Explore the richness, diversity, and evolutionary history of past life forms preserved in the fossil record, from the delicate beauty of minute foraminifera to the dramatic remains of land-dwelling mammals and extinct dinosaurs.
Plants (Vascular and Algae): Specimens include algae, diatoms, arthrophytes, lycopods, seed ferns, conifers and angiosperms.
Foraminifera: The set includes natural rock fusilinids. Some specimens are in small plastic vials. Pemmsylvanian to recent.
Cnidaria: Examples from each of the geologic eras, including stromatoporid, rugose, tabulate, and scleractinian corals.
Bryozoa: These specimens represent several orders, including encrusting, branching, and fanlike forms. The examples provide span nearly 500 million years.
Brachiopoda: You'll see well illustrated articulate and inarticulate forms, basic morphology, and a variety of ornamentation. Ordovician to triassic.
Pelecypoda (Bivalves): This collection illustrates a variety of life forms and life modes, including clams, oysters, and scallops. Paleozoic to recent.
Gastropod (Snails): Show your students evolutionary development through each of the geologic eras.
Cephalopoda: These specimens exhibit important morphological features such as coiling, ornamentation, and sutures, nautiloids, ammonoids, and coleoids are represented. Paleozoic to mesozoic.
Arthropoda: Emphasizing trilobites, this collection also includes a crustacean and insect.
Echinodermata: This set includes cystoid, blastoid, crinoid calyx and stem, and both regular and irregular echinoids. Paleozoic to cenozoic.
Chordata: Observe the difference between fish and shark teeth, bony fossil fish, mammal remains, and a piece of dinosaur bone. Mesozoic and cenozoic.
