Institute and Museum of Paleontology

The PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers from the Evolutionary Morphology and Palaeobiology of Vertebrates workgroup of the PIM provided insights into their interesting research. We enjoyed a guided tour through the fossils from the UNESCO World Heritage site Monte San Giorgio, a presentation on how domestication of livestock helps to understand evolution, and traveled to the giant rodents of South America. Additionally, we learned how CT-scanners help to reconstruct the sensory systems of extinct animals.
