Natalie81 posted a topic in Members Websites@Manticocerasman and I are proud to anounce that together with 4 other paleo enthousiasts we started a new non profit scientific research organisation for Belgian paleontology: "Palaeontologica Belgica" Among other things, we strive to promote the collaboration between citizen scientists and proffesionals about Belgian paleontology. Make sure to check our website and follow us on facebook https://www.palaeontologica-belgica.org/ https://www.facebook.com/Palaeobel/
Everyone knows associated fossils, specifically of associated bones (bones that come from the same creature). I was wondering what association among fossils extend to. Can 2 individual echinoids found in close proximity in the same layer be considered associated?
It was during my spring break 2 weeks ago that I first heard about the PAG. (Paleontology Association of Georgia) It was only started January last year, and have a few dozen members now. I'm definitely going to try and join in by the next meeting, May 5th. Any other Georgians interested? https://paleoassocga.weebly.com/
In the field, I always seem to pocket neat associations. Two from the last month have been a platyceras affixed to a horn coral, and a tiny brachiopod pressed against the end piece of an orthocone nautiloid. While going through my little pile of dusty high-spired gastropods from last weekend's Brechin trip, I rubbed at the larger one and found a cute, full prone Flexicalymene there. Not a spectacular (re)discovery, but pretty cool nonetheless.
