How to Turn Dinosaurs into Crocodiles


Matthew Lamanna, University of Pennsylvania


Matt is a doctoral candidate in dinosaur paleontology studying under Dr. Peter Dodson at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania.  In this talk and slide show Matt will address the question of the occurrence of ornithischian  ("bird-hipped") dinosaurs of the latest Cretaceous period on the African continent.  This study  evolved out of research on a misidentified humerus discovered in the Egyptian Geological Museum in Cairo during the 2000 expedition of the Bahariya Dinosaur Project.
