Trace Fossils. The silence of Ediacara, the shadow of uranium.

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This was a landscape of fossils and trace fossils - the preserved impressions
    left by the passage of a living body through sediment - jostling for
    attention. On this land surface, South Australia presents an arc extending
    from the 'death mask' fossils of early multicellular life to the human leap into
    the solar system. Sure, you might say, this could be said of many locations on
    Earth. But here it seems laid bare for any wbo can read the distinctive pattern
    of signs.
