Today we will bring the small animal traps in from the field. The weather prediction is for a high of 41 degrees, but with a possibility of rain. It is 32 degrees now, and that is about average for this time of year in this part of Nova Scotia. I am sure some of you are wondering why our research is taking place in Nova Scotia. Chris' lecture yesterday answered that. Nova Scotia is the center of the geological world. Our earth went through billions of years of changes, and when the land mass split into continents, Nova Scotia was near the center of this activity. A longer geological record is here.
