The Nigel Trewin Memorial Lecture 2020

Chip Shops and Drain Cleaners: the Weird World of the Triassic

Dr Nick Fraser, Head of the Department of Natural Sciences, National Museums Scotland

The Triassic is notorious for some of the strangest vertebrates ever to have lived. Fossil assemblages around the world exhibit incredibly different types of fauna both in the terrestrial and marine realms. What brought about this remarkable diversity and why is it particularly relevant to our understanding of today’s terrestrial ecosystems? Nick Fraser will attempt to provide some insights into a range of very different Triassic assemblages from around the world.

The Friends of Hugh Miller and the Edinburgh Geological Society are delighted to host the 2nd Nigel Trewin Memorial Lecture, in memory of Professor Trewin’s many contributions to understanding the geology of Scotland.
