Dinosaurs have been a source of fascination ever since their discovery in England early in the 19th century. Before their extinction, dinosaurs dominated Earth's terrestrial habitats for about 160 million years, far longer than primates. Dinosaurs present the ultimate puzzle in forensic science, but we have learned a great deal about them in the last 50 years. This lecture series will explain the evolutionary and ecological relationships among dinosaurs, what it might have been like to be present in the Mesozoic Era, and the question of what ultimately brought about the total extinction of all dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous Period. Although extinct, dinosaurs have never been more a focus of science than they are today.More

Such a great series of lectures about dinosaurs. Very comprehensive. Gives a history of paleontology and goes into the evolution of dinosaurs throughout the Mesozoic era. Also discusses the role of dinosaurs in pop culture and details all the things they got wrong/got right in Jurassic Park (among others). Very entertaining lecturer. Recommended to anyone interested in dinosaurs.
