Great Basin Chapter Online Meeting, April 11 at 7:00 PM MDT with speaker Russell Engleman

Join the Great Basin Chapter of Utah Friends of Paleontology for an online meeting, April 11 at 7:00 PM MDT.

Our speaker will be Russell Engelman from Case Western Reserve University, and the title of his talk is A Devonian Fish Tale: A New Method of Body Length Estimation Suggests Much Smaller Sizes for Dunkleosteus terrelli (Placodermi: Arthrodira).

Russell Engelman is a PhD student in the Department of Biology at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Although much of his prior work has focused on Southern Hemisphere mammals (marsupials, South American ungulates, and caviomorph rodents) and size estimation/allometry, as a lifelong resident of Cleveland he has been interested in the Devonian fish fossils preserved around his hometown for as long as he can remember. His research interests in Paleozoic vertebrates include the functional morphology and paleobiology of Devonian arthrodires and the ecosystem of the Cleveland Shale.
