Dear Colleagues,

My co-chairs and I invite you to submit an abstract to our topical session titled “Phylogenetic Paleobiology: Good Things Come in Trees” (T100) to be held at the 2019 Annual Geological Society of America (GSA) conference in Phoenix, Arizona (September 22-25).

The application of phylogenetic techniques to paleontological questions has revolutionized our understanding of evolutionary and ecological trends. This session welcomes talks on any aspect of phylogenetic paleobiology (e.g., morphological, ecological, molecular, biogeographical, comparative methods, etc.).

This is a complementary session to the Paleontological Society’s annual short course on Saturday of GSA, titled “Quantitative Methods in Phylogenetic Paleobiology.” Our topical session will provide an open avenue for scientists, and especially early-career researchers, to present their work.

Keynote presentations will be given by Drs. Mana Dembo (Simon Fraser University), Tracy Heath (Iowa State University), and Graeme Lloyd (University of Leeds).

The website for abstract submission is currently open, and the deadline to submit is June 25. For abstract submission and more information about the conference, visit:

Feel free to contact us with any questions and to forward this announcement to others who may be interested.
