Devonian Fossil Descriptions

In collaboration with Patricia Gensel (UNC Chapel Hill) and Andrew Leslie (Stanford), one goal of the lab is to process and describe Devonian fossil material. The sheer volume of interesting fossils just sitting in lab and museum drawers waiting for someone to look at them is amazing, and these descriptions make great projects for undergraduates, allowing for experience in the lab processing material, as well as being instructive in plant anatomy and morphology.
