BIG DINO EVOLUTION:  WHAT NEW FOSSIL DISCOVERIES TELL US
Sat., Aug. 6, 7:00 p.m., Perkins.
Dinosaurs may be the best-known animals from the fossil record.  But what most don't know is how much they show us about how evolution works. 
Come find out how paleontologists are just now getting an understanding of the actual steps in the evolution of the largest beasts ever to walk the earth.  See the fossil evidence for yourself so you can follow the progression of how one line of dinosaurs evolved from tiny to titanic, from meat-eating to plant-eating, and from 2-legged to 4-legged.  Get straight in your mind what happened to this group during the 3 periods of the dinosaurs - - and how the world's land mass divided from the supercontinent Pangea divided up.  Learn about cladistics.  Hear about the adventures of the fossil hunters.  And learn what they're learning about the larger implications for how evolution works.
Speaker:  Fred Heeren.  Q&A & DISCUSSION, TOO.
Fred Heeren is a science journalist and author who has written for The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and a number of science publications, including Nature, New Scientist, Scientific American, ScienceNow, and  The Smithsonian.  His work also appears in the college textbooks Understanding Human Origins and McGraw-Hill’s Physical Anthropology.
