    Tertiary seas would have looked fairly familiar to us: gastropods and bivalves were very similar to modern forms. Squid replaced the ammonites, which died out at the end of the Cretaceous. Sea urchins and single-celled foraminifera continued to be abundant, but new forms appeared. Sharks and bony fishes were common. fossil fishes from the lower triassic of majiashan, chaohu, anhui province, china Journal of Paleontology A Late Cretaceous (Turonian) Ichthyofauna from Lac des Bois,Northwest Territories, Canada, with paleobiogeographic comparisons with Turonian ichthyofaunas of the Western Interior Seaway.

The Princeton Chert is a fossil locality in British Columbia, Canada, that represents one of the best preserved collections of Eocene Epoch floras in the world, with rich species abundance and diversity. It is located on the east bank of the Similkameen River, km ( mi) south of the town of Princeton in the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen.

The Quilchena fossil locality is dated ( ± Ma) to the Early Eocene Climatic Optimum, and this locality is reconstructed as the warmest and wettest of the Early Eocene upland sites from the Okanagan Highlands of British Columbia and northern Washington by: ().

Horsefly gold miner J. Hobson sent fossil fishes from Horsefly to Ottawa. Lambe () described these fishes and in the same year made his own exploration of the British Columbia Tertiary fossil deposits; Lambe’s collections of fossil plants were described by Penhallow () and his collections of insects by Handlirsch ().

The study of fossil fishes has advanced significantly over the past few years, giving scientists a rare opportunity to understand the origin and early evolution of major vertebrate groups, ranging from the jawless agnathans to piscine gnathostomes (placoderms, acanthodians, chondrichthyans and.

The evolution of fish began about million years ago during the Cambrian was during this time that the early chordates developed the skull and the vertebral column, leading to the first craniates and first fish lineages belong to the Agnatha, or jawless examples include the late Cambrian, eel-like jawless fish called the conodonts.

These fossils became famous when Harvard professor Stephen J. Gould wrote his best-selling book, Wonderful Life. This year a second and possibly more productive fossil site was announced in Kootenay National Park about 25 mi (40 km) south of the Wolcott quarries.

Middle Eocene lacustrine sediments, cropping out in the valley of the Horsefly River, British Columbia, contain abundant fossils of fishes, fish scales, fish coprolites, insects, leaves, and diatoms.

The fish scales, insects, and leaves are preserved in at least three sequences of alternating light tuff and dark sapropel laminae, separated. Fossil fan palm fronds are well known from Eocene sites in the U.S.A.; however, although also known for over years from the Paleogene Huntingdon Formation of British Columbia, the latter are.
