Entry from British & World English dictionary
Definition of fossil record in English:
The record of the occurrence and evolution of living organisms through geological time as inferred from fossils.
- All of this splitting is to make the human fossil record conform to the fossil record of other groups.
- Actually the real reason there are gaps in the fossil record is because of geological changes over time.
- Moreover, for this phase of metazoan evolution, the fossil record is extremely poor.
