Lizards preserved in Amber! New to science! The order Squamata is represented today by lizards and snakes (9900 species). Lizards were probably established by the Late Jurassic, although their ancestors were likely present in the Triassic. Amber deposits around the world have been trapping lizards since the Early Cretaceous. In this talk we will be traveling to three continents and six geological horizons to see what these fossil resins have to tell us about the history of these animals in the planet.
The lecture will be held TODAY. Novmber 30, 2016, but tickets are still available!
