The Application of Ichnology
to Palaeoenvironmental and Stratigraphical Analysis.

. The stratigraphic succession of the Cambrian in this area is subdivided into four groups: the Taroudant, Tata, Feijas Internes and Tabanit groups, dominated by siliciclastic sediments, overlain by the transgressive Ordovician Fezouata Shale (Feijas Externes Group).

Detailed study of these indirect fossils, called ichnology
(think CSI meets Jurassic Park), provides a wealth of information about how dinosaurs may have behaved.
