Spring has started! The Swans are Courting in Western Pond one day late in March! (Quicktime movie)

Tropical Field Courses -Western Program-Miami University


First Draft
During the course of our trip to Florida and the Bahamas we will see some very interesting living fossils and some (hopefully) that are truly what we ususally think of as fossils.
Resources:
Fossiling in Florida by Mark Renz This is an interesting book, the guy is crazy... but interesting!
Fossils & Evolution by T.S. Kemp
Fossils at a Glance by Clare Milsom & Sue Rigby
Living Fossils by James Martin Another interesting study, never thought of fossils as being something that has withstood the test of time and climatic changes, evolution, and the like.
Ancient Microworlds by Giraud Foster & Norman Barker Great pictures and I like that the fossils are labeled and the locations are indicated.
