Not only geologists are in love with rocks, climbers are too. Our Paleobiology student Niklas Hohmann discusses the geology of Franconian Switzerland, our local climbing area close to Erlangen and birthplace of modern sports climbing.Continue
Palaeobiology student Niklas Hohmann connects mathematics and paleontology in unexpected ways. In his contribution for the 1st palaeontologcial virtual congress, he describes how a blurring effect used by Instagram and Photoshop can be used to describe how extinction events are preserved in the fossil record.Continue

The complex interactions between geodynamics and climate change that support biodiversity are among the most fascinating aspects of our world. Using oceanic islands as a model system, this talk will explore the fundamental processes that generate and maintain the unique diversity of life on Earth. Inaugural lecture by the new professor for Systems Palaeobiology on Monday 5th November 17:15.Continue
First and second-year master students in our international program “Palaeobiology and Earth Systems Research Lab” joined our Paleobiology staff on a research retreat in Franconian Switzerland. We had an intense exchange of ideas and planned the research projects as well as seminars and we explore th...Continue
Erlangen paleontologists and TERSANE members met in Paris for the 5th International Palaeontological Congress. A total of 12 talks and keynotes were presented on diverse topics such as latitudinal selectivity, body size and paleobiogeographic patterns during mass extinctions. Diversity patterns and...Continue
