Paleontologist Lowell Dingus will stop by the Bruce Museum Thursday night to discuss the evolution and extinction of dinosaurs, explaining the major extinction hypothesizes including meteor impact, volcanism and mammals eating their eggs. But he'll also pose the question as to whether or not dinosaurs are really extinct. This is the first lecture in a series of three by leading paleontologists who will talk about the evolution of dinosaurs and the connections they seem to have with birds (hint, hint).
