Early animal evolution: evidence from the Ediacaran & Cambrian

Study the evolution and palaeobiology of animals with an honours project in the areas of:

  • Palaeobiology of Beltanelliformis
    • Explore the palaeobiology of Beltanelliformis, the most enigmatic aggregating organism from the Ediacara Biota.
  • Behavioural and palaeoecological analysis of Kangaroo Island fossils
    • Undertake a behavioural and palaeoecological analysis of the trace fossils from the Marsden Sandstone on Kangaroo Island and its bearing on the overlying Emu Bay Shale Lagerstätte.
