Could Jurassic Park really exist? Paleontologist Lowell Dingus will discuss this and more in “The Rise and Alleged Demise of the Dinosaurs” at 7 p.m. tonight Feb. 7, at the Bruce Museum.
Dr. Dingus will present an overview of the evolution of dinosaurs and hypotheses about their extinction — mammals eating their eggs, meteor impact and volcanism. He will finish by posing the question as to whether or not dinosaurs really are extinct.
This lecture is the first in a series of three lectures at the Bruce Museum by leading paleontologists who will discuss the evolution of dinosaurs and the connections between dinosaurs and birds, including what the latest research tells us and why studying them is vital to our understanding the process of evolution.
The lectures are free to Bruce Museum members and students with ID and $5 at the door for non-members. Reservations are strongly recommended.
For more information or to reserve a spot call the museum at 203-413-6740 or e-mail your name and number of guests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
