This was a very long, peer-reviewed research paper based on field work I performed in Namibia in 2006. During this field season, we discovered the richest trove of fossilized burrows from early animals that have ever been described. In this paper, I led a team to analyze the environment these burrows were found in, and the burrows themselves, in order to see what we can learn about the animals that made these early burrows; including their identity and environmental tolerance.
