Inaugural Lecture presented by Professor Richard Twitchett

Marine mass extinction events: past, present and future

The evolution of life on Earth has been punctuated by extinction events that were associated with, and potentially caused by, major climatic changes such as global warming. Past environmental changes, and the responses of individual species and entire marine ecosystems to them, may be recorded in the rock record.

This presentation will show how analyses of the rock and fossil records provide us with windows into the past that not only demonstrate how ancient ecosystems fared during past episodes of temperature rise, but may be helpful in predicting how modern ecosystems will respond to current and future environmental change.
 
All welcome. Please contact Paula Simson for further information.
