The Natural Science Seminar Series involves informal, bi-weekly presentations that are open to everyone, and are sponsored by the CWU Department of Biological Sciences and the CWU College of the Sciences.  Please share with others who may be interested.

All seminars will be held in the Science Building, Room 147 from 4:00-5:00pm (unless otherwise noted).

Friday, October 13th

A Basal Deinonychosaur from James Ross Island, Antarctica & the Biostratigraphy of the Latest Cretaceous, Antarctic Dinosaurs

Presenter:

Dr. Judd Case, Department of Biology, Eastern Washington University

Deinonychosaurs are the closest dinosaur relatives to birds.  Come learn about them and Dr. Case's research in Antarctica!

Dr. Case received his Ph.D. in evolutionary biology from University of California, Riverside and his research has centered on vertebrate paleontology to answer questions in the areas of evolution, biogeography and recently on the effects of climate change on the past life in Antarctica.  At Eastern, he is a member of the Department of Biology, teaching vertebrate zoology, biogeography and hematology.  

Dr. Case has extensive Antarctic field experience having conducted nine field seasons in the Antarctic Peninsula, which has been funded by grants from the National Science Foundation. He was honored by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) as one of two professors worldwide to receive their prestigious Visiting Professor Award for 2016-17.  This past summer he took his visiting professorship at the Museo de La Plata in Argentina, researching new Eocene marsupials from Antarctica as well as new end of the cretaceous dinosaurs from Antarctica.  He presented talks at the Universidad Nacional La Plata and at the Instituto Antartico Argentino in Buenos Aires.
