Paleontology and Geologic Time

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Major Transitions in Evolution

Paleontology and Geologic Time

Taught by Professor Anthony Martin and 1 others | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Plunge into “deep time” by examining the two major types of evidence used in paleontology, which is the study of ancient life: namely, body fossils (shells, bones, molds, casts, eggs) and trace fossils (tracks, burrows, nests). Also, see how fossils are used together with radiometric dating to construct the geologic time scale.
