Biodiversity in Deep Time – Rasmussen Group

The main goal of the Rasmussen Group is to document biodiversity change in deep time with high temporal precision in order to understand the processes that govern speciation through time. Methods include palaeobiological richness data, taxonomy, palaeoecology, geochemistry and field observations.

Palaeontological data collected in the field using a geological hammer.
