Purpose: To provide a geologic overview of the Trenton Group at West Canada Creek, New York, consisting of information on the geologic setting, the sedimentary geology, and the paleontology with descriptions and photographs of fossil specimens in the Museum of Comparative Zoology's (MCZ) Collections at Harvard University. This website is written at a level for undergraduate students with a background in basic geology.

Website Content and Design: This website was created in Dreamweaver MX 2004 on a PC using Microsoft Windows and Internet Explorer. Social History and Geology content and design by Sean R. Cornell (Graduate Research Assistant, Department of Geology, University of Cincinnati). Paleontology and Fauna content and design by Jessica D. Cundiff (Curatorial Assistant, Department of Invertebrate Paleontology, Harvard University) and Matthew J. Corbett (Undergraduate Co-op Student, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Northeastern University)

Content editors: Carlton E. Brett (Professor, Department of Geology, University of Cincinnati) and Frances R. Caudill (Curatorial Assistant, Department of Invertebrate Paleontology, Harvard University)

References and Bibliographies: All references and texts that are used or mentioned within the website have been collected together into two separate bibliographies. One for the Social History and Geology sections and another for the Paleontology section.

Website Imagery: Most images have rollover features and/or links to various parts of this website (such as a link from a thumbnail to a larger version) that can be activated by moving the cursor over or clicking on an image.

Scale of Photographs: Photographs of MCZ specimens are not to scale, but actual size measurements for each specimen are given in the photo caption.

Printability: Due to page layout and image size some parts of the website may be difficult to print.
