SVP 2019

79th Annual Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology

Wed, 09 Oct 2019 12:00:00 AM – Sat, 12 Oct 2019 11:59:59 PM

The 79th meeting will be only the third SVP to be hosted outside of North America, and the first one in the Southern Hemisphere. The meeting is co-hosted by The University of Queensland and the Queensland Museum. Although vertebrate fossils were first recognised in Australia by Europeans in the 1830s, global interest in the continent’s vertebrate fossil record was invigorated in the 1950s and 1960s following the fieldwork and research of American paleo-mammalogist, Dr Ruben Stirton, and his team of students including Richard Tedford and Michael Woodburne. Interest in Australian vertebrate paleontology grew considerably after that time, culminating in the inaugural Conference on Australasian Vertebrate Evolution, Palaeontology, and Systematics, an informal, voluntarily organised biennial meeting first held in Brisbane in 1987. The 79th SVP meeting represents a coming-of-age for Australian vertebrate paleontology.
