Insect Damage
There aren't as many insect fossils as there are plant fossils. Palaeobotanists (scientists who study ancient plants and trees) keep track of ancient insects by observing the damage they inflict on the now-fossilized leaves they lived on. Each group of insects has a way of damaging leaves. In this game, you will try to match an insect to the type of leaf damage it caused.
