The Shape-Shifting Skulls of Dinosaurs

Jack Homer—director of one of the largest dinosaur field research program in the world and technical advisor for Steven Spielberg on the Jurassic Park franchise—focuses on the latest discoveries concerning how dinosaur skulls changed as they grew to adult hood, and why it is that some dinosaur species are actually juvenile growth stages of other species in this fascinating talk. Illustrating how scientists got it wrong to begin with and how they figured it all out, Homer discusses field work, his studies in morphology, and osteohistology (the microscopic study of bone).
