Fine Art of Paleontology – Devonian Trilobites

Airing On Monday
January 23rd 2017

8:00 pm eastern, 7:00 pm central and 5:00 pm pacific

Natures Talk Show Fine Art of Paleontology Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman will be discussing Devonian Trilobites.

Trilobites were marine arthropods — invertebrates (without a back bone) related to insects and crustaceans. They thrived in an ocean environment that was similar to those where shrimp or lobster live today. Trilobites were among the first arthropods – appearing in the fossil record at the beginning of the Cambrian Period (~600 million years ago).  Highly mobile, these creatures were among the first to develop a hardened exoskeleton composed of chiton (like your fingernail or the shell of a lobster). As a result, trilobites may be found beautifully preserved as fossils today.

The body of a trilobite is divided into three main parts — the cephalon or head, the segmented thorax and the pygidium or tail. The cephalon contains the many internal organs. The thorax contains the intestines and gill structures. The pygidium contains the anus. The name trilobite means “three lobed” in Greek. It refers to the axis that runs from the head to the tail. There is a central axis and a pleural lobe on either side.

Green Scene – Irises

Green Scene – Irises
On Natures Talk Shows The Green Scene,how to properly care for Irises will be the topic of discussion with Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman.

The tall, beautiful iris, named after the Greek goddess who rode rainbows, comes in many magical colors.

Every gardener wants this perennial. Despite its divine origins, it is hardy, reliable, and easy to grow. Irises also attract butterflies and hummingbirds and make lovely cut flowers.

There are some 300 species in the genus Iris. The most familiar irises are the tall (at least 28 inches) bearded irises (Iris germanica).

The distinctive flowers have three large outer petals called ?falls? and three inner upright petals called ?standards.? The falls may have beards or crests. Bearded iris are so-called because they have soft hairs along the center of the falls. In crested iris, the hairs form a comb or ridge.

Most irises flower in early summer. Some, mostly bearded hybrids, are remontant, flowering again later in the summer.

Paleontology – Devonian Tetrapod Evolution

Paleontology – Devonian Tetrapod Evolution
On Natures Talk Shows Fine Art of Paleontology series join Dr.Spencer Lucas, Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman as they discuss Devonian Tetrapod Evolution. The relationship of limbed vertebrates (tetrapods) to lobe-finned fish (sarcopterygians) is well established, but the origin of major tetrapod features has remained obscure for lack of fossils that document the sequence of evolutionary changes. Here we report the discovery of a well-preserved species of fossil sarcopterygian fish from the Late Devonian of Arctic Canada that represents an intermediate between fish with fins and tetrapods with limbs, and provides unique insights into how and in what order important tetrapod characters arose. Although the body scales, fin rays, lower jaw and palate are comparable to those in more primitive sarcopterygians, the new species also has a shortened skull roof, a modified ear region, a mobile neck, a functional wrist joint, and other features that presage tetrapod conditions. The morphological features and geological setting of this new animal are suggestive of life in shallow-water, marginal and subaerial habitats.

#1 Water Wisteria.
#2 Java Moss.
#3 Lilaeopsis.
#4 Amazon Sword.
#5 African Water Fern.
#6 Java Fern. Java Fern is very popular since it is low maintenance and very beautiful. It can be used in just about any area of the aquarium.
#7 Green Tiger Lotus.
#8 Anubias Nana.
These plants are proven to be hard to kill, and tolerable to a variety of water conditions. If this is your first planted tank, you can?t go wrong with these. There are many others so tune in and listen. As always you can chat with our hosts in the chat room on our webpage.
