Join the Cranbrook History Centre for our new three part lecture series on the unique geology and fossils of the East Kootenays. Three experts have been invited to speak about the distinctive geology and paleontology of the western and eastern slopes of the Rockies which present a cross-section of unique paleo-climate and paleo-botanical environments.

Wayne Braunberger, Ammonites

Ammonoid cephalopods, generally referred to as “ammonites” are one of the most common fossils found in marine sediments deposited within the Western Interior Basin of North America during the Mesozoic. A prolific and diverse group, ammonites are extremely valuable in biostratigraphic and paleogeographic studies because of the many morphological features they exhibit, their rapid evolution and the widespread distribution.

Additional topics include:
• What is an ammonite?
• Classification
• Description
• Dimorphism
• Gigantism
