Michael Ryan asked me to distribute this:


As part of the Fifth International Congress of Comparative Physiology
and Biochemistry, the host committee will be convening a special one
day symposium on palaeophysiology.  This symposium of invited speakers
will pair some of the world's leading palaeontologists and

and encouraging audience interaction.
