    Mazon Creek Research Help

    Hello, I am a local undergrad geology student working on a research project dealing with Mazon Creek's Braidwood and Essex Biota. As part of this research, I am required to collect specimens and data on both of these assemblages present. I have been informed that any access to the Fish and Wildlife areas in the Mazonia-Braidwood South Unit is prohibited due to the Illinois DNR's indefinite closure of all fish and wildlife areas, so I am taking this time to research and inquire about access to both assemblages for future reference. That being said, my questions are as follows: Are t
  2. Recently, guidelines for posting in the ID section were put in the FAQ section: "Identification Posting For The Uninitiated". There, handy tips are provided to help people pose their ID questions in such a way that other members get the information needed to help them come to a conclusive identification (good photographs, any available age/locality data, etc.). All in all a very useful shortlist. However, reading it I felt something was missing. If someone takes the trouble of producing good photographs and provides all age/locality data he/she has, then this person deserves an answer to

    Long time I haven't been here...

    Hey everyone, The Amateur Paleontologist here - Hope you all are having a great day Haven't been here on TFF in ages, there's been quite a bit going on... First year university studies, work, life in general, Covid-19... But I've really missed the Forum, so I'm glad to be back on. I've managed to carry on with my work on the fossils from the Danish Cretaceous chalk, and I'll be posting here some updates in the next few days. Really happy to be back here, and looking forward to chatting with you guys again

    My Tyrannosaur research

    Hi I decided to make a post about my main research project right now on Campanian Tyrannosaurs specifically Daspletosaurus. Today I have found something to tell teeth from the Judith River Formation and Dinosaur Park Formation. This could also do with the Tyrannosaurs prey or locality. I found out that Judith River Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more circular and more round compared to the same time Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations. The Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more longer skinner and more chiseled like but not like other Tyrannos
  7. @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/
  8. Hoping someone has a copy of Bulletin of the University of Nebraska State Museum 10(1):1-21, or specifically a copy of C. B. Schultz, L. D. Martin, and R. G. Corner. 1975. Middle and late Cenozoic tapirs from Nebraska. from said bulletin. Spoke with the archive in Lincoln this morning and this is one of the "lost" due to a records purge a while back. I have yet to find an electronic or physical copy anywhere (beyond citations)...hoping one of you packrats can help me out!

    Might be a dumb question

    Hi everybody, I’m by no means a fossil head but I have a question that pertains to my research for my artist practice. Is it possible for a fossil to be preserved in a metal? I know it sounds like a dumb question but I am curious if the science makes sense. Is there an example of this phenomenon? If so let me know, again thank y’all so much!

    A few papers from the end of this decade

    Hey everyone Hope you're all well and in good spirits for the new year! Thought I'd share with you all some of the most recent research papers, from the end of this decade -Lower jaws of two species of Menuites (Pachydiscidae, Ammonoidea) from the middle Campanian (Upper Cretaceous) in the Soya area, northern Hokkaido, Japan: TanabeandShigeta2019Bull.Natl.Mus.Nat.Sci..pdf -Bite marks and predation of fossil jawless fish during the rise of jawed vertebrates: RandleSansom2019-predation of jawless fish.pdf -Evolution and distribution of medulla
  11. It's great to see that this board is so active, and that there's such a good, positive atmosphere here for amateur-professional interaction. So, in that spirit, it seems that there's scope for a new permanent topic. There is a wealth of extraordinary fossils in the collections here, and we've seen the rewards that a good collaboration can bring in the gallery... and there are probably also a lot of palaeontologists, around the world, who would love something specific to work on that is a bit inaccessible for them. There may also be people working on monographs of particulalr groups from partic

    How are fossils formed

    Going really basic here being new on the fossil game i wanted to know how a fossil gets created because i have read that the bone gets replaced by rock or sediments and they take its original form but if that's the case then we are not holding teeth, we are holding rocks in the form of teeth when holding a fossilized tooth for example. I don't really know so if someone could please explain to me if the fossil is actual tooth like it was back then or it becomes rock and the general process it would be much appreciated.
  13. Do you have ice age animal bones, teeth, or tusks found in British Columbia, and want to learn more about them? Or share a story about them? If so, the British Columbia Megafauna Project wants to hear from you! Ice age animal remains are dispersed across museums and private collections and there is no synthesis on the condition of these specimens, their species, their provenience, their age, or to when they date. In effort to remedy this, we are a research group based at Simon Fraser University looking to partner with individuals to better understand the Late Pleistocene in British

  17. How an Amateur Collector Changed Paleontology Forever To those of The Fossil Forum, I wish to share with you the story of Maiasaura peeblesorum and Marion Brandvold, both good mothers. Maiasaura was discovered forty years ago in June of 1978; this is the month and year of the Maiasaura. Marion and her son, David Trexler, found fossils fascinating long before Jurassic Park popularized dinosaurs. They would often take a vehicle out and go prospecting in their backyard geologic formation known as the Two Medicine. One hot summer evening when walking back to the vehicle, Marion to
  18. Hi all, Someone has told me that researchers generally can't publish papers on fossils that are retained in private collections, but i am unconvinced. Is this really the case? I'm drawing a blank on thinking of notable examples of fossils that have been published which are held in a private collection, but i'm sure such cases exist. Perhaps anyone on this forum has a personal example of a situation where a fossil they found was published in the literature and that they still have ownership of it? What if someone finds a fossil and a cast is made for study but the orig
  19. I have just started searching recentley have alwayd been interested. Been finding some coral fossil chunks up by lake erie in ohio. Really got me interested in searching. I have been researching but i am still a little confused and coukd use some tips and instruction on what to be looking for and where to look! I have no one iam learning from trying to self teach and iam reading but the words are not translating to the search thank you!
  20. I'm looking to add a specimen to Collections (my blastoid, seen at this link: LINK), and I'm hung up on Order and Family. My field guide gave me the genus and species, and Wikipedia gave me the Class, but I can't seem to find any sites online that routinely show Order and Family--except TFF's Collections, which doesn't (yet!) include any blastoids. Can anyone point me to a resource where I can find this info for a variety of Devonian and Ordovician fossils?

  23. …..One of many match boxes passed onto me by one of the longest serving members of the Stamford and District Geological Society. With the promise of giving the fossils (which are encased inside) some much needed TLC. The majority of these housed match box fossils were collected in the mid-1980s. A brief scribble on the box or a very small moth eaten note is supplied with the contents, with very little other information attached. But for me that’s where the fun begins. As you push the somewhat tatty draws of the match boxes open, a story to research unfolds. With the British
