The Paleontological Society Short Course on Echinoderm Paleobiology will look at recent advances in the study of ancient echinoderms (sea urchins, sea stars, crinoids and related taxa) through a series of half hour lectures and discussions. Presentations will be given by a diverse group of scientists including many international and early career professionals. Their long evolutionary history and high taxonomic diversity coupled with a highly complex skeleton and delicate taphonomy make echinoderms ideal taxa with which to study many important areas within paleobiology. Topics include the taxonomy, paleoecology, taphonomy, faunal studies, techniques, and many others.
No registration required, just come to the course onsite. Location is TBD and will be updated here as we get closer to the meeting.
