Lecture and book signing

Within the Missouri Ozarks are extensive fossil-containing exposures of rock strata formed during the Cambrian Period of geologic time and deposited in shallow seas from 500 – 535 million years ago. This geologic era was a time of a great radiation of life with some life forms being obvious ancestors to those living today, while others appear to be totally extinct. Paleontologist and author Bruce Stinchcomb talks about these disappearing life forms represented by peculiar and even mysterious fossils found in the Cambrian of the Missouri Ozarks.
