Water flow simulations using 3D models of fossils yield new clues to the evolution of organisms known as medusozoans.
The Nullarbor Plain has been relatively untouched by geological forces, leaving traces of the continent’s deep past.
The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, a thermal pulse about 56 million years ago, is an analog for future global warming. A new magnetofossil study shows progressive ocean deoxygenation.
An upward trend in fossilized charcoal indicates that wildfires may have contributed to extinctions during the Great Dying.
New data from vegetal charcoal in northwest India supports the theory of paleowildfires as a global phenomenon and an evolutionary force for biodiversity.
Living in Geologic Time: Navigate the prolific boneyards and shifting boundaries of Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments.
Ancient plant and animal DNA buried in Arctic sediments preserve a 50,000-year history of Arctic ecosystems, suggesting that climate change contributed to mammoth extinction.
Hand axes, hippo bones, and a stack of ancient lake beds show that arid Arabia experienced intervals of humid weather, spurring pulses of human migration over the past 400,000 years.
A new study describes eukaryotic organisms found organized in a cortex-medulla pattern in southern China’s Kuanchuanpu Formation.
Colombia has a wealth of fossils, and geologists are leading the charge to both collect data and share ancient history with local communities.
