CU Museum Director, Linda S. Cordell was elected to the National Academy of Sciences on May 3, 2005.
Archaeologists have been working in the American Southwest for over a hundred years, where they have identified and described hundreds of pottery types. Unfortunately, there is no Periodic Table of Pots�a centralized resource where students and professionals can go to learn about pottery classification.
Opening January 12, 2009, the Museum�s new BioLounge is an inviting, relaxing, and totally unique space here at the Museum of Natural History. An amalgamation of exhibit, cabinet of curiosities, coffee bar, lounge, and venue for science, art, and music, the BioLounge brings a new approach to the art and science of biodiversity.
Congratulations to both Dr. Karen Chin and Dr. Dena Smith for receiving tenure from the University of Colorado this past fall.
