"Unique in its range, this massive work is not a catalog of fossil species, but the comprehensive overview of a field of scholarly research… A highly recommended source for academic and public libraries." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"A valuable reference source for undergraduate, high school, or public libraries." -- Choice

"Here is a welcome and much-needed resource… Extremely well written, with line drawings, photographs, charts and other illustrative matter, plus a list of works cited and a further reading list…This is an excellent work, recommended for all libraries from high school to academic. It is pleasing to the eye, well bound, authoritative, and highly readable…the discipline of paleontology is not fast changing, making this set a standard reference source for many years without going out of date." -- Booklist/RBB

"This well-researched and well-written set will be beneficial to those doing research specifically in the area of paleontology. It will also be useful in science, academic, and many large public libraries." -- American Reference Books Annual

"A useful addition to university and museum libraries." -- Nature

"An essential reference tool…highly recommended." -- E-Streams
