Hello, folks: As per the following message from the organizer of the 2008 meeting of North-Central GSA:
I thought that I would send around a friendly reminder to all of the
session conveners. Hopefully, you're working hard at recruiting, begging,
cajoling or otherwise strong-arming your colleagues into participating in
your session at the NC section meeting this April 24 and 25. Please send
them a reminder that the abstract submission deadline is January 29, 2008.
That might sound like its a long way off, but with the Christmas/New Year's
break, that leaves only about 6 weeks. The web site is here.
I am writing to remind interested parties about the following theme session:
16. Late Neogene Continental Ecosystems of North America (Oral)
James O. Farlow, Indiana-Purdue University Fort Wayne, farlow at ipfw.edu
Presentations concerned with all aspects of Miocene and Pliocene freshwater and terrestrial plant (including pollen), invertebrate, or vertebrate paleocommunities and their abiotic context. Presentation content may deal with paleoenvironmental reconstruction, paleoclimatic modeling, taphonomy, paleoecology, ichnology, isotopes, and functional morphology focusing on the late Tertiary of North America, particularly presentations that attempt broad paleoecological or paleobiogeographic syntheses employing multiple lines of evidence relevant to reconstructing particular habitats or biomes, or cross-community, or cross-biome comparisons.
So if this is a topic that interests you, be sure to submit an abstract!
