A Virtual Museum of Fossils

Edward Chatelain, Cecilia Barnbaum, Valdosta State University, Valdosta State University

This collection of fossils contains 300 fossils of vertebrates and invertebrates and casts of fossils from national museums, universities and private collections. For each geologic time period, the website provides ancient world configurations, important ancient world physiographic features, ancient world locations where the fossils were found, and a comprehensive table with thumbnails of all fossils in the collection. A separate page is devoted to each specimen where multiple high resolution photographs are displayed. Reference skeletal reconstructions are shown where available from the literature.
