The Biota of Early Terrestrial Ecosystems:
The Rhynie Chert
Learning Resource Site
This module is intended to give an overview of all aspects of our present knowledge of the Rhynie chert. It is sub-divided into the following sixteen numbered sections. Many sections are further sub-divided to give detail on particular aspects of the Rhynie chert flora and fauna. Each of the main sections is a self-contained package, however greatest benefit will be gained by going through the material in numerical order.
The images included within this resource provide for the first time an extensive illustration of the content of the Rhynie chert. New discoveries will be added as they are described in the scientific literature.
Note: Unless otherwise stated the copyright of all images on this site is owned by the University of Aberdeen.
