Society of Vertebrate Paleontology Annual Meeting 2015

Welcome to our coverage of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) annual meeting from Dallas, Texas. This year was the 75th anniversary of the society and Caitlin headed down to find out what vertebrate palaeontology researchers and educators had been up to since we last heard from them in Berlin. 

We have three mini-episodes for you reporting from the conference. In the first we talk to education specialists working with schools and the general public to spread the vertebrate palaeontology word, in the second we meet scientists from the SVP and in the final part we chat about the history of the meeting on its 75th birthday.

Part 1 – Education

Part 2 – New research


Part 3 – History of SVP

The conference was back in the United States this year after a hop over the pond to Berlin in 2014. The main talks and workshops ran over four days with fieldtrips near Dallas before and after.
