Summary The National Heritage List was created in January 2004 to recognise, celebrate and protect places of outstanding heritage value to the nation. One aspect of natural heritage that has been little explored is Australia's wealth of exceptional fossil sites. While a small number of fossil sites have risen to public prominence, there are many lesser known sites that have important heritage values
Analysis Australian
Notes "Australia's Fossil Heritage provides a useful reference to the outstanding fossil sites it catalogues, and gives a clearer understanding of the heritage values of such sites. More generally, it contributes to a greater appreciation of Australia's geological and fossil diversity and enables readers to learn more about Australia's prehistory." -- Back cover
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references (pages 151-181) and index
