Dinosaurs In Living Color
Professor Julia Clarke will bring the study of dinosaurs to life and explore questions of where birds fit in the paleontological record. Clarke will present recent research and discoveries that enable scientists to paint a vibrant picture of what these animals looked like, compare them with living ancestors, and explain how everything you knew about dinosaurs may be wrong.
