Please join us for Dinosaur Hall Tour with paleontologist Danny Barta on Saturday, December 2 at 1 PM at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). Come and learn about the evolution of dinosaurs, and the hypotheses concerning their end and their evolution into the birds around us today from AMNH paleontologist and Richard Gilder Graduate Student, Danny Barta. Discover and see the differences between the two major groups of dinosaurs: ornithischians and saurischians and listen to Barta describe his own research on dinosaur reproduction, growth and development. We will also check out the AMNH's impressive Titanosaur, a 120 ft long dinosaur from Argentina.

Danny Barta is a Ph.D. candidate in comparative biology at the Richard Gilder Graduate School of the American Museum of Natural History. He grew up in Helena, Montana, and holds a masters degree in earth sciences from Montana State University. Broadly, he is interested in vertebrate reproduction, growth, and development. His doctoral research focuses on the post-hatching growth and development of basal theropod and ornithischian dinosaurs. The exceptional collections available at the American Museum of Natural History provide important insight into dinosaur growth rates and anatomical changes during development. He also has conducted fieldwork in the western United States, China, and Mongolia.
