In what is certain to be an exciting lecture, PBMNH's Curator of Paleontology Robert DePalma will present some of the newest cutting-edge techniques used in paleo research today. Robert will discuss his application of these techniques in his study of the ultra-rare amber specimens previously discovered by him at one of his dino-aged Hell Creek sites. These are the very first amber-preserved insects, feathers, and other creatures ever discovered in the Hell Creek, and they can now be examined in ways not even dreamed of ten years ago. Most of them are also new species! This new technique allows us to view specimens that are the size of sesame-seeds in stunning, three dimensional images, and even to go inside them to examine their internal structures!This is a massive collaborative research project being lead by DePalma, and includes experts at the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center and the University of Kansas Biodiversity Institute. This effort is expected to result in multiple publications in the scientific journals over the next few years.
