Collection Conversations: Extinctions in the Invertebrate Fossil Record and What They Have in Common With Stock Prices and Stars in the Universe
Dr. Bruce S. Lieberman
Some groups that once were dominant life forms on this planet and found in rocks throughout the state of Kansas and indeed around the world, like trilobites and ammonites, are no longer with us, and many people wonder why. Join us to learn about the invertebrate fossils studied by Dr. Bruce S. Lieberman, see specimens, and find out how the extinction of many fossil groups matches patterns seen in the stock market and also in star systems. Dr. Lieberman will describe the commonalities across these very different systems, and discuss what it means for our understanding of evolution.
