DENVER, COLORADO-- Almost 1000 paleontologists and enthusiasts met here from 3 to 6 November for the 64th annual meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology. Eating marine mammals may have helped the California condor avoid the fate of many other large scavenging birds that went extinct 12,000 years ago, a paleontologist reported at the meeting.
