Vedrana Pretković (Granada University) and Nadia Santodomingo (NHM London) visited Naturalis museum during the last week. A small meeting was arranged to discuss progress on one of our publications with the ESRs based in the Netherlands, Nathan Marshall and Vibor Novak.
We also welcome our colleague Aries Kusworo from Indonesia, who is currently working with Sonja Reich and Frank Wesselingh on mollusks from the Bontang gardens.
Already the last NTA! We enjoyed this ineresting meeting in the beautiful Almería province.
Here some impressions of the fieldtrips to the Neogene basins.
With more than 2000 scientist from all over the world coming together to share and discuss their latest research the ICRS was probably the scientific event of the year for the sunshine state and an absolute ‘must go’ for every scientist working on coral reefs . . . and we were part of it: Nadia Santodomingo, Viola Warter, Juan-Carlos Braga, and Ken Johnson, who acted as chair of our Mini-Symposium ’Pantropical palaeontology of Cenozoic coral reefs’.
The agenda for NTA-5 is now available for download. See you in Kiel next week.

The 2nd international Southeast Asian Gateway Evolution meeting, SAGE 2013, which will take place 11-15 March 2013 in Berlin, Germany.
The meeting focuses on the origin, diversification, and conservation of Southeast Asia’s megadiverse fauna and flora against the background of the region’s complex geology and climate history. We aim to attract climatologists, biogeographers, palaeontologists & geologists to this multidisciplinary meeting and look forward to welcoming you to Berlin in March 2013.
