Luis Buatois continued his lecture tour during the first week of December with a stop at the University of Muenster (Germany) giving a Department Seminar on the work of animals in space and time. This was followed by a visit to Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia) for an invited talk on the trace fossil record of early Paleozoic evolutionary events and as external of the PhD defence of Ursula Toom. The trip to Estonia includes a visit to the Sarghava Field Station, the most likely host of the next Workshop on Ichnotaxonomy.
Dr. Toom’s research looks at the Ordovician and Silurian trace fossil record of Estonia, with some fantastic tomographic work. Her work isn’t done though! A prolific researcher, Ursula continues to shed light on the ancient life in Estonia from her position at Tallinn University. You can congratulate Dr. Toom and follow her research on her ResearchGate profile, and download her thesis from it’s record here.
