CRETACEOUS & BEYOND: Vertebrate Paleontology of the northern Western Interior

CRETACEOUS & BEYOND: Vertebrate Paleontology of the northern Western Interior - A symposium in Dickinson ND, Fall 2019.

The Badlands Dinosaur Museum in Dickinson, North Dakota, plans to host a conference on North American Cretaceous and Paleogene vertebrate paleontology, sometime around September 2019. The emphasis will be on the evolution, ontogeny, and paleoecology of vertebrates from the Late Cretaceous and Paleogene of North America. Presentations on relevant non-vertebrate fields such as stratigraphy, palynology, paleobotany, and invertebrate paleontology will also be welcome. (more details in survey, link below)

If you are interested, please complete the survey about ideal dates (Aug-Oct 2019) and some questions on format & planning. Based on response, we expect to announce formal dates around December/January.

Thank you.

American Society of Mammalogists

We approached the leaders of the ASM, and they agreed to have us to meet jointly with them at their June 2020 meeting (June 5-9, 2020) in Boulder, Colorado. As part of this joint meeting, we proposed a special SSME plenary session that would highlight some of the cutting-edge research happening in our society and hopefully interest you and serve as further incentive for attending.  Of course, the ASM will welcome poster and platform presentation contributions from SSME members at the meeting as well.

1st Conference on Wild and Domesticated Mammal Hair

The WDMH Conference 2019 will be the premier interdisciplinary forum for scientists and practitioners who use mammal hair samples for their investigations. It will provide an ideal academic platform for researchers to present the latest research findings, methodologies, developments and directions in identifying the wild and domesticated mammal hair by morphological and molecular methods.

By attending the 1st Wild and Domesticated Mammal hair conference, you will have an opportunity to meet with colleagues, to discuss and refine our knowledge in this field of science and share your new findings.

Sexual selection: patterns in the history of life

  • Kavli Royal Society Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Sexual selection is potentially an important driver of macroevolutionary processes like speciation and extinction, but this has rarely been tested using the fossil record. This meeting will bring biologists and palaeontologists together to discuss sexual selection’s role in macroevolution, how to detect it in extinct animals and how to measure its influence on the history of life across geological time.
