Rezensionen
"Jain's new book ranks amongst the best reference tomes in reviewing current micropalaeontological knowledge and communicating this in a highly suitable form ... . this book aptly demonstrates the amazing diversity of microfossils. Important is the fact that all chapters are organised and styled similarly, and their length is comparable, making this tome really comprehensive. ... both clarity and brevity of explanations make this book an easy read for a wider audience, including those people who have only very elementary knowledge of microfossils, or none at all." (Dmitry A. Ruban, Geologos, Vol. 26 (3), 2020)
