Speaking from the point of view of a third-world African scholar, many possibilities remain unknown in terms of vertebrate paleobiology because field expeditions can be very expensive and logistically difficult to undertake.
Scope: Sedimentary Geology and Paleobiology supports studies of: (1) the changing aspects of life, ecology, environments, and biogeography in geologic time based on fossilorganisms; (2) all aspects of the Earth's sedimentary lithosphere its insights into the geological processes and rich organic and inorganic resources locked in rock sequences; (3) the science of dating and measuring the sequence of events and rates of geological processes as manifested in Earth's past sedimentary and biological (fossil) record; (4) the geologic record of the production, transportation, and deposition of modern and ancient physical and chemical sediments; and (5) understanding Earth's deep-time (pre-Holocene) climate systems
