Please join us Thursday 6th May 2021,
From 6 pm - Talk starts 7:30 pm
Elgin Inn 75 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn VIC 3122
Anne will discuss ‘Australian Fossil Amphibians (mostly not frogs)’ where she has worked on temnospondyls in Queensland, NSW and Victoria. Anne spent most of her working life at La Trobe University where she remains an Emeritus Scholar.
Her earliest work was in the Triassic of the Sydney Basin where sparse temnospondyls had been known almost since the beginning of the colony. A find by Queensland geologists changed her focus to the earliest Triassic Bowen Basin in southern Queensland which has now produced the most diverse temnospondyl assemblage from anywhere in the world. Later finds extended the time range of temnospondyls from the Triassic to the Jurassic in Queensland and Cretaceous in Victoria, and of early tetrapods in Australia back to the Early Cretaceous.
Event commences from 6pm for dinner and drinks (available for purchase), talk starts at 7:30pm.
