General Description of The Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology
My subject for this month's edition is a book, if you can call it that, which can assist you in fossil identification. The "book" in question, the Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology , is more correctly a collection of books, each concerning specific phyla of the invertebrates. Because of the amount of information available and the size of some groups, most phyla require multiple volumes for complete coverage. The complete set includes 33 individual books by my count. These are available for use in the U.C. Geology Library as you might expect. The complete set or individual volumes may be ordered directly from the Geological Society of America; individual volume prices vary from $20.00 to $52.00 and they do take major credit cards. The GSA does not charge for shipping on orders over $25.00. The Cincinnati Museum of Natural History usually has a volume or two for sale as well. The Treatise can be found on the used book market too but some care should be taken here - some volumes have been recently revised and some prices may be higher than the new prices from the GSA. I'm obviously not going to review each volume since I have only used a few. I will, however, point out some highlights.

When television, magazines, newspapers, books or movies misrepresent paleontology(or science in general), we should respond with the facts and proper
The Media, Trash Science, and Paleontology Jere H. Lipps
Paleontology is the most popular science among the general public worldwide. Only astronomy comes close to it. The recent movies, TV shows, books, and magazine articles based on or including paleontological themes are seen or read by hundreds of millions of people around the globe. That interest and attention puts a good deal of responsibility and obligation on paleontologists whether we want it or not. Much of what is presented by the media regarding paleontology is simply wrong or misleading. This provides us with a great opportunity, as well as an obligation, to improve scientific understanding among adults and kids alike; most of whom are scientifically illiterate. As paleontologists, we should take every opportunity to correct mistakes and outright foolishness about our subject in the media as well as to praise the good media work we do see. This is getting easier every day, thanks to the Internet and email. many people, but they want to be seen by the right Palaeontologica Electronica can help too. Why not a column with reviews, written by whoever sees problems or excellence in the media, that sets the record straight, that calls a spade a spade, and minces no words? Have this as a separately indexed page, so that all the Web search engines pick it up. Have titles on each page with the name of the organization and the reviewed itemlike "NBC’s Mysterious Origins of Man." In this way, media organizations and sponsors will become aware that we are watching, that we care, and that we will make our views known widely. All major commercial organizations now track references to them on the Internet, because they know it can hurt or help them. Let’s take advantage of it! Let’s use our new resource to improve our own image.

Undergraduate Study in Paleontology
General Considerations
We receive requests from high-school and junior-high students for information on studying paleontology at the university. In planning to study for a career in paleontology, students need to consider several points. · No university in the country offers a major in paleontology for undergraduate students. · To become a practicing, professional paleontologist, one needs either a Ph.D. degree or a master's degree in museum studies. · Paleontology is a blend of geology, biology, and a number of such supporting sciences as chemistry and mathematics. · Being able to express your ideas in good, written English and, when appropriate, in mathematical notation is essential. With these points in mind, the prospective student should plan to earn a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in Geology, preferably the latter. Upon entering the university, the student should start working for such a degree as soon as possible. By beginning the study of geology early, the student will have ample opportunity to take a number of biology courses for breadth. Starting early also allows the student to take enough mathematics and other supporting sciences to be an effective scientist. At the outset and throughout the undergraduate career the student should seek the advice of paleontologists on the university faculty.
Undergraduates at the University of Kansas
The KU Department of Geology offers a beginning course in paleontology entitled Prehistoric Life: DNA to Dinosaurs. This course fulfills the biology part of the general distribution requirements for a Bachelor of Arts degree, but it does not count toward a major in Geology.

Literature List
If you are a serious collector of fossils you need books. Not only to figure out the exact names and specimens of the
fossils you have found, but also to find out more about their habitats and the geological periods in which they lived
and died.The following books are all in my possession so I am able to give you my personal opinion about them.
As paleontology is a true Nerd thing it's not very likely you'll be able to buy most of these books at your local newsstand.
Imagine trying to purchase a highly specialised Dutch book on the Winterswijk quarry when you're living in the US.
If you live in the Netherlands or planning to spend some days here on a holliday check out our Rock Shops page to find
out where you can buy these books. We've also added the standard ISBN for each books ans in some cases the address
of the publisher so you can order them yourselve. The language in which a book is published is within parenthesis.

Type of entry:
  • A unit outline that may be expanded into a summer field course.
Type of activity:
  • Hands-on activity
  • Inquiry based unit
  • Possible off site activity.
Target audience:
  • Life Science
  • Biology
  • Anatomy and Physiology.
Background Information:
Notes for Teacher: Until recently, dinosaurs were looked upon as sluggish, dim witted beasts dragging their tails in the swamps. With the commercialization of Jurassic Park, young people today have a very different view of dinosaur life, but what they probably do not understand is the process by which scientists have revised their interpretation of the fossil record. This unit is intended to help students engage in and appreciate the process by which we can use the fossil record to gain a better understanding of the life history of dinosaurs. Although the unit focuses on one particular group of organisms, it can serve as an introduction to the more general methods of paleontology. Moreover, it is designed to help students hone their skills in general hypothesis testing so that they will be better prepared for future inquiry into other areas of science. The unit, which I've expanded into a summer field course, does require a great deal of advanced preparation on the part of the instructor. However, tremendous resources exist for teachers to educate themselves about current trends in dinosaur paleontology, and with the help of several informative publications and videos, and the services of several excellent museums (including one accessible on the Internet), the needed background information can be gained more quickly than one might think.

    Cretaceous Period Research
    The demise of the dinosaurs, along with the changes in local paleoenvironments, are just a couple of areas in which the Paleontology Department has been conducting research over the past decade. This research is conducted in the intermittent barren landscapes of the Little Missouri Badlands in southwest North Dakota. These badlands represent the latest Cretaceous Period, which was home to the dinosaurs, giant marina reptiles, and extinct exotic plants. Research teams associated with the museum have been working in these ancient environments collecting fossils of vertebrates, invertebrates and plants to try to reassemble what was present 65 million years ago. As a result of these studies, clues are emerging in regards to how the plants and animals are interacting, how abundant they were and what was present at the time of the meteor impact. The fossil remains of these plants and animals are brought back to our museum where they are prepared, curated and studied. Displays depicting the results of our findings are presented to the general public in our museum. Research results have been published by the museum staff, and with collaborators in leading scientific journals. Collecting a microsite from the surface Removing soil from on top of a dinosaur site The museum also studies, collects and curates fossils from all of the different aged outcrops present in the region. These include vertebrates, invertebrates and plants from 73 million year old marine deposits up to the latest deposits of the area, which are 28 million years old. Some of the animals that have been found are mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, dinosaurs, and early mammals that include camels, rhinoceroses, horses and giant pigs.
