2001 A. Watson Armour Symposium
(Posted for Chris Brochu)
The Field Museum is pleased to announce the 2001 A. Watson Armour Symposium:
The Paleobiology and Phylogenetics of Large Theropods.
The study of theropod dinosaurs has been reborn in the past two decades, thanks
to new analytical methods and spectacular new discoveries around the world.
But most attention has been directed towards the smaller forms and their
relationships to living theropods. Significant advances have also been made in
our understanding of the larger theropods - the tyrannosaurids, abelisaurids,
allosauroids, spinosauroids, and their relatives. An improved understanding of
such giants will clearly help us understand Theropoda as a whole, but they are
also interesting in their own right, raising questions not approachable with
This symposium brings together some of the top researchers on these important
animals. They will address issues ranging from life history and phylogeny to
function and comparative anatomy.
This one-day symposium will take place on Saturday, May 12, and will include
Registration for the symposium will be $15.00. A reception will be held at the
Field Museum afterwards. For more information, contact Chris Brochu at
