The geoscience department weekly seminar presents: 

Speaker: Dr. Steve Rowland

Topic: The Fossil Trackway of a Carboniferous Line-Dancing Reptile and the Mystery of a Columbian Mammoth Who Died Standing Up: Wonderfully Weird New UNLV Paleontology Research Projects

Dr. Rowland and his students study the history of life on Earth as recorded in the fossil record, especially the paleontology of Southern Nevada and adjacent regions. His research ranges from the earliest (late pre-Cambrian) animal fossils, to Jurassic dinosaur tracks (and those of co-existing animals) in Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire State Park, to Ice-Age fossils of the Tule Springs area. His history of geology research focuses primarily on the 18th century, especially in Russia.
