November 18, 2008

Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology and Assistant Professor of Geology Jaelyn Eberle co-presented the first Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) field and topical conference August 5-7, 2008.

The participants visited and examined several sites near Medicine Bow, Wyoming, with examples of vertebrate fossils in a detailed geologic context to learn how the field study of rocks can be applied to paleontology.
