Speaker: Elsa Panciroli, The University of Edinburgh.

Exciting new fossils are being found on the Isle of Skye, Scotland. These include the remains of mammals that lived alongside dinosaurs in the rich Jurassic ecosystem. We will find out more about these latest palaeontological discoveries, and examine how cutting edge visualisation techniques and biomechanical analysis provide a deeper understanding of their ecology, evolution, and role in the history of mammal evolution.
