Laboratory III

Plant Fossils


Their Preservation

Objective: The objective of this lab is to understand the processes that preserve plants in the fossil record, and to appreciate the biological information that can be garnered from these fossils. You will learn the major types of preservation common to plants. Since information about the once-living organisms is always lost during preservation, you should think particularly about different types of information retained in each preservational mode.
