Dr. Kurt Spearing

Who are you?  and  What are you doing here?!?

I get these questions a lot

My Name is Kurt Spearing I have taught in higher education since 2001-ish and I have been at Morningside since the fall of 2010. 

My research interests are varied.  I started out at Michigan State University working with fossil bryozoans.  Since then have been involved in projects involving dinosaurs and extinct marine reptiles (Mosasaurs) but my favorite study animals are fossil cats.  My research interests involve the paleobiology, paleoecology, phylogeny, systematics, and taxonomy of living and fossil members of the mammalian family Felidae.
