Emeritus Professor Carl Stock Awarded 2022 Gilbert Harris Award by the Paleontological Research Institution

Emeritus Professor Carl Stock was awarded the Gilbert Harris Award in recognition of career excellence in systematic paleontology.

Prof. Stock retired from the faculty in 2008, and dedicated a significant part of his research to the systematic study of stromatoporoids – ancienct reef-building sponges that lived in the benthic zone of Paleozoic oceans. His work helped highlight the importance of reef systems during this period, and promoted the importance of this enigmatic and little-studied fossil organism.

Congratulations Carl!!
