National Fossil Day: Sarah Losso & Steve Pates
Steve and Sarah, paleontologists working at Harvard University, discuss how fossil invertebrates s trilobites helped us to uncover lost continents and identify some of the earliest predators on Earth. They draw on fossils from around the world including New England and other U.S. locations and bring cutting-edge techniques such as SEM and CT scanning to the study of both soft and hard-shelled animals. Come watch as they reveal secrets of the biodiversity of ancient environments as well as the evolution and ecology of long extinct “weird wonders.”
