Hello,

Previously, South Florida Geology and Paleontology has been weakly documented in a comprehensive form. A new work by Edward J. Petuch and Charles Roberts has taken care of this oversight in a very informative manner - both illustrative and descriptive. With the rapid pace of development in South Florida, it is a race against time to conduct stratigraphic measurements , core samples, and collecting of fossil molluscs. Many areas of South Florida are paved over and forever lost to research. Ironically, the main lines of access for geological research in Southern Florida, have been through development. To access the Pliocene/ Pleistocene in Southern Florida, one must go down at least sixty feet. This can be obtained through canal diggings or quarries that are digging for road fill and fill for housing and business developments. As time advances, Florida is becoming one big stretch of asphalt and concrete. Fortunately, the work that is being described by these researchers is giving information on the geomorphology of Southern Florida that otherwise will be soon lost forever.

Sincerely,
Brian
LCRC
