Determining Taphonomic Controls and Rates of Decay in Cave Environments Using Microcosms
Caves are important sites of fossil preservation. It is therefore critical to understand taphonomic processes operating in these environments. Since bat guano significantly impacts environmental chemistry and serves as ...
Is taphonomy a fad?
(Death Decay Disintegration: The Newsletter for Research on Taphonomy, 1989)
FROM THE EDITORS: Is taphonomy a fad? Every so often, generally triggered by an unexpected discovery, certain fields of science experience a sudden burst of popularity, often accompanied by major influxes of research ...
Toward a predictive taphonomy
FROM THE EDITORS: Toward a predictive taphonomy A favorite children's questions about fossils (usually regarding dinosaurs) is "How do you know where to find them?" In other words, "Can we, as paleontologists, predict ...
The future of paleontology and taphonomy: part 2
(Death Decay Disintegration: The Newsletter for Research on Taphonomy, 1993-02)
We accept as a given that research in taphonomy will have a continuing impact within paleontology but, as we discussed in issue Number 3 of DDD, it is vital that this work also be brought to the attention of non-paleontologists. ...
