Dear List

We invite abstract submissions for the GSA 2017 113th Annual meeting held
at the Hawaiian Convention Center
<https://www.meethawaii.com/convention-center/> in Honolulu. After the
great success of ICRS 2016, we hope that you will come and share your
research with us again on the beautiful island of O‘ahu and enjoy the
variety of activities including fieldtrips
and courses

*Abstract Submission Deadline: 14th February 2017*

*Student travel grants and registration waivers are available.*

*Theme Session T22: *Cenozoic Paleoecology, Paleogeography, and
Evolutionary History of Pacific Marine Life

This session will focus on all environmental and evolutionary aspects of
the Cenozoic (66-0 Ma) history of marine life in the Pacific Ocean at all
temporal and spatial scales. It will include studies employing evidence
from paleoceanography as well as studies employing evidence from the modern
fauna. Of particular interest are studies on the phylogeny of major taxa,
paleoecological or evolutionary adaptations in a changing marine
environment, and the influence of changes in seawater chemistry and
temperature throughout the Cenozoic. Among other things, we welcome studies
that include the reconstruction of the history or coral reef or molluscan
communities. Paleobotany, molecular studies, and micropaleontology are all
meant to be included.

*Registration and abstract submission:* Here!
