Ex situ

Ex situ is a term used when a fossil is found outside the sedimentary location where it was originally from. This can be caused by erosion processes, but also by, for example, excavation work by humans. This can complicate the research of such a fossil. The opposite is the case is in situ, when a fossil is found in the original sedimentary location.
