Academy volunteer wins national paleontology award
Date:1/14/2008

mong the fossils Rowe discovered at the Red Hill site are an ancient tetrapod that now bears his name, Densignathus rowei; several new species of ancient fishes; rare fossil millipedes and other arthropods; and new species of fossil plants.. He has been acknowledged in more than a dozen scientific papers, and there are more to come based on other fossils he has helped collect. Rowe has been named an honorary research associate of the Academy.

Rowe said he enjoys the physical rigors of paleontological exploration at Red Hill and the chance to work alongside Academy experts and other fascinating people from around the world who are involved in the projects.

Many road cuts add an element of daring and danger because of the sometimes very steep angle of the rock face, said Rowe. The challenge has been how to get to the fossil layers, then figure out how to remove the fossils, and finally how to get your treasures and yourself back down to a safer level without damaging the fossils and with not too much damage to oneself. Along with the thrill of discovery and physical fitness, my horizons of time and place have been greatly expanded.

And Rowes contributions to the Academy have expanded the research program.
