Ichnology is the study of traces, such as burrows, trackways, and borings, created within the substrate by living organisms. It is an increasingly important field, having recently been transformed into a multifaceted science at the crossroads of many disciplines. Our research group, based out of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada, delves into the world of ichnology across the entire geologic time scale. Headed by Dr. Buatois and Dr. Mángano, our group examines novel applications of ichnology to geologic problems, both new and old.
