SVP Field Symposium 2010
John Day Basin Field Conference - Summary
John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Oregon
June 7 - 11, 2010
The 2010 Field and Topical Conferences trip devoted to the John Day Fossil Beds took place from June 7 - 11. Ted Fremd, Skylar Rickabaugh, and Barry Albright, assisted by Kristen MacKenzie and Helen Strassel, wonderfully led the trip. There were 48 participants, of which eight were students. We all had an enthusiastically productive and congenial time. This John Day Fossil Beds field trip was timely in that the last professional trip to the basin was more than 15 years old (as part of the SVP Annual Meeting) and a lot had happened regarding upgrading the basic stratigraphy and chronology of the fossil beds since then, as well as many updates in basic systematic paleontology.
