Exhibitions Mammoths in Britain
Lecture by Professor Adrian Lister , Research Leader in the Department of Earth Sciences of the Natural History Museum. He obtained his BA and PhD in Zoology from the University of Cambridge, and from 1991 taught at University College London where he became Professor of Palaeobiology, before moving to the Natural History Museum in 2007. His research interests are in the evolution of mammals during the Quaternary ice ages – with special reference to large mammals such as elephants and deer. Adrian Lister has authored nearly 200 scientific papers and his two books on mammoths have sold over 60,000 copies in six languages. Other research interests include the dwarfing of mammals on islands in the Quaternary, and the causes of extinction of large mammals at the end of the ice age. As well as his research on fossil mammals, Adrian Lister also studies the taxonomy of their living representatives, has served on the specialist panels of IUCN for both Asian elephants and deer, and has led expeditions to study living elephants in Nepal, India, Ghana and Borneo. He is a frequent contributor to TV and radio programmes on fossil and living mammals, and is currently writing a book for NHM Publishing entitled Darwin’s Fossils.
