This award-wining website explores the evolutionary transition from fishes to early tetrapods during the Late Devonian (about 360-380 million years ago). It features Red Hill, an important fossil locality in central Pennsylvania, USA.

Devonian Times presents the rich assortment of plant and animal fossils recovered from Red Hill, reviews recent discoveries of Late Devonian tetrapods from other parts of the world, and discusses the evolutionary and ecological developments of the Late Devonian that are associated with the rise of the tetrapods and their colonization of the land.

With the exception of the original photographs, I created and I am responsible for all of its content.
