Great Basin Chapter Online Meeting, May 9 at 7:00 PM MDT with speaker Dalton Meyer

Join the Great Basin Chapter of Utah Friends of Paleontology for an online meeting, May 9 at 7:00 PM MDT.

Dalton Meyer, a PHD candidate at Yale University will present, From Utah to Europe: Jurassic Fossils Tell the Tale of Early Lizard Evolution. The talk features Dalton’s work on fossil lizards from the Morrison Formation of Utah, and what they tell us about the origins of major groups of modern lizards; as well as how they relate to the Late Jurassic lizards of Germany, and what all of these fossils tell us about the beginnings of the most diverse group of modern tetrapods. 

Dalton is a PHD candidate at Yale University studying the evolution of lizards. He is originally from Loveland, Colorado, and spent his childhood visiting the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Before his time at Yale, Dalton began his undergraduate education at Montana State University before completing it at Colorado State University (go rams!). He has also spent time working with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science as a teen science scholar, and spent a summer working with the paleontological team at Badlands National Park.
