Episode 3: Palaeontology with Björn Franke
In this episode, I discussed the use of maps in palaeontology, and historic maps in general, with Björn Franke, an MRes student in Biodiversity, Evolution and Conservation at UCL. Björn talked about a couple of particularly nice dinosaur maps. If you're interested in having a look at these, I've listed the full reference to the research paper below. Longrich, N.R., Suberbiola, X.P., Pyron, R.A., Jalil, N. (2021) 'The first duckbill dinosaur (Hadrosauridae: Lambeosaurinae) from Africa and the role of oceanic dispersal in dinosaur biogeography', Cretaceous Research, 120.

Episode 1: An Introduction to Putting Science on the Map
This is the first episode of Putting Science on the Map, a weekly podcast which focuses on how maps are used within different areas of science. In future episodes, we'll have guests joining us to chat about how they use maps within their word. But this episode is a bit of an introduction to give you an idea of what you can expect from the podcast.
