Session on Konservat-Lagerstätten at the 2013 GSA Annual Meeting

31 May 2013


Considering attending the GSA Annual Meeting in Denver this year? Xiaoya Ma (Natural History Museum, London) and I are inviting contributions to our session #T243: ‘Konservat-Lagerstätten: morphology, ecology, and taphonomy of exceptionally preserved fossils”! This session will be a forum to present frontier research on Konservat-Lagerstätten and will encompass studies focussing on the morphology, ecology, evolution and taphonomy of exceptionally preserved fossils.

Our session will feature contributions from three invited speakers (Derek Briggs, Bob Gaines and Tom Harvey) and other high-profile palaeontologists in the field. Our session is sponsored by the Paleontological Society and the Palaeontological Association (UK) and we can offer financial assistance for early career researchers (PhD students and postdoctoral researchers) to present their work at our session.

Please contact us ([ /] or to express your interest or if you have any questions. Online abstract submission is now open and the abstract deadline is 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time, 6 August 2013.
