Emerita Professor Patricia Vickers-Rich
Emerita Professor Vickers-Rich is a geoscientist with research programs in Ediacaran palaeobiology and polar biotas (dinosaurs and mammals) of the Cretaceous period. She works in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment, in the Faculty of Science at Monash University. Her research spans a broad swath; she co-ordinates large research teams, including the UNESCO International Geosciences Program investigating the origin of Animalia, the Ediacarans. She is also a Research Associate at the Museum of Victoria (1998-present).

Professor Pat RichDr.Rich carries out research programmes in several areas of palaeobiologyas well as preparing books and teaching materials.Palaeobiology:Over the past 10 years Dr. Rich has been involved in prospecting fornew localities of Mesozoic and Palaeogene age (140 million to 20million years of age) and excavating early Neogene (20-15 millionyears) sites to enrich our understanding of vertebrates at theantipodes.Dr. Rich has beeninvolved in cooperative programmes with the Institute of VertebratePaleontology and Paleoanthropology, Academia Sinica, Beijing; the Paleontological Institute in Russia (Moscow) and theMuseo de La Plata and the Museo Egidio Fergulio (Trelew) in Argentina.Dr. Rich is involved in two other projects that are attempting to resolverelationships using soft part anatomy and biochemistry.She and Prof. Walter Bock (Columbia University, NYC) have currently completedanalysis of the muscles of the head of a mummified moa (Megalapteryxdidinus), one of three known in the world.Dr. Rich is also workingwith Dr. Merrill Rowley, Dr. T.H. Rich (Museum of Victoria), and Prof. Ian Mackay (Centrefor Molecular Biology and Medicine, Monash University) as well as graduate student Marion Anderson, on extractingcollagen and DNA from the moa mummy as well as fossil vertebratebones.SELECTED PUBLICATIONSGregory, R.T., Douthitt, C.B., Duddy, I.R., Rich, P.V. and Rich, T.H.1989.Legendre, S., Rich, T.H., Rich, P.V., Knox, G.J., Punyaprasiddhi, P.,Trumpy, D.M., Wahlert, J. & Napawongse Newman, P. 1988.Miocenevertebrates from Thai Shell Exploration and Production Company's NonHen-I(A) Exploration Well, Phitsanulok Basin, Thailand.J.Vert.Paleo., 8(3), 278-289.Rich, P.V. 1990.The Dinosaur Hunter's Kit.Five Mile Press, MelbourneRich, T.H. & Rich, P.V. 1988.A juvenile dinosaur brain fromAustralia.Nat.Geog.Res.4(2), 148.Rich, T.H.V. and Rich, P.V. 1989.Rich, T.H.V. and Rich, P.V. 1989.Rich, P.V. and van Tets, G.F.

Professor Pat Vickers-Rich, Leaellynasaura & Cryolophosaurus
Professor Pat Vickers-Rich, Leaellynasaura & Cryolophosaurus IT WAS the curiosity, unerring patience, tenacity, and sheer hard work of Professor Pat Vickers-Rich and her husband Dr Tom Rich that led to the amazing fossil discoveries in the Otways. Her uncle was horrified, but Pat had unwittingly begun her scientific path in life. At university Pat met her future husband Tom Rich, who was turned on to prehistory when he received the book All About Dinosaurs in 1953 as a Christmas gift. Dr Rich is Senior Curator of Vertebrate Palaeontology & Palaeobotany at Museum Victoria and Professor Pat Vickers-Rich is Monash University's Chair of Palaeontology and founding Director of the Monash Science Centre. Both from the United States, Tom and Pat emigrated to Australia in the Seventies. "We decided if we came to Australia there were more chances of discovering something new, there weren't many palaeontologists doing anything and we don't like crowds," said Pat. Pat said they began prospecting these sites from Fairhaven to Port Fairy over the next five summers. Pat and Tom led digs at Dinosaur Cove over the next decade which resulted in them naming a variety of new polar dinosaurs. "Diversity here in the Otways is very high," Pat said.
