New Jersey has a rich and varied geologic history with rocks from nearly all of the major Epochs of geologic time.  This site attempts to summarize the fossil record from each of these epochs by providing a systematic breakdown of the fossils found during that time. The site also contains many links to other sites related to New Jersey fossils as well as a summary of scientific papers and books related to New Jersey paleontology and the related geology.
