About the Edelman Fossil Park:
Located in South Jersey, the cradle of dinosaur paleontology, the Edelman Fossil Park in Mantua Township, N.J., contains thousands of fossils dating back 65 million years.
The park provides researchers with the best window, east of the Mississippi, into the Cretaceous Period - the heyday of the dinosaurs.
Fossils found at the site, include, among others, marine snails, brachiopods, bryozoan colonies, shark teeth, boney fish, sea turtles, marine crocodiles and mosasaurs.
Dr. Lacovara's team is analyzing the fossils, the sediments and the geochemistry of the site to gain a clearer picture of the period when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
