Ancient clams discovered by College of Wooster geologist reveal how Earth rebounded from mass extinction

Ancient clams discovered by College of Wooster geologist reveal how Earth rebounded from mass extinction |
excerpt from above:
Quote:
But if you discover a new kind of ancient clam, as College of Wooster geologist Mark Wilson has done and not just a previously unknown species, but a whole new family of clam species, from a pivotal time 240 million years ago when Earth was recovering from the near extinction of all life what do you get?

Bad jokes about prehistoric clam sauce.

Wilson understands a stegosaurus is sexier than a fossilized sea creature that looks like a lump of mud...
