Renowned paleontologist Dr. John R. “Jack” Horner and his teams discovered the first evidence of parental care in dinosaurs, extensive nesting grounds, evidence of dinosaur herds, and the world’s first dinosaur embryos. Jack has named several new species of dinosaurs including Maiasaura, the “good mother reptile”, and two dinosaur species have been named after him. He has published numerous papers, popular books and articles. His book Digging Dinosaurs was described by New Scientist Magazine as one of the 200 most important science books of the 20th Century. Jack was the technical advisor for Steven Spielberg on all of the Jurassic Park movies, and on the FOX television show Terra Nova. He has been featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes, National Geographic, and The Discovery Channel. Jack is the Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies, and Regent’s Professor of Paleontology at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. He is also a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Paleobiology at the Smithsonian Institution, an Honorary Research Fellow with the Natural History Museum in London and directs the largest dinosaur field research program in the world.
A book signing will follow the lecture. Copies of Jack's book, How to Build a Dinosaur, The New Science of Reverse Evolution will be available for purchase at the event.
