Abstract

The paleontological resources of Bears Ears National
Monument and surrounding areas have only begun to be
revealed by systematic field-based surveys. Randy will
discuss ongoing work in Permian and Triassic sediments
in the northern part of the monument area that have
revealed new insights into ancient ecosystems between
300-200 million years ago. These diverse biotas range
from those containing the first fully terrestrial vertebrates
during the Early Permian, to the earliest dinosaurs in
Utah during the Late Triassic. Find out why southern
Utah is one of the best places in North America to
investigate the evolution of Permo-Triassic organisms
and environments on land.
