Patrick Getty received coverage in Science News for presentation at GSA

PatrickGettyCongrats to Patrick Getty for the article written in Science News about his presentation “Ancient larvae built predator-thwarting mazes” that was given at the recent GSA Conference in Baltimore, MD!

Here’s an excerpt from the article: “Branching tunnels called Treptichnus embedded inside ancient rocks are among the oldest and most widespread preserved structures built by ancient animals, first appearing about 541 million years ago. The mazelike layout of these subterranean passageways was meant to¬†frustrate unwanted intruders, paleontologist Patrick Getty of the University of Connecticut in Storrs proposed November 1 at the Geological Society of America‚Äôs annual meeting.”
