The conference logo shows fossils from three of the famous palaeontological sites in the Glasgow region. Clockwise from bottom left:

  • One of the Lower Carboniferous lycopod stumps from Fossil Grove in the City’s Victoria Park, one of the world’s oldest geoconservation sites and the first to be preserved within a building.
  • A reconstruction of the ‘Bearsden shark’, Akmonistion zangerli Coates & Sequeira, from the topmost Lower Carboniferous lagerstätte to the immediate north of Glasgow.
  • A reconstruction of the largest trilobite known from Scotland (about 22 cm long), the Upper Ordovician cheirurid Hadromeros keisleyensis (Reed) from the Lady Burn Starfish Beds SSSI near Girvan, 90km south west of Glasgow.
