Our efforts are to
provide greater understanding and appreciation of the trilobites of
the Upper Mississippi Valley, (UMV). To achieve this we will
endeavor to present a synoptic view of the geology and paleontology
of the UMV.
can be found in UMV formations ranging from the Cambrian through the
Devonian our primary emphasis will be focused on the Ordovician.
The UMV formations encompassing the Ordovician age offer a diverse
depositional system tied to Ordovician regimes elsewhere in North
America. We will explore those connections and encourage further
research where the light of science shines less brightly.
