Entomologie heute (November, 2016): “… the author, a renowned zoologist, arachnologist and authority on amber fossils, gives an overview on recent advances and developments in amber palaeobiology. Further, he develops ideas on future amber research and what might be very promising. He deals with old and new amber deposits, the latter for instance in China (“Palaeodiversity & New Amber Deposits”), with “Microbes in Amber” and then he focuses on “New Imaging Techniques”, ranging from photomicroscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, computed tomography, and synchrotron imaging (illustrated with impressive examples that provide evidence of the efficiency of the implemented technology), touches problems of “Palaeotaxonomy”, discusses “Palaeoecology”, “Palaeo/Biogeography“ and finally “Subfossils in Copal”. The book ends with a rather extensive reference list. In brief, this is a very nice and informative source.”
