What are the “four Cs” of biblical history. What is evolution. Evolution - Evolution - The fossil record: Paleontologists have recovered and studied the fossil remains of many thousands of organisms that lived in the past. This fossil record shows that many kinds of extinct organisms were very different in form from any now living.

It also shows successions of organisms through time (see faunal succession, law of; geochronology: Determining the. Scientifically significant fossil vertebrate specimens, along with ancillary data, should be curated and accessioned in the collections of repositories charged in perpetuity with conserving fossil vertebrates for scientific study and education (e.g., accredited museums, universities, colleges and other educational institutions).

Perhaps because of the controversy started by Hooke's lectures and Stensen's book, the curious in England, noting Hooke's lack of mate­ rial, were busy collecting vertebrate fossils toward the end of. Yet vertebrate burrows have rarely been reported as fossils.

Possible explanations for this dearth of information or occurrences are: (1) lack of detailed observations, (2) tendency of burrowers to avoid areas of active sedimentation and (or) (3) an evolutionary increase in the burrowing habit as a result of Cenozoic climatic changes.
