The oldest relative found in North America – ScienceDaily



Virginia Tech has identified a number of paleontologists led by Michelle Stocker and Sterling Nesbitt at the Geosciences Department to determine the fossil parts that have been named by the oldest known ice rings in North America.

Fossils are made up of small pieces of hip-bone, called ilium, Chinle frogs, a long horn branch, but not a direct ancestor of modern frogs. The pieces are full of rocks and they are smaller than a pink nail. The most popular and earliest equatorial savior – twin frogs and twin rites of nearby fossils – about 216 million years ago.

Fossil names were found where Arizona Chinle Formation was found.

Stocker, a scientist at the Virginia Tech Science Research Assistant, said fossils found themselves in May 2018 to understand the extinction of extinct species that want to emphasize the importance of harvesting and testing, with a length overall of three meters long.

"This new research highlights how much the Triad's ecosystem is still in the Middle East, the closer we are to it," Stocker said. "We know about Chinle's charismatic biscosaurians but we know that a small percentage of animals that live together live in other ecosystems, we can fill a lot with the missing components of the new discoveries."

Coming from many people, hip bones are long and empty, just like the hip socket is centered on the displacement. The frog's bones show how small they were: a little over half a minute. "Chinle frogs can move it to the extreme of the finger", Stocker added.

Stocker and his team are researchers from Virginia Tech, Arizona Petrified Forest National Park and the Natural History Museums of Florida University in today's magazines. Biology Letters. Fossils are part of the Chinle frog's family, although they are still not called fossil fuels.

"Because we do not name this Chinle frog, because we continue to process the microgravity matrix, it's likely that more cranial and postcranial material will be available for more information," Stocker added.

"The nearby frogs from Ecuador are old," Stocker added. "The oldest of all is 250 million years old from Madrid and Poland, but these species are larger and not equatorial."

Nesbitt also added an Assistant Professor of Geoscience. "We now know that small frogs were about 215 million years ago from North America, we could find other members of the modern vertebrate communities in Triassic."

(During the Triassic, the continents that we know today are the only plants called Pangea, which is currently an equator of about 10 degrees Arizona.)

The group also added this discovery to the phytosaurs directly found with fossil frogs and the first time of other dinosaurs.

The Virginia Tech team graduated from college to postgraduate students through the fossils found in the field, and additional rock samples were collected over and over again. More fossil studies were carried out to perform CT tests. With Stocker and Nesbitt, the graduates who entered the Arizona expedition in the expedition of the 2018 expedition dominated Elizabeth Evans, the School of Performing Arts; Rebecca Hawkins, specializing in Fish and Wildlife Conservation Departments; and Hector Lopez, specialized in biological science.

"Through the practice of Stocker and Nesbitt in Arizona, I have learned that the first paleontologists made fossil discoveries," said Hawkins, in the Natural Resources and Environmental Association. "Every day long trekking, heavy load, heat removal and much more, but, combined with the best patience and luck, you will find something really amazing, it tells a great story."

"The thin bones of the body's small bones, the development of tricky bone recovery methods has enabled an exciting discovery," said Dr. Ben Kligman. Philosophy, student in Pennsylvania Geosciences. "Our goal is to use a similar technique in Chinle Formation, amongst others, to discover early history of small animals, lizards, chops, turtles and mammals."

The research funded the National Science Foundation, the National Geographic Society, the David B. Jones Foundation, the Petrified Forest Museum Association, and the Petrified Forest National Park Friends.
