Tides Played Important Role in Evolution
EscarpmentMary posted a topic in Fossil NewsDear editorial staff, I’m not sure if this is permissible in this format. If it is can you edit the first page to stand upright? I am still an amateur! What I want to say is: This is so exciting to me because the fossils I find around here all indicate to me trauma, from tidal events! These events most certainly directed evolutionary change and development, including increasing the oxygen levels in the water much the same as filters do so in an aquarium. Where I live feels like an Paleozoic, evolutionary test tube. ARTICLE LINK
