What can shell damage tell us about ancient ecosystems and their evolution? Holes and scars on fossil shells tell the story of the constant struggle for survival that is as old as life on the planet. These traces of predator-prey interactions can be found throughout the fossil record, and they are crucial to our understanding of the evolution of life, as we know it.

Judith Nagel-Myers is an Assistant Professor teaching Paleontology in the Geology Department of St. Lawrence University. Her research interests are the form of fossil invertebrates and their function.
