This special study set of eight fossil thin sections includes examples from many key taxonomic groups. Each thin section is prepared on standard 27×46 mm glass slides and ground to an ideal thickness to optimize sample clarity and structures. Each slide is labeled with the fossil name, age, and locality information.
