Objective(s): To collect invertebrate fossils (particularly trilobites for systematic, biostratigraphic, paleoecologic and paleobiogeographic publications in scientific refereed journals);

Project Description: The research will involve measuring rock sections and rocks for processing in the laboratory to extract trilobite fossils. The specimens will then be photographed, described and identified. Any new species will be named and their types deposited in the University of Alberta type repository. The distribution of these species will be mapped in time and space to better understand their evolution and extinction patterns.
