"Dinosaurs Without Bones" - Lecture and Book Signing at Fernbank Museum

Professor of Practice, Department of Environmental Sciences

What if all of the dinosaur bones disappeared tomorrow - how would we know that dinosaurs existed and how they behaved? Fortunately, dinosaurs left tracks, nests and many other traces during their 165-million-year history.
Join Emory paleontologist Tony Martin, author of the newly released, "Dinosaurs without Bones: Dinosaur Lives as Revealed by Their Trace Fossils," (Pegasus Books) as he shares his insights into dinosaur trace fossils and the lasting marks these animals left on our modern world. A book signing will immediately follow the lecture.
This lecture is made possible by a generous gift from Marty and John Gillin in honor of Carter and Hampton Morris and is part of Adventures in Science Day, presented in conjunction with the Atlanta Science Festival (March 22-29).
