The Crucible of Creation: The Burgess Shale and the Rise of Animals
New York: Oxford University Press, 2000. 276 pages.
"Located in the west of Canada, the Burgess Shale contains a unique collection of fossil remains, and has become an icon for those studying the history of life," writes the publisher. "This remarkable book takes us on a fresh journey back in time through the Burgess Shale and its astonishing collection of Cambrian creatures. Simon Conway Morris paints a vivid picture of the critical period which saw the diversification of all the major animal groups, and takes a controversial stance on current evolutionary theories." Conway Morris is Professor in the Department of Earth Sciences at Cambridge University.
