Ecolunch presents Eric Gorscak presenting “Cretaceous Paleobiologeography, Morphological Clocks, and Model-Based Approaches: Case Study Utilizing Titanosaurian Dinosaurs with Evidence of a Centralized Role for Continental Africa” on Wednesday, Oct. 22, at 11:50 a.m. in Irvine 159.

“Titanosaurians were a successful group of Cretaceous dinosaurs but with an obscure evolutionary history. Using recent model-based approaches and fossil discoveries from Africa, this history is elucidated with evidence for a more centralized role of Cretaceous Africa despite its deficient fossil record,” says Gorscak, a doctoral student in Biological Sciences.

A Forum article, “Grad Student Discovers New Species of Titanosaurian Dinosaur,” talks about his research.
