Living Fossil

FossilThe Soviet Union were at 40 – 50 years of the XX century, it was reported that at a certain stage of growth of the world’s animal and it is in times of the Paleozoic era, about the border Carboniferous and Permian periods in reservoirs were first sacrosanctness fish – coelenterate  It happened about 300 million years ago, tens of millions of years before the Earth the first dinosaurs walked. Coelenterate existed for nearly 250 million years virtually unchanged, as evidenced by the numerous finds of fossilized skeletons in the Earth’s crust layers of different ages. Image of the skeleton and cited in the above tutorial. And about 50 million years ago, all coelenterates have died and disappeared forever from the face of the Earth. Read the rest of this entry »

A footprint of 500 million years

footprintThe fossil footprint was originated in June 1968 by William J.Meister, a fossil collector. This footprint is estimated to old about 300 – 600 million years. A sandal that is crushing a trilobite: Is this proof that there were previous civilizations on earth, or visitors from other worlds?
Meister made the discovery during an unusual expedition to search for rocks and fossils at Antelope Spring, 43 miles west of Delta, Utah.
He was accompanied by his wife and two daughters. The committee had already discovered many small fossils of trilobites when Meister broke a thick plate of rock more than two inches with his hammer and discovered the unique imprint. The rock opened like a book Meister could say afterwards “on one side of the footprint of a man”.

Sensation! Fossil leaves only a couple thousand years!

Fossil In the southeast part of New South Wales in Australia, scientists have discovered remarkably preserved fossil leaves from tropical trees.
This part of Australia in our day today rather arid, so that near the houses of people living here can not grow trees and flowers so that even such a service as a flower delivery to any holiday here rather expensive.
But all the same leaf fossils, discovered by scientists here have a direct affiliation to the tropical plants. Most of them are identical to the leaves of plants in these days of growing in tropical rain forests of the northern part of the Australian continent. Read the rest of this entry »

Fossil corals tell about the history of the ocean

coralsAncient coral reefs on the Great Barrier Reef will help to understand how the past 20 thousand years has changed the sea level.

An international team of researchers will hold 45 days on board the ship of the Great Mayan , collecting samples at 40 locations at a depth of 150 m. Since, like trees, corals have growth rings, seasonal fluctuations in the past may shed light on the history of sea-water temperature , salinity and other characteristics of the environment.
