A couple hundred km or so south of the above mentioned Lemsford Ferry site there is a fossil dig area where Tyrannosaurus rex is being excavated. ( http://www.dinocountry.com/?s=1&p=263) ( http://www.trexcentre.ca/) The T. rex site is a tourist attraction, with road signs on the Trans Canada Highway calling attention to it, and there is government sponsored advertising to attract tourists and announce the find to passers-by. This is very good.
What do we know about evolution, extinction, and adaptation, in relation to the above?
These are the questions to be discussed, as time allows, and that will follow soon.
Topics- the technical meaning and significance of Diversity, Disparity, and Decimation in relaton to the current topic, Fossils insects and the duration of a species, A million years of glacial advance and retreat- over Lemsford Ferry, The fossil record and insect extinctions, Ancient communities and the age of insect lineages, Climate changes over the past 100,000 years, and the survival of the Lemsford Ferry Comminity, etc etc..
