Talk planned on dinosaur research, March 24

A lecture on "Dinosaur Research in the 21st Century" is set for 8 p.m. Monday, March 24, in McCosh 50. Jack Horner, curator of paleontology at Montana State University's Museum of the Rockies, will discuss progress in dinosaur paleontology over the past two centuries, illustrating how ideas have changed with new discoveries and where research is heading.

Horner worked as a research assistant in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton from 1975 until 1982, when he joined the staff at Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. He discovered the first dinosaur eggs in the Western Hemisphere, the first evidence of dinosaur colonial nesting, the first evidence of parental care among dinosaurs and the first dinosaur embryos.

Horner's talk is designated as the Louis Clark Vanuxem Lecture and is part of the University's Public Lectures Series . It will be Webcast live.
