We would appreciate your interest in the following session at the EGU
2015 in Vienna, Austria which takes place from April 12th -- 17th 2015.
The Deadline for Abstracts is January 7th, 2015, 13:00 CET.
SSP4.2.5: Conservation Palaeobiology and Taphonomy
Convener: James Nebelsick, Paolo G. Albano & Martin Zuschin
The fossil record encompasses not only deep time palaeontological
records, but also the evolution and fate of species still extant today.
This understanding is of utmost relevance to the ongoing discussion of
anthropomorphic environmental change and its effects on both ecological
and species diversity. Palaeobiology has contributed to the
understanding of current global change by analyzing geological records
of past environmental change by disseminating both abiotic and biotic
factors. Conservation Palaeobiology has demonstrated the potential for
analyzing historical environmental changes by using approaches and
techniques gleaned from diverse fields of earth sciences. The emerging
field of Global Change Palaeobiology aims at a more direct application
of the fossil record for predicting the future. The potential for
accessing information from the sedimentary record at different scales
can provide independent means of investigating current environmental
concerns. A key factor in translating data from the fossil record lies
in understanding how taphonomic processes and filters affect our
knowledge of past environmental and diversity change. We welcome
participation from palaeobiologists, macroecologists,
sclerochronologists, archaeobiologist and allied areas which utilize
environmental records available in skeletal and other remains in order
to gain new insights into global change and its effects on ecosystems.
