Most of my research involves studies of shallow-water organisms from the Late Ordovician Period, about 455-444 million years ago. Over the years, my colleagues and I have produced a number of papers, research posters, and other media associated with this work.
1. *New* Our review of Ordovician Konservat-Lagerstätten in Manitoba has been published in Geoscience Canada (2012, volume 39, number 4, published in February, 2013). This was a group effort (Young, Rudkin, Dobrzanski, Robson, Cuggy, Demski, and Thompson), providing a status report on many years of field collecting and study.
