The Museum of Evolution in Uppsala has ancient remains of the oldest sea reptiles in their fossil collection. Such rare finds have challenged long-held theories of the Mesozoic Era as the origin time of major reptile lineages. Meet Dr. Benjamin Kear in a talk about the search for evolutionary missing links and the central role of museums in sustainable development of natural and cultural heritage.
