The Dodo Expedition Weblog

Category : resources

naturalis, the National Museum of Natural History Museum in Leiden, The Netherlands, has a blog on the Dodo Expedition which has ended successfully after a month of fieldwork in June 2006:

"Preliminary analysis of bone material by dr. Julian Hume (Natural History Museum of London) and dr. Lars van den Hoek Ostende (Naturalis) confirms that Mare aux Songes contains a nearly complete fossil fauna assemblage of Mauritius. Preliminary analysis by, dr. Vincent Florence (University of Mauritius) and dr. Claudia Baider (MSIRI) suggests also a largely complete fossil flora is present." - Source: Press Release

The expedition team has also just issued a press release suggesting that a 'natural disaster wiped out a significant part of the Dodo-ecotope.' This appears to add yet another cause to the Dodo's extinction. See the Reuters link below for details.
