WE are interested in the origin and evolution of invertebrate animals as informed by exceptionally preserved fossils from Paleozoic deposits. Our research brings together specimen-based traditional paleontology and fieldwork, developmental biology of extant organisms, and state of the art imaging and analytical techniques to study the evolutionary history of euarthropods and their close relatives.

Human Frontier Science Program Early Career Grant to study the water to land transition in euarthropods

March 17, 2022

This week we received the fantastic news that the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) will support an international effort to understand the water to land transition in euarthropods, with emphasis on the evolution of respiratory systems! This highly collaborative research will be funded through the...

IP lab on the cover of the MCZ Annual report 2020-2021

December 17, 2021
The Museum of Comparative Zoology Annual Report for 2020-2021 is now freely available online HERE, and we are honoured that one of the new species described by the lab is featured in the cover! We first came across Thelxiope holmani during the field excursion to the mid-Cambrian Wheeler Formation as part of NAPC 2019 in Riverside, and have since published an...
