Why were bugs big? - February 18th

There will be a meeting on Wednesday 18 February. Dr. Simon Braddy will talk on the subject ‘Why were bugs big?’
Dr. Braddy’s PhD research was concerned with eurypterid (sea-scorpion) palaeobiology, particularly their reproduction, respiration (involving exceptionally preserved fossils from the Soom Shale, Lagerstätte in South Africa). He takes a particular interest in the fact that many ‘bugs’ were, in the past, much larger than those we now find.
Meetings are all held in the SH Reynolds Lecture Theatre, Wills Building, Queens Road and start at 19:30. All welcome.
