National Fossil Day: RJ Knecht & Mark Renczkowski
RJ and Mark, paleontologists working at Harvard University, will discuss trace fossils—those that preserve the evidence of behavior—such as fossil tracks, nests, and teeth marks. Trace fossils are the most direct evidence for the behavior of extinct animals and are the key to understanding major transitions in evolution. They will discuss how they are preserved and discovered, and the different means of studying and interpreting them. In addition, Mark, a preparator who has worked in both the Vertebrate and Invertebrate Paleontology departments in Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology, will discuss how fossils are transported from the field to the lab and what techniques and tools are used to “prep” a fossil in order to discover the treasures hidden within.
