Palaeo in the Pub: Dinosaurs with Wings

July 10 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Palaeo in the Pub is back again! Collaborating with STEM at the Tav we are bringing out the big guns… DINOSAURS!

Dinosaurs with wings: how birds survived a global catastrophe

Reptiles have survived and thrived for over 300 million years, and are today the most successful group of land vertebrates. Professor Mike Lee will discuss one of the key events in their evolution: how certain dinosaurs took to the air to become birds, thus escaping a global catastrophe that killed all the other dinosaurs.
 
Mike Lee is a professor at Flinders University and senior research scientist at the SA Museum, and a former Fulbright Fellow. He is a world expert in reptile evolution and biodiversity science, and has coauthored around 200 research papers, including 16 ground-breaking works in Nature and Science.
 
As a STEM at the Tav event there will be the usual free food dispersed around the crowd, and some merch raffled off from various clubs involved with supporting these events. Get amongst it and spend some time with your fellow Flinders students, academics, techies, Paleo-nerds and pub enthusiasts! 
 
Cheers to these guys for helping make this happen!
