The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs
This talk will tell the story of how dinosaurs originated, rose to dominance, evolved into spectacular forms like giant long-necked sauropods and flying birds, and ultimately went extinct (except for birds). In doing so, I will highlight research from my palaeontology group in GeoSciences, and how this work is contributing to our understanding of dinosaur evolution and extinction.
