Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Dianne Edwards CBE FRS, Professor Liam Dolan FRS and Dr Paul Kenrick

New discoveries in the fields of developmental and functional biology are shedding light on the origins of land plants. We explore how exceptional fossils from our earliest preserved terrestrial ecosystem – the 400 million year old Rhynie Chert – can be integrated into a neobiological understanding of the evolution of plants and their interactions with other organisms and their environment.

Future Meeting: Lyell Meeting 2017

Event Date: Tuesday, March 7, 2017

The Geological Society, Burlington House Sedimentology and geomorphology have traditionally been seen as fields in which physical, and sometimes chemical, processes dominate completely. Even in settings where biological processes have long been recognised, for example in marine carbonates, focus has been almost entirely on metazoans. This is curious, because microbial communities since the Pre-Cambrian, have suffused all sedimentary environments on Earth, and at least half global biomass is prokaryotic. Are all these microbes simply bystanders?

The 14th International Ichnofabric Workshop will take place in Taipei under the auspices of the Department of Geosciences, National Taiwan University and the National Taiwan Museum. We cordially invite oral and poster presentations dealing with all aspects of ichnofabric, ichnology, and sediment organism interaction. The workshop will include an intra-workshop field trip to the NE Coast of Taiwan where uplifted Cenozoic sandstones offer exquisite exposure of the trace fossils and their sedimentary context.

SVPCA is a meeting for current research in vertebrate palaeontology and comparative vertebrate anatomy, and has been held annually in the UK, Ireland or France since 1953. The meeting is held in conjunction with SPPC, a forum for discussion of fossil preparation, conservation, and related topics co-organised with the Geological Curator’s Group.

Every few years the International Meeting on Taphonomy and Fossilization brings together palaeontologists, archaeologists, biologists and sedimentologists as well as other researchers interested in all of aspects of taphonomy, the study of decay and fossilization of organisms.

Previous Taphos meetings have been held in Madrid 1990, Zaragoza 1995, Valencia 2002, Barcelona 2005, Granada 2008, Tübingen 2011 and Ferrara 2014.
