The History of Life Interns conducted original research on the body size evolution in echinoderms and ostracods.  Seven groups, consisting of 15 interns, presented their research at the most recent Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union.  Their poster session took place on Thursday, December 12th from 9:00 AM - Noon at the Muscone Center (Hall A-C Moscone South) in San Francisco.
