Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries: Prepare to take a journey of discovery into the exciting world of modern paleontology with Dr. Julia A. Clarke who will highlight new discoveries in this field and their implications. New imaging techniques are changing what parts of dinosaur biology we can study and the questions we ask about them. In her research at Berlin’s Museum für Naturkunde, Dr. Clarke spent her summers collaborating and working with their key animal sound archive and bird collections. In her talk, Dr. Clarke will focus on how we study sounds and colors in these magnificent reptiles.
