[dinosaur] Oldest Paleontologist and Geologist
Boris Sergeyevich Sokolov (Russian) (April 9, 1914 – September 2, 2013) (99
years old) was a Russian geologist and paleontologist. Sokolov authored
reference works on the stratigraphy of Eastern Europe, in particular the fossil
coral records, and created the concept of Vendian period, currently recognized
as largely overlapping, but not fully equivalent to Ediacaran.
