Next NAS seminar takes serious look at dinosaur owies

The NAS Seminar Series resumes next Friday (Nov. 2) with a visit from Prof. Joseph Peterson of the UW Oshkosh geology program. The title of his presentation is “Dinosores – Injury and Behavior in Cretaceous Dinosaurs.”  A pre-talk social begins at 3 p.m. in Room 317 of the Environmental Sciences Building, to be followed by the presentation from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in ES 328. Peterson has studied injuries in dinosaurs species including tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, and the “thick-headed” pachycephalosaurus. By studying the fossil records and comparing them to modern records, a better understanding of the lives and hazards of dinosaur days can be found.
