Join Professor Jason Hilton for their Inaugural Lecture;

The Permian vegetational Pompeii – an exceptional window into the evolution of early forest ecosystems

Jason Hilton is a palaeobotanist interested in plant evolution in deep (geological) time. He uses fossil plants as evidence of past life on Earth investigating how they evolved and using them as tools for interpreting past environments and climates.

Since joining the University in 2003, Jason has worked on a broad range of topics including the origin and evolutionary relationships of plant group, changes in diversity through evolutionary radiation and mass extinctions events, and plants responses to periods of volcanic driven climate change. More recently, he has been a pioneer in methods to reassess past plant diversity estimates accounting for disarticulation and fragmentation in the fossil record.
