In these instances, we will need to share your Personal Information with these companies. But living fossils show that the idea of species gradually “reacting” to environmental conditions is actually groundless. Probably a near-shore environment in a shallow sea. The philosophy that underlies all of my empirical work is derived from the conviction that progress in the study of evolutionary biology results from linking research across diverse temporal, phylogenetic, and structural scales.

Clearly, such orientation on such massive scales as are found throughout the fossil record are not consistent with slow sedimentation and burial, but rapid burial by the heavily silted currents of a large and sometimes massive fluvial event or series of closely spaced events. ( Back to Top ) Yet another interesting finding concerning petrified trees, is that many of them extend vertically through millions and millions of years of sedimentary rock.

No products in the cart. “The Bird Mimic” Ornithomimus, the “bird mimic,” was a dinosaur that looked uncannily like an ostrich. You’d think that after a half-billion years Crinoids could learn something new, say, like how to walk… well guess what: Though they may superficially resemble cephalopods like squids and octopi (not to mention Futurama’s Dr.

This was certainly destructive, but it had the unexpectedly wonderful effect of laying bare the earth's history; revealing rocks from the earliest beginnings of life on this planet. The 380 million-year-old specimen has been preserved with an embryo still attached by its umbilical cord. We manage, conserve and protect 128 acres and provide special opportunities for Nature education, for study and research. Nothing alive today has three-fold symmetry.
