SMP 12/1/07 | Physics (and Chemistry and Biology...) of Mastodons and Mammoths | Speaker: Daniel Fisher
Saturday, December 1, 2007
170 & 182 Dennison Building
Speaker: Daniel Fisher (Professor & Curator, Museum of Paleontology and Department of Geological Sciences, U-M)New sites, right here in Michigan and in remote parts of Siberia, combine with new methods of analysis to yield a clearer picture of the anatomy, behavior, and extinction of mastodons and mammoths. Much of our new perspective comes from studies of tusks, the distinctive, ever-growing incisor teeth of elephants and their relatives.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
