Dinosaurs & Disasters

Dinosaurs & Disasters

Prefix: 
EES
Course Number: 
130

More than 65 million years ago, dinosaurs and their kin dominated the earth and relegated our mammalian ancestors to positions of unimportance for nearly 155 million years. This course traces the history of dinosaurs from early vertebrate ancestors to their final extinction and surveys the evolutionary, paleogeographic, environmental, and possible extraterrestrial causes for the rise to dominance and sudden fall. Along the way and afterwards, dinosaur interactions with other organisms and the environment, as well as their indirect influence on mammals, particularly on the much later evolution of humankind, will be examined.
