Florida Fossil Invertebrates is a publication of the Florida Paleontological Society, Inc., and is intended as a guide for identification of the many common invertebrate fossils found within the state. Each part deals with a specific taxonomic group and contains a brief discussion of that group’s life history (based on modern analogs) along with the pertinent geological setting. This series deals solely with published taxa; no new species descriptions are included. Some of the specimens figured in this series are on display at Powell Hall, the museum’s Exhibit and Education Center. This publication is only made possible through the generous financial support of James and Lori Toomey.
