By carefully digging, we have found that each trash pit shows a sequence of layers.
(The principle of superposition was recognized as early as 1669 by Steno.) Reverend Benjamin Richardson and Reverend Joseph Townsend were a couple of early geologists involved in this work. Obviously, even Lyell was not pushing evolution at the time.By 1830 Lyell's famous textbook, Principles of Geology, came out. Such was the age of the great creationist geologists!The principle of faunal succession in the geologic record was established by direct observation as early as 1799 by William Smith. The State Education Department does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, religion, creed, disability, marital status, veteran status, national origin, race, gender, or sexual orientation in the education programs and activities which it operates. As an example, nine cases of type anthozoans and six cases of "E"-anthozoans are followed by 49 cases of stratigraphically arranged anthozoans. Focus of collections.--Although most of the specimens illustrated by James Hall in the Paleontology of New York were sold at the end of the nineteenth century (known purchasers include the Museum of Natural History, University of Chicago, Beliot College, University of California-Berkeley), the Paleontology Collection is representative of the careers and publications of a number of paleontologists. Clarke; Silurian-Devonian brachiopods and corals of the northern Appalachian Basin; Silurian eurypterids, largely from central and southeastern NYS; lower Upper Devonian fish from Miguasha, Quebec; Lower Devonian corals, eastern Quebec; pyritized Lower Devonian echinoderms from the Hunsruckscheifer; Lower Devonian trilobites of the Helderberg Group, eastern NYS; and Devonian trilobites and mollusks from Turkey, the Falklands and Brazil; collections from the early 1900s. Ruedemann; Ordovician-Silurian graptolites of NYS, Ontario, Germany, Sicily; lower Middle Ordovician radiolarite thin sections; Upper Ordovician mollusks (primarily bivalves) from Lorraine Group, northwest NYS; collections from early-middle 1900s. Bell; large slabs with articulated echinoderms from the Verulam Formation (Middle Ordovician, Ontario) and extensive hardground surface with edrioasteroids (Lower Devonian, Manlius Limestone, central NYS; undescribed collections from 1970s. Landing, E., ed., Studies in Stratigraphy and Honor of Donald W. Address correspondence to New York State Geological Survey, 3140 Cultural Education Center, Albany, NY 12230. 1, published every year, includes listings of current geological research being done in New York State, and recent publications and theses on the geology of the State. 2, published as needed (every two or three years) includes a complete list of the publications of the New York State Geological Survey, their availability and prices. Stratigraphic collections.--Most of the NYSM Paleontology Collection (over 80%) consists of "stratigraphic collections" of the major taxonomic groups.

Principles of Stratigraphy Stratigraphy is the study of strata (sedimentary layers) in the Earth's crust.
