The Vendian age marks the first appearance of a group of large fossils collectively known as the Vendian biota or Ediacara fauna. The question of what these fossils are is still not settled to everyone's satisfaction; at various times they have been considered algae, lichens, giant protozoans, or even a separate kingdom of life unrelated to anything living today. This site contains ten photographs ... Full description.

This presentation recreates a field trip on which paleontologists find and retrieve a partial Tyrannosaurus rex fossil. Students will see how a site is selected using a geologic map and looking for an exposed area with little vegetation such as the side of a cliff (in this case in the Badlands of South Dakota.) The presentation stresses the special care needed in documenting the location of a fossil ... Full description.

This information about other types of living things that coexisted with the dinosaurs describes the major types of plants and animals that lived during the Mesozoic Era, what they did and how they interacted. It points out that the diet of dinosaurs and other animals is known through the existence of coprolites. There is also a section that describes the insects of that time. Full description.
