Paleogene fossil floras of southwestern Wyoming.

Fluvial and lacustrine deposits in SW Wyoming record an outstanding sequence of well preserved Paleocene and Eocene compression and impression floras that provide critical insights into floristic evolution and plant paleoecology in the Rocky Mountains during a time of significant environomental changes. Participants will collect fossil leaves, wood, and fruits from a time series of representative sites in the Fort Union, Wasatch, and Green River Formations to learn about floral composition and turnover, paleoclimate indicators in the floras, and the richly informative record of plant-insect feeding associations preserved in the leaves.The field trip will depart from the Snowbird hotel 7:30 am Thursday July 30, and return Saturday August 1, both to Salt Lake City Airport (3:00 pm), and Snowbird (4:00 pm).
Lodging on Thursday and Friday evenings will be at the dormitories of Western Wyoming Community College in Rock Springs Wyoming. Participants should be prepared for short hikes over rough terrain to reach the fossil localities.
