Title: The biomarker guide: Interpreting molecular fossils in petroleum and ancient sediments

Abstract

This is a handbook for biomarkers and their application to hydrocarbon exploration and exploitation. The authors aimed this book at a diverse audience, such as students, exploration geologists with a geochemical background, and experts in the field. This is a clear and well written text aimed at the hydrocarbon industry. It is so tightly organized and detailed that it is not an easy read for the novice, though it is a very fine reference book. For those in the field of biomarkers or those who need to refer to a particular compound or process for analyzing biomarkers or have a need for a short description of that process or compound, this book will be useful. The text is broken down into 4 chapters: (1) introduction to biological markers, (2) description of the fundamentals of biomarker separation analysis, (3) guidelines for interpretation, and (4) discussion of problem areas and further work.
