Santa Cruz Formation, Patagonia


I am involved in a yearly field project to recover Miocene mammals from localities of the Santa Cruz Formation of Patagonia. This project is in collaboration with Duke University (U.S.A.) and Museo de La Plata (Argentina) paleontologists. This project has yielded numerous well-preserved specimens of fossil mammals, including primates.
