Lyell Meetings
TMS collaborates, via the Joint Council for Palaeontology, with the Geological Society of London, the Palaeontological Association and the Palaeontographical Society to organise the annual Lyell Meetings. The themes of these are different each year, but the overall concept is to highlight the role of palaeontology in the earth sciences.

Group Meetings
The constituent specialist groups of TMS also organise their own meetings, which are held regularly throughout the year. For details on these, you should refer to the group’s page: Foraminifera – OstracodPalynologyNannofossilSilicofossil.
