Old Bones, New Insights



A Princeton senior has gained attention for breaking new ground in the study of dinosaurs, providing evidence that among a species of Stegosaurus, males and females had differently shaped bony back plates. Evan Saitta ’14 — who says he has been fascinated by dinosaurs since childhood — made the discovery as part of senior-thesis research that has taken him from a Swiss museum to excavation sites in Utah and Montana. Saitta is a senior in the EEB Department and his thesis advisor is Professor James Gould.
