Answer 1:

That's not something I personally have ever studied - BUT data are data, so what you found is what you found. Science is about finding out what hasn't been known before, and what one person finds out is worth reporting! By the way, in this day and age, science is so big that no one person can do all of it. Thus, scientists specialize in one or another field - mine is fossilized plants.
