Bryozoologists gather in Wales

June 6th, 2018

Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom — A dedicated group of bryozoan experts have gathered this week in Cardiff for the 15th Larwood Meeting. It is a diverse group of biologists and paleontologists, and I am proud to be among them. We approach the delightful Phylum Bryozoa from a variety of perspectives and enjoy the challenge of understanding each other’s work and ideas. As you can see above, these Larwood meetings are small, but we cover a lot of bryozoology in our sessions. Thank you to Caroline Buttler for expertly organizing this event and hosting us at Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales in the Cardiff city center. Today is our first day of the meeting.

This is the front of the main museum building.

My friend Paul Taylor was one of several speakers. His talk was fascinating and inspiring as always.

We had posters as well. This one was designed by Macy Conrad (’18) explaining her Independent Study work (with Paul Taylor and me) in the Campanian of southwestern France. It is officially the first Wooster Geology poster printed on cloth!

I gave a talk on the first day as well, with Caroline and Paul as co-authors. Bryoimmuration: You heard it here first.

The meeting continues through June 8.
