'the present is the key to the past'
marine fauna; invertebrate swimmers
earliest example of modern plate tectonics
Dates of Creatceous mass extinction
tiny spherical floating forms who make up deep sea sediment
similar biological forms evolve in groups that belong to different branches of the tree of life
formation of Pangea
3 domains of life
hooved herbivores

3 glacial centers
What were the secrets to the success of Angiosperms?
large rocks far from their parent bed rock that are too large to have been transported by any means other than continental glaciers
first reptiles to invade the marine realm w/ paddle like limbs (modern seal)
age of the moon
fragmentation of Pangea
blunt tooth shell crushers (enormous turtles)
Swimmer; pursued prey by jet propulsion
an abrupt shift back to full glacial conditions; 13,000 years ago
most abundant rock of our surface
an organism whose cells are characterized by a nucleus and other complex structures
the intrusive igneous is always younger than its surrounding rock
