oldest boens applied to the Homo genus?
large portions of continent that have undergone no substantial tectonic deformation
bony fishes characterized by symmetrical trails, specialized fins, and short jaws
amniotic egg
large armored-head, jawed fish who fed on smaller fishes
hooved herbivores
mountain building from compression of continental crust and additional igneous material

seaward migration of shoreline
Select extinction of small tooth herbivores can be attributed to...
How did Primates migrate to North America?
resembling mammals; legs vertical beneath the body with complex and powerful jaws
largest Precambrian shield
formation of early atmosphere
similar rocks on opposite sides of the valley seem to have been connected

most abundant rock of our surface
Dollo's Law
Formation of the moon
all strata are horizontal when they form
