Hi, my name is Corey Coutu and I am a graduate student in the Geology Department of the University of Vermont, working with Professor Char Mehrtens. Geology can be a complex subject to understand, and this section presents resources that may be helpful in understanding the geological background to the evolutionary concepts presented in this site. Below are a number of links designed to facilitate a deeper understanding of how the study of geology and evolution can walk hand in hand.
Frequently Asked Questions: Frequently asked questions about evolution and the process of natural selection
What is a Fossil?: Information concerning the "how" and "why" of fossilization. (Lesson Plan Integrated)
How Geologists Tell Time: A discussion on the methods used to date rocks and fossils (Lesson Plan Integrated)
The Evolving Planet: Links to plate and climate reconstruction across geologic time
Evolution in the News: Links to evolution news web sites, updated monthly
Classroom Resources: Links to some of the best evolution education content sites online
Please send comments, suggestions, or questions about what they have seen here to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will doour best to provide you with a quick and informed reply.
Have fun with the site,
Corey and Char
