The fossils of ancient individuals contain clues to how they lived. Dr. Robert S. Feranec, curator of Pleistocene vertebrate paleontology, will discuss how he uses different chemicals in fossilized teeth and bones to understand how and where ancient animals lived, and how that may have changed over time.

This program includes a 20-minute talk followed by brief Q&A. Participants are welcomed to bring their lunches.
