Abstract (in english)
   A brief review of camouflage and mimicry in fossils is given. It is suggested that the great majority of palaeontological articles have referred to camouflage and mimicry only in relation to discoveries of colours and colour patterns. The present authors stress the importance of morphology for the study of these phenomena in the fossil record and interesting possibilities of camouflage and mimicry (esp. in trilobites) are considered here. Finally, both the structuralists "as well as darwinists" explanations of camouflage and mimicry are thouroughly discussed, discarded and a true holistic approach is proposed and defined here
