Ozarks Paleontology
James River in Missouri Ozarks (click on picture)

Extensive outcrops of Precambrian, Cambrian, and Lower Ordovician
rocks constitute the geologic center of the Missouri Ozarks. These rocks
can be locally fossiliferous, and some of the fossils which occur are peculiar
and unique. Chert and dolomite, in layers or masses, yield these fossils which
record a part of the Earth's early history of marine animal life. Represented
here are some of these fossils, many of which are different from those that
you will find on other parts of the Web.
