Hi all,

taking up Terry's note that Naomis initial question was to focus on  
publications that had impact beyond our subject I can first second  
Henriette that Norbert Benecke's book is percepted by lots of  
scientists and interested public far beyond archaeologists and  
zooarchaeologists (at least in the German speaking community).

The 'Hunters or the Hunted?" will certainly stay a landmark (and an  
all time favourite of mine).

Not much less important basics in my view are:
Binford, Lewis Roberts (1981): Bones - Ancient Men and modern Myths,  
London

Lyman, Roger Lee (1994): Vertebrate Taphonomy, Cambridge

Shipman, Pat (1981): Life History of a Fossil – An Introduction to  
Taphonomy and Paleoecology, London

and various papers by Anna Behrensmeyer like
Behrensmeyer, Anna Kay & Hill, Andrew P. (1980): Fossils in the  
Making – Vertebrate Taphonomy and Paleoecology, Chicago

and not to forget:
Davis, Simon J. M. (1995): The Archaeology of Animals, London
O'Connor, Terry (2000): the archaeology of animal bones, Stroud

The more recent ones have most already mentioned by others except:
O'Connor, Terry & Sykes, Naomi (2010): Extinctions and Invasions: A  
Social History of British Fauna, Oxford
Which, I will be sure, will become a basic publication in zoology and  
ecology.

Best

Christian
