Looking at pictures is good for modes of preservation. That's an important part of the event, you should be able to recognize all the different kinds. I would also learn about what the processes of preservation actually are and how they differ from one another (I'm still fuzzy on the whole petrification/petrifaction/permineralization/mineral replacement thing).So how should I study for modes of preservation? Should I just be looking at pictures of the various modes and trying to recognize them or is there something else I should be doing?
Also, what do I need to known as far as dating? Should I just google the things under these categories on the rule sheet or is there more I should look for?
Sorry if these questions seem dumb.... I have a tendency of missing the obvious.
get the list off the scioly website and use what is on the list... even if its out dated because like the birds list they don't always update the taxa on the list to what is currently being used...what is the order of the corals on the list? in my field guide it says the order of favosites is favositida, but on other online sources it says it is tabulata. which one is it? and are tabulata, rugosa, and Scleractinia orders?
...All of them. They're all on the page, and they're all fair game. There's no reason not to learn anything on the page, just study it all.All of the topics that are on the page what topics do you think that I should surly know? And what topics are not so important.
