Unearthing Africa's Crocs, Dinosaurs & Ancient Civilizations
with Dr. Paul Sereno
Friday, March 7, 7 pm
Kane Hall 130, UW Campus

Sail-backed meat-eaters, toothy fern-mowers, digging raptors, super-sized crocs, soaring pterosaurs, and pre-Egyptian humans are featured in this journey back in time with National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence and University of Chicago professor, Paul Sereno. Join us as Sereno paints a vivid picture of how a lifetime of discoveries and field research carried him to remote corners of the Sahara to discover dozens of new species. Explore the transformations the land, people, and animals have gone through over millions of years under some of the most brutal conditions on Earth.
