C6L1 Fossils and Evolution Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

Naturally preserved remains, imprints, or traces of past life Fossils
Scientist who studies fossils Paleontologist
Natural breaking down of dead organisms by fungi, bacteria, insects, and worms Decomposition
Minerals replace all or part of the organism; usually hard parts- Ex: petrified wood, dinosaur bones; Found where sediments are layed down Mineralized Fossils
Hard parts are first dissolved and then replaced by minerals; details are not perserved- only shape Replacement
Thin coating of carbon on rock; all living things contain carbon; thin film remains after decomposition of other elements showing image of organism; can show image of soft, fleshy parts Carbonization
Hollow area shape (imprint) of the organism Mold
Water carrying dissolved minerals seeps into the empty space of mold and these harden into a shape; a copy of the shape of an organism Cast
Preserved remains with no change; Tar- La Brea Tar Pits = ice age mammals; Amber- insects; Freezing- woolly mammoth Original Material
Provide evidence of activities of the organism; also trails and burrows; EX: footprints give clue about size, shape, speed, behaivor Trace Fossils
