A fossil normally preserves only a portion of an organism, usually that portion that was partially mineralized during life, such as bones and teeth.Trace fossils are the marks left by a living organism, such as feces, footprints or impressions of feathers or leaves.Radiocarbon dates come from organic matter that contain the element carbon.Ice cores, pollen, wood, hair, bone, shell, bird egg shell, and coral are some of the things datable by this technology which depends on measuring the atomic decay rate of carbon isotopes.
Fossils, by definition, are the remains or traces of organisms that lived at least 10,000 years ago.This date marks the end of the Cenozoic Era and the Pleistocene Period on the geologic time scale.Paleontologists consider materials younger than 10,000 years ago “recent”. Scientist Olivia Judson provides this good example of what happens to an adult male gorilla in the tropical rainforests of the Congo; "An adult male gorilla— all 330 pounds of him—will be reduced to a pile of bones and hair within 10 days of his death.
