By Richard Arnold Davis, David L. Meyer

The quarter round Cincinnati, Ohio, is understood in the course of the international for the plentiful and lovely fossils present in limestones and shales that have been deposited as sediments at the sea flooring through the Ordovician interval, approximately 450 million years ago--some 250 million years earlier than the dinosaurs lived. In Ordovician time, the shallow sea that lined a lot of what's now the North American continent teemed with marine lifestyles. The Cincinnati quarter has yielded many of the world's so much considerable and best-preserved fossils of invertebrate animals akin to trilobites, bryozoans, brachiopods, molluscs, echinoderms, and graptolites. So well-known are the Ordovician fossils and rocks of the Cincinnati area that geologists use the time period "Cincinnatian" for strata of an analogous age far and wide North the United States. This e-book synthesizes greater than a hundred and fifty years of study in this fossil treasure-trove, describing and illustrating the fossils, the existence behavior of the animals represented, their groups, and dwelling family members, in addition to the character of the rock strata within which they're came upon and the environmental stipulations of the traditional sea.
