WN@TL: “Having a Bone to Pick: The Ins and Outs of Reconstructing Dinosaur Anatomy”

January 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Speaker: Scott Hartman, Integrative Biology

Bio: Scott Hartman is a paleontologist specializing in functional anatomy, evolution, and mass extinctions. A professional scientific illustrator and consultant for 25 years, he has supplied skeletal reconstructions for dozens of print, educational and media projects including Dinosaurs: The Textbook, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Walking With Dinosaurs movie.

Description: What can we know about the anatomy and habits of long-extinct organisms? Join us to see how new tools and old bones unravel the mysteries of how extinct organisms worked and lived. We will examine how dinosaur anatomy can help us appreciate unique aspects of avian anatomy today, and how some dinosaurs managed to approach the size of whales while living on land.
