The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs

The dinosaurs ruled the Earth for over 150 million years--evolving into spectacular giants like Brontosaurus and T. rex. In this talk, paleontologist Steve Brusatte, author of the book The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs, will recount the story of where dinosaurs came from, how they rose up to dominance, how most of them went extinct when a giant asteroid hit, and how some of them lived on as today's birds. At a time when Homo sapiens has existed for less than 200,000 years and we are already talking about planetary extinction, dinosaurs are timely reminder of what humans can learn from the magnificent creatures that ruled the earth before us.


Professor Steve Brusatte: University of Edinburgh

Steve is a vertebrate palaeontologist and evolutionary biologist who specialises in the anatomy, genealogy, and evolution of dinosaurs and other fossil organisms. He has written over 110 scientific papers, published six books (including the adult pop science book The Rise and Fall of Dinosaurs, the textbook Dinosaur Paleobiology, and the coffee table book Dinosaurs), and has described over 15 new species of fossil animals.
