* An evening with Professor Jenny Clack titled : Tetrapod World: early evolution and diversity | TWeed *

Wednesday March 8, 2017 | 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm

An evening talk by Professor Jenny Clack, Emeritus Professor & Curator of Vertebrae Palaeontology at Museum of Zoology at Cambridge University specialising in the evolution of early tetrapods.

Tetrapod World early evolution and diversity, or TWeed for short, is a new scientific research project studying fossils and environments from the Early Carboniferous period.

The TWeed project intends to fill in a significant gap in our understanding of how tetrapods moved from the water onto land.

Experts from the universities of Cambridge, Leicester and Southampton, the BGS and National Museums of Scotland are collaborating to study some newly discovered fossils that will help us learn more about the other animals and plants that existed in the Early Carboniferous and the environment in which these evolutionary changes took place.

The event on Wednesday the 8th of March 2017 is free to members of The Stamford and District Geological Society. And for visitors a charge of £3 please. You can also apply for membership on the night.
