Science Inquiry: Dinosaurs on the Cutting-Edge: Understanding Extinct Animals thru Paleohistology

Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore innovative science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by an engaging question and answer session. 

How can the microscopic examination of fossilized specimens shed light on dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures?  Ellen-Thérèse Lamm, the Museum of the Rockies’ Histology Lab Manager, will describe the “cutting-edge” thin-sectioning and microscopy techniques she uses, and how the work of the lab allows researchers, students, and investigators from around the world to make important discoveries about ancient life.
