Even with over one hundred years of intense scientific study, paleontologists are still making discoveries about Tyrannosaurus rex. Most of what we know about T. rex growth and behavior comes from studying the shape of its bones, but a completely different kind of growth record is preserved inside them. Paleohistologist and MSU alumna Dr. Holly Woodward explains how the stories told by microscopic features within the bones of the Tyrant King teach us even more about the world’s most iconic dinosaur.

Discoveries made by paleontologists continue to shed new light on the deep past of the planet and the creatures that arose here. This speaker series explores recent findings and current hypotheses as conveyed by scientists who are actively exploring how life on Earth has changed through time and what the fossils of extinct organisms can teach us about the world today. Refreshments are provided post-lecture during speaker meet and greet. Registration is strongly encouraged. Wearing a face mask is required in the lecture hall.
