Lagerstätten of the World

If you want to have an idea the diversity that Lagerstätten can obtain then check out the map above. If you click on it, it will take you to an interactive map that features Lagerstätten around the world. Or you can click on this link here https://maphub.net/FossilBonanza/Lagerstatte.

Each site will showcase images, brief site descriptions, and a link to a research paper that will explain it in-depth. You can also use a search filter or narrow it by time period.

Over 100 sites are featured. Although it’s by no means complete, it’s very extensive and shows how Lagerstätten can vary by time period, environment, organisms preserved, quality of preservation, and preservation method. If there are any that are missing on here that you feel should be added, let me know and I’ll include it!

I’ll later include a complete list of the map sites so everyone can see what is featured. Thanks for checking it out!
