Saturday Morning Physics
Physics (and Chemistry and Biology...) of Mastodons and Mammoths


Add to Cal
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 12/01/2007
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Description: New sites, right here in Michigan and in remote parts of Siberia, combine with new methods of analysis to yield a clearer picture of the anatomy, behavior, and extinction of mastodons and mammoths. Much of our new perspective comes from studies of tusks, the distinctive, ever-growing incisor teeth of elephants and their relatives.

    All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
