Objective(s): To make field observations and collections of reef and off-reef organisms preserved in middle-upper Devonian strata;

Project Description: The researcher and his team will look for fossils of reef animals. Notes will be taken on the growth positions of the reef animals, and about 400 kg of fossils will be collected by hand or with hammers and chisels from various localities. The fossils will be brought back to the Royal Tyrrell Museum and used to make molds. Casts from these molds will be used to make an exhibit showing a three-dimensional reconstruction of a Devonian Reef.
