    Invertebrate Paleontology Collection The Department of Invertebrate Paleontology houses a research collection of invertebrate fossils that has the greatest taxonomic breadth of any collection of the Museum. It houses specimens from many localities in North America as well as Europe, Asia and South America. More commonly found invertebrate fossils are those of hard-bodied creatures such as crustaceans. Today, the animal kingdom has a little over a million described species comprising 32 phyla. The phylum of Arthropoda (insects, spiders, centipedes and crustaceans, for instance) alone make up 82% of all known species of life on Earth.

Trace fossils represent both sedimentological and paleontological entities and as such, constitute a unique blending of potential environmental indicators in the rock record. Trace fossils and trace fossil suites can be employed effectively to aid in the recognition and genetic interpretation of various discontinuity types.

Meek, F. Until about million years ago all the animals on planet Earth were invertebrates. Invertebrates do not have backbones or internal skeletons. Early invertebrates lived in high concentrations and often in conditions where fossilization was likely to occur, such as shallow seas and reefs.

The most abundant fossils are of invertebrate animals. Consequently, the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Water-Quality Assessment Program in cooperation with Colorado State University compiled a database of traits for North American invertebrates.

A total of 14, records for over 2, species, 1, genera, and families have been entered into the database from publications, texts and.

The Department of Invertebrate Paleontology collects, curates and studies fossil invertebrates. Its collection includes body fossils of animals such as sponges, bryozoans, corals, trilobites, crustaceans, insects, millipedes, brachiopods and mollusks, as well as .Over the + year history of The Field Museum, the fossil invertebrate division has seen considerable change.

There have been seven curators of fossil invertebrates. Each curator has had (or has) his own specialties and research interests. These research interests have also changed from a primary focus on systematic paleontology in the early years to studies of paleoecology.the UNITED STATES OF NORTH AMERICA."1 "The vast Mahmot [mammoth or mastodon]," he said, "is perhaps yet stalking through the western wil- derness; but if he is no more, let us carefully gather his remains, and even try to find a whole skeleton of this giant, to whom the elephant was but a calf."
