The MnCSE Logo
Our logo was designed by Don Luce, Curator of Exhibits at the Bell Museum of Natural History, who donated his scientific illustration talent to MnCSE. The "Mn" is suggestive of a chemical symbol. The stylized "C" is an ammonite fossil, from an extinct group of molluscs. The stylized "E" is a phylogenetic tree, which is used to illustrate evolutionary relationships among species or higher taxa. The slight spherical distortion suggests a magnifying glass.
