Rezensionen
"Fundamental of Invertebrate Palaeontology - Macrofossils" would be well suited for those aspiring to familiarize themselves with invertebrate palaeontology, and particularly students and amateurs attempting to identify and describe invertebrate macrofossils. Hence, this book by Professor Sreepat Jain would certainly serve as an excellent reference work for paleontology students or enthusiastic amateurs." (Tom Trapman, Journal of Paleontological Techniques, April, 2018)

"Jain's book will be very good companion to professional geologists and palaeontologists needing advice on any general or particular issue ... students in palaeontology and their teachers, and amateurs trying to identify common fossils and wishing to extend their knowledge. ... this volume is a treasure for all who are interested in the 'classical' palaeontology and stratigraphy ... ." (Dmitry A. Ruban, Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie, Issue 3-6, 2017)
