    yes. Do you have any specific instances you are thinking of with this question?

    especially inside the last 600 million years there's enough evidence left to make it possible to join up sufficient pieces of the jigsaw to get an idea of the overall picture

    This website may look at first glance as if it is someone's lighweight blog, but the pedigree of the researchers is excellent. It demonstrates what can be done even with a complex history on a tectonically active planet where much of the evidence is destroyed or greatly altered, physically, chemically and geographically.
