Introduction To Fossils Poster 24x36
by Feenixx Publishing.
Laminated, Illustrated Poster...
This poster begins by explaining what fossils are and how a few pioneering scientists eventually realized that they were the remains or traces of once-living organisms. Many people think fossils are petrified bones but bone-type fossils are actually rocks. They are the result of a process called mineralization in which minerals replace decaying tissue. This process is shown and explained. All of the other fossil types are also explored.
The rarity of fossils is dramatically presented (see below) and strange things sometimes mistaken for fossils are identified. Theres a great section on fossil expeditions and one that discusses what fossils tell us. All of this is accompanied by detailed illustrations showing the processes and excellent photographs of representative specimens.
There is an especially helpful section on the relationship of fossils to geology. It covers the principal of original horizontality, the law of superimposition, the principle of faunal succession, geological time charts, index fossils, and both relative and absolute dating. This poster is a great aid to museum interpretive programs and extremely beneficial in the study of both life and earth sciences.
Customers have been universally impressed with the quality, beauty and detail of these posters. Pictures do not do them justice! This is a new type of poster that we call content intensive posters. Each provides a comprehensive overview of the subject presented through extraordinary images and fact-filled text. They are designed to appeal to people who enjoy reading books, watching informative and/or educational shows on cable television and subscribing to such magazines as "National Geographic", "Smithsonian" and "Scientific American". They have great educational value and are cherished by teachers, students and professionals.
All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper. Posters are then specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation. These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints. Artists are selected on the basis of their illustration skills and their knowledge of the subect. Many have both art and science degrees. This ensures an accurate presentation of the subject.
