Ancient Marine Life
ENVR 5242 (Lab ENVR 5243)
Professor Richard H Bailey
Ancient Marine Life considers the origin and evolution of the major invertebrate organisms that live or lived in the World’s oceans. How did the designs of marine animals evolve? How did extinct organisms function? Why did some marine animals survive, thrive, and become extinct? How were ecosystems and paleocommunities organized and reorganized over the last half billion years of Earth history? What can we learn about changes in the Modern oceans by looking at the fossil record? Plus much more.
