Paul Mickey Science Series: Camels, Carnivores, and Old Collections: Recent Adventures in Iowa Paleontology

  • Location: ISM Research & Collections Center, Springfield
  • Date: Wednesday, January 08, 2014, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Presented by Dr. Chris Widga, Illinois State Museum Curator of Geology

The fossil record of Illinois and Iowa is forever intertwined. Beginning in the mid-1800s, when the two state geological surveys shared personnel, to the present time, when ISM paleontologists are “virtually” involved in excavations of a mammoth site near Oskaloosa, the direction of paleontological research across the region has been performed in parallel due to a shared geologic and scientific history. This presentation will highlight recent research and discoveries on both sides of the Mississippi, including: giant camels from western Iowa, two new records of large, extinct wolves, and ongoing investigations of a multi-mammoth site in Mahaska County.
