Lecture: What's with the Long-necks? Methodology and Mythology Regarding Sauropods

2 p.m., Friday, Nov. 2
Dr. Kent A. Stevens, a University of Oregon professor of computer science, has pioneered the application of computer graphics to modeling articulated dinosaur skeletons. Stevens will share his fascination with the four-legged, herbivorous sauropods, the biggest animals to ever live, and discuss how computers help resolve some questions regarding how sauropods lived and moved. Stevens and his collaborators are attempting to dispel some of the myths surrounding sauropods.
