New research into the taxonomy and palaeobiology of temnospondyl amphibians

Lachlan Hart

Temnospondyls are a group of extinct amphibians that lived before, and during the time of the dinosaurs. Throughout their time on Earth, they survived two mass extinctions and spread to every continent. This talk will present new taxonomic discoveries and palaeobiological studies on temnospondyls which have helped us understand more about great survivors.
