Dinosaur Odyssey: Fossil Threads in the Web of LIfe

February 11, 2010

In the past twenty-five years, more "new" species of dinosaur were discovered and named than in all prior history. Today on Focus, we'll talk to leading expert Scott D. Sampson about the story of the dinosaurs from their origin to their sudden demise. We'll also discuss how further knowledge about the dinosaurs gives us a better view of the entire natural world.

Guest: Scott D. Sampson, Ph.D. (dinosaur paleontologist; evolutionary biologist; Research Curator at the Utah Museum of Natural History; Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics at the University of Utah; author of Dinosaur Odyssey: Fossil Threads in the Web of Life)
