Fossil 'Treasure Trove' Uncovered
11 February 2014 4:30 pm
Paleontologists have unearthed a colossal cache of fossilized arthropods—a group of invertebrates that includes insects, crustaceans, and arachnids—in the Canadian Rockies’ Marble Canyon, the Calgary Sun reports. The findings, published today in Nature Communications, may surpass the Burgess Shale—one of the world’s most famous fossil repositories, home to more than 60,000 fossils from the Cambrian period. Scientists say they documented a whopping 50 500-million-year-old species during a mere 15 days of collecting on the site.
