Dino Hunt Canada Series Premiere January 30 at 9 e/p
From coast to coast Canada’s top palaeontologists dig into Canada’s prehistoric past to unearth the story of how dinosaurs lived – and died.
For more information we talked to Dr. David Evans: Temerty Chair and Curator of Vertebrate Palaeontology, Royal Ontario Museum and Associate Professor, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Toronto.
Evans’ research focuses on the evolution, biogeography, and diversity of dinosaurs, and their relationship to environmental changes leading up to the end Cretaceous extinction event. Because new fossil discoveries are key to understanding the history of life, Evans is active in the field searching for and collecting vertebrate fossils. He has conducted fieldwork all over the globe, including the Africa, Mongolia, and Canada, and has helped discover seven new dinosaur species in the last five years.
