“Current Advances in Applied Paleontology”
The joint meeting of the Pacific Sections of SEPM, AAPG, and SEG in Oxnard, California (May 3-5, 2015) offers a unique opportunity for experts from various disciplines to get together and discuss the current state of “Applied Paleontology.” This topic includes mitigation of fossils as a cultural resource, use of fossils in biostratigraphy for industry, curation, the fossil market, and other applied fields. Talks are encouraged from all aspects of applied paleontology. Information on the meeting and to submit an abstract, please go to http://psaapg.org/2015-call-for-abstracts.
