontologists are listed under their employing institution. (RS)
