1st June 2009 – Dinosaur Locomotion

Dinosaur Locomotion and Primate Evolutionary Divergence

Dr Bill Sellers of Manchester University will introduce us to his research on dinosaurs and how they moved.

Could a T-Rex catch a triceratops that was running to escape?  Could it catch a man who was trying not to be eaten (if we’d been around)? How did primate locomotion evolve and what influence did it have on evolution?

We will also discuss the research that tells us these things and the level of credibility we can put on research results about things that were happening millions of years ago.
