MSU Organizes the 7th International Meeting on Mesozoic Fishes-Systematics and Palaeobiogeographic Patterns
 
On August 1 – 7, 2017, the 7th International Meeting on Mesozoic Fishes-Systematics and Palaeobiogeographic Patterns was organized by the Palaeontological Research and Education Centre in cooperation with the Faculty of Science of the Mahasarakham University (Thailand), the University Claude Bernard Lyon1 (France), and the Natural History Museum of Geneva (Switzerland) at Mahasarakham University, Thailand.
 
The meeting was presided over by President of Mahasarakham University, Prof. Dr. Sampan Rittidech, and attended by seventy national and international participants interested in fish paleontology.
 
Dr. Warawut Sutreetorn, the Director of the Palaeontological Research and Education Centre at Mahasarakham University stated that this meeting is dedicated to reflect the progress in Mesozoic fish research that has been accomplished in the past 25 years since the first meeting in 1993, to discuss old and new methodologies, and to present novel information about the evolution, diversification, and the palaeobiogeography of fishes during the Mesozoic.
 
During the four days of the scientific sessions which took place from August 1– 4, 2017 at Mahasarakham University, our respected speakers, Prof. Cavin, Lionel and Prof. Cuny, Gilles, shared their experience and expertise on the following topics, respectively: “Thai bony Fish Fossil and Geology of Thailand” and “Recorded of Chondrichthyan Fossil in Thailand”. 
 
Besides, on August 5 – 7, 2017, the participants had an opportunity to experience a three-day field trip to visit several fish localities of the Khorat plateau in the Isan region (the northeastern part of Thailand) and to visit the Siridhorn Palaeontological Museum.
