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.

Wonders of the end-Guadalupian (Permian) extinction
The largest mass extinction of the Phanerozoic occurred in two distinct steps. The Permo-Triassic boundary extinction, the second episode (252 Ma), is widely known; however, the first one at the end of Guadalupian (Middle Permian; 259 Ma) was p...Continue
Modern-day global warming appears so dangerous for our future that many geologists/paleontologists claimed for an analogy from the past. Nonetheless, is the on-going warming explained solely by human activity? This talk explores an alternative possible cause of global warming/cooling, not on the earth but in the universe.Continue
