Yale News: Peabody digitization project facilitates ‘time travel’ to Cretaceous period

Yale News: Peabody digitization project facilitates ‘time travel’ to Cretaceous period. “The Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History houses tens of thousands of fossil specimens collected from the chalk deposits the seaway left behind — from one-celled foraminifera to alpha predators. … The museum has partnered with eight natural history institutions nationwide to digitize their fossil collections related to the seaway in order to enable researchers and students to better understand this once-vibrant and long-disappeared ecosystem.”
