About this book

Foundations and Applications of Trace Fossils provides a framework to use trace fossils to better interpret the sedimentological, stratigraphic and paleontological record, particularly as integrated with other geological datasets. Secondly, the book aims to update ichnology research to reflect recent developments. It presents introductory materials, including the history of ichnology, the conceptual framework, and key definitions. In addition, the book introduces modern topics such as neoichnology and process ichnology. Using this foundational information, the multidisciplinary audience can solve sedimentological, paleontological and paleoenvironmental problems.

Biography

Murray Gingras earned a PhD in Sedimentary Geology (1999). Since that time, Gingras has been recognized as one of the international leaders in ichnology (using trace fossils and other paleoecological knowledge to interpret the rock record). Gingras is known particularly for his work on modern deposits and neoichnology. His work has also focused on understanding the influence of bioturbation on permeability and porosity distributions in reservoir strata.

James MacEachern earned his PhD in Geology in 1994. Since then, he has focused his research on the integration of ichnology with sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy for refining facies models. MacEachern's work seeks to place applied ichnology into the reach of classical sedimentary facies analysts.
