DVPS March 2002 Speaker: Tom Lipka

For those of you in the Philadelphia, PA area next week, please consider attending the following presentation: 
The Delaware Valley Paleontological Society
 (In conjunction with their regular monthly meeting)
Presents:  Thomas Lipka      "A Survey of Arundel Clay Paleoecology"
Tom is an electronic technician with the city of Baltimore who in his "spare" time does geobiological research, oversees and specializes in fossil recovery from Maryland's Arundel Clay formation, one of the few Early Cretaceous dinosaur sites along the east coast of the United States.  Examples of his most recent finds over the last decade of the last century include diverse vertebrate fossils (Mammal jaws w/ teeth, Nodosaur teeth, turtle scute fragments, croc teeth, gastralia, ribs, tendon fragments, conifer cones and numerous other bone fragments) and plants.  He has published more on Maryland's Early Cretaceous fossils than anyone since the pioneering paleontologists of the early 20th century.  Tom will bring some fossils  and casts to supplement the talk as most people have YET to see any Arundel body fossils.
    DATE:   Thursday, March 28, 2002
    TIME:    7:30 P.M.
    PLACE:  The Academy of Natural Sciences  in Philadelphia, 19th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.  The Commons Room, 19th St. entrance.
