Down the Rabbit Hole: Caves and Deserts as Windows onto a Time before History
In this presentation Rod will share his passion for vertebrate palaeontology, the challenges and the excitement of exploration and discovery, the pleasure derived from reading journals and publications of those that went before. It is an interest that has sustained him for more than 50 years.
Rod will briefly outline the results of research into Australia’s extinct megafauna and changing climate spanning the last 8 million years. It is a record gleaned from the caves, swamps and deserts of South Australia and the Northern Territory.
It is an unfinished story, a story that poses more questions than it answers, questions that draw on many aspects of the natural and physical sciences in a never ending search for answers.
Presented by Professor Rod Wells, who established the discipline of vertebrate palaeontology at Flinders University.
