    The Geology and Vertebrate Paleontology of Calvert Cliffs, Maryland
    Stephen J. Godfrey (Volume editor)

    It’s been over 100 years since the last comprehensive review of vertebrate fossils from the Miocene of Calvert Cliffs, and SISP is proud to finally publish a new account. The Geology and Vertebrate Paleontology of Calvert Cliffs, Maryland spans five taxonomic groups, including pinnipeds (seals) and crocodilians (crocodiles); includes over 60 body restoration drawings; and offers countless high-resolution photographs of ancient shark teeth, fossilized shells, cliff erosion—and even Smithsonian staff, collecting fossils circa 1905.
