Introduction to Paleontology (Fossils) [CSSL15]   

Paleontology is the study of fossils "evidence of pre-existing life".  This course examines the ways in which fossils were formed, the various types of fossils, and a selection of fossils found in each of the time periods of the Earth's history.  The course examines the history of the Earth's formation, the Geological Time Scale and then the fossils of each of the periods.  The fossils are examined in the context of the planet's development and evolution; extinction events are noted for their effect on the development of life on Earth. No textbook required.

Software Required: PowerPoint.
