The dawn of the Cambrian explosion of life: The Scottish fossil evidence

25 February @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The North West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark invites you to an online talk on Scottish fossils from the Cambrian. Dr Frankie Dunn is a palaeontologist and an Early Career Research Fellow at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and Merton College. Frankie’s research focuses on the origin and early evolution of animals and particularly on fossil record of the late Ediacaran Period (approximately 570 – 540 million years ago). The aim of this research is to understand how animal bodyplans evolved in deep time, before the divergence of the living animal lineages.

The talk will be hosted on zoom and is free to attend. Register here.
