Welcome to new UCMP Research Associates
Welcome to new UCMP Museum Associates
UCMP was invited to develop a paleontology course for UC Berkeley's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Our six-week course will provide an opportunity to share current research, focusing on topics such as biostratigraphy, evolution, extinction, and new technologies that have advanced our understandings. Speakers for this course include: Mark Goodwin, Seth Finnegan, Emily Lindsey, Sarah Werning, Ashley Poust, Pat Holroyd, and Leslea Hlusko.
Jere Lipps, emeritus professor/curator, and UCMP alum Nick Pyenson, now at the Smithsonian Institution, have organized and will present a symposium at the upcoming AAAS meeting in Boston, Feb. 17, on "Evolution of Giants The Great Whales." Six speakers will delve into the evolutionary history of these whales, development of migratory patterns, effects of sonar, and the history of whaling.
Get them started early on paleontology!
