Future Talks

As we are moving our activities online, we are incurring new costs. Your donation helps support our new channels.



Our YouTube Channel has recordings of past talks.

To keep numbers manageable, you will need to register via Zoom. Information about using Zoom will be supplied with your booking. You will need to install the Zoom app to your computer, tablet or Smartphone. You only need to book one place for each computer, so if you are sharing a screen with someone in your house, you only need one. 

We will open the Zoom meeting shortly after 7pm to give people ample time to get connected, settled in and chat. Please arrive by 7.25pm

 A recording will be available after the event on our YouTube channel. If you prefer, you can watch live on YouTube, but with less participation

Neil Gostling is Lecturer in Evolution and Palaeobioloy in the School of Biological Sciences, and the University of Southampton. Over the last year, he, and his students and colleagues have had to adapt to the global situation, but science hasn’t stopped, and neither has he. A new dinosaur (or 2); and a new understanding of mammalian physiology at the groups appearance, are just two of the things he will discuss in his talk.

When he is not working on dinosaurs or stem mammals, Neil is the programme leader for the Zoology degree programme, and the MRes Evolution, from the Galapagos to the 21st Century. This exciting programme takes students to the Galapagos, and explores evolutionary processes across 9 Schools’ at the University of Southampton, from Biology to engineering, medicine to philosophy. Evolution underpins the science of biology.
