SEPL participated in two conferences this summer: the International Union for Quaternary Research Congress in Rome and the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Mammalogists in Anchorage. Both conferences were a huge success, with a total of eight presentations and posters. Highlights included first-time meetups between longterm collaborators and a “family” mixer with all academic descendants of the Barnosky and Hadley Labs (pictured). Also, Julia Schap met up with collaborators from the Kenya National Museums, Texas A&M, Texas State, North Dakota State, and Cambridge in Nairobi, Kenya. Together, they scoured museum to gather and measure trait data for African mammals and herps. Overall, SEPL has had an incredibly productive and exciting summer!
