17th Annual Grant Lecture:
Fossils, climate change and the future of life on Earth
Dr Paul Upchurch
Today, living organisms are most diverse in the tropics, but the fossil records suggest that this has not always been the case. Dr Paul Upchurch, from UCL Earth Sciences, presents the latest fossil evidence exploring the complex relationship between global climate change and how animals have been spread around the world. Using examples from his own work in the field of dinosaur palaeontology Paul will reveal how the fossil record might hold the key to more accurate predictions of how organisms will respond to future climate change.
The lecture is followed by a free drinks reception and a private view of the Grant Museum. This event is free and there is no need to book.
