Experimental work on living Triops longicaudatus

Josephina Hartung:

During my internship at the Dinosaur National Monument in Utah, USA I started working with park paleontologist Dr. Daniel Chure on potential notostracan trace fossils from the Triassic Chinle Formation. Other than writing, I do experimental work on living Triops longicaudatus to reconstruct its traces and environment. Currently I’m about to finish my undergraduate Thesis: “PALEONTOLOGICAL ANALYSIS OF UNIQUE, ABUNDANT AND SUBPARALLEL NOTOSTRACAN TRACE FOSSILS FROM THE UPPER TRIASSIC CHINLE FORMATION IN DINOSAUR NATIONAL MONUMENT, NORTHEASTERN UTAH, USA"
