Moriarty Science Seminar: Mystery of the Missing Diminutive Dinosaurs
October 26, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
R.W. Moriarty Science Seminar Presents: “Mystery of the Missing Diminutive Dinosaurs”
Speaker: Jack Horner
This talk revisits “the nesting behavior of dinosaurs” as published in a 1984 Scientific American article. From there I discuss the dinosaur nesting sites that have been found worldwide, and investigate the reasons why baby and small juvenile dinosaurs remains are so seldom found in these nesting areas. I will also discuss dinosaur cranial growth and tie the two concepts, growth and behavior, together in order to hypothesize evolutionary trends.
