The Trouble with Trilobites - with Dr. Danita Brandt  (Public Programs)

Join us for a virtual talk with Dr. Danita Brandt, "The Trouble with Trilobites."

Trilobites, distant relatives of horseshoe crabs, were once the most abundant and diverse animals in the Paleozoic seas that covered most of the Earth (including Michigan) 500 million years ago. However, by the end of the Paleozoic Era, trilobites were extinct. What happened to the trilobites, and why didn't horseshoe crabs suffer the same fate?

This webinar is set for Tuesday, February 9 from noon - 1:00 p.m. Register Here:

Dr. Brandt is an Associate Professor in the College of Natural Science at Michigan State University. Her paleontological research interests center on fossil arthropods: their evolution, extinction, paleobiology, paleoecology and trace fossils.
