Annual Meeting Symposium

SVP 2020 Podium and poster Symposia (Invited speakers only)


SVP 2020 will feature two podium symposia:

New geochemical and dental wear approaches to reconstruct the diet, ecology, and physiology of fossil vertebrates
Conveners: Thomas Tütken, Jennifer Leichliter, Michael Weber, Daniela Winkler

The application of non-destructive (dental wear) or minimal invasive (geochemistry) analytical methods to study vertebrate fossils has gained increasing importance to obtain quantitative information on fossil animals and their way of life. In the last decade the toolbox of geochemical proxies available for reconstructing the paleobiology and paleoecology of extinct vertebrates has expanded rapidly and significantly. This symposium will showcase the validation and application of innovative, state-of-the-art geochemical and dental wear methods to gain new, quantitative insights into the paleobiology of fossil vertebrates.

Frontiers in Paleoneurology and Neurosensory Evolution Convenors: Alan Turner & Amy Balanoff

Rapid advances in the fields of neuroanatomy and neurosensory evolution and their increasingly common incorporation into studies of fossil material in the form of endocasts makes now a critical time to assess the state of paleoneurological research—where we are and where we are headed. This symposium will highlight contemporary paleoneurological studies, focusing on: the integration of endocast studies with the broader neuroscience community; cutting edge imaging techniques and extending work to stem lineages; understanding ontogenetic effects on phylogenetic patterns; and how neuroanatomy changes during the adaptive radiations/ecological transitions witnessed in the fossil record.
