Extinction is a natural process that occurs on Earth. However, there have been periods in Earth history when large numbers of species have perished in concert, which we deem mass extinction events.
Join us on 23 November at 5pm (UK time) for Erin Saupe’s fascinating online lecture ‘The end of the world as we know it: mass extinctions in the past, the present and the future’. Erin will be discussing her research on mass extinctions and how this work is relevant to the current crisis facing us today.
Erin Saupe is a Tutorial Fellow at St Hugh’s College and an Associate Professor of Palaeobiology in the Department of Earth Sciences. Her research focuses on determining the factors that promote speciation, extinction and shifts in species’ distributions over Earth history.
