New research projects: Adriana has recently been awarded a DFG-grant to work on the halecomorph fishes of the locality of Brunn, the oldest locality within the complex of the Solnhofen Archipelago.
Oliver also obtained a project from the DFG to continue work on the vertebrate fauna of the Late Jurassic Cañadón Calcáreo Formation of Chubut, Argentina.
Project in focus
One focus of our current research is the Late Jurassic vertberate fauna from the Solnhofen Archipelago of Bavaria, Germany. The aim is to figure out the faunal dynamics of this lagerstätten complex: Do different formations and areas differ in vertebrate fauna, and if so, why?
