Virtual Badger Talk from Rice Lake, WI: "North America’s Oldest Winged Dinosaur: The Evolution of Avian Flight"

Speaker: Dave Lovelace

Event Details

Thursday, October 1, 2020
12:30-1:30 p.m.
The turn of the century saw a new revolution in our understanding of dinosaur evolution and their relationship with modern birds. Hundreds of new specimens, mostly from Asia, have illuminated a surprisingly diverse array of winged (paravian) non-flying feathered dinosaurs. In 2004 an accidental discovery of a tiny meat eating theropod dinosaur started a 15 year project for three undergraduates from the University of Wyoming.
