That's the one I put in my binder last year. You might be better off if you remove the terms you're sure you know, and just keep the ones you think you might forget.

How do you guys differentiate between Metasequoia fossils and Fern fossils - the pattern of leaves is very similar.

I added a FAQ section to the Fossils Wiki, similar to the one made for Ornithology. It seems people always come and ask the same questions without reading the whole topic, so I just put everything mentioned in one handy section. I did my best to take the general consensus when the questions were asked before.

You can see it here: Fossils Wiki, underneath Day of the Event.
There once was a group of teens
Who were lean mean science machines.
They liked to win medals,
when everything settles
and their favorite color was green.

First of all, please learn to edit your posts. Don't post twice in a row when you can just hit the little 'edit' button.
Secondly, at Wayzata (this year, but still) we had 4 short answer questions and an entire page about radioactive isotopes... It was interesting.

Does anyone have a good amount of information for rhombopora and/or juresania? I can't find that much for either of them...

Edit: Also did Angiosperms first appear in the Jurassic or the Cretaceous? I have sources that say both. And did the phylum porifera appear before or after the phylum cnidaria (again conflicting sources)?

wikipedia says that angiosperms diverged from gymnosperms around 220 million yrs ago
but the first flowering plants appeared from 140 mil yrs ago
so, early cretaceous i suppose
