UFOP Online Meetings

October 14: Rodolfo Coria

A quest for Early Cretaceous dinosaurs in Patagonia — Opening a long closed window

The UFOP Online Meetings talks return in October with Argentine paleontologist Rodolfo Aníbal Coria. He is probably best known for co-describing and naming the dinosaur giants Argentinosaurus and Giganotosaurus. Respectively, those South American dinosaurs may be the largest sauropod and theropod dinosaurs to live on the planet. He is a member of the Argentine Paleontological Association, Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, Paleontological Society and The Explorers Club. He is currently Associated Professor and Director of the Paleontology School at the Universidad Nacional de Rio Negro, and former President of the Argentine Paleontological Association.

October 14, 7:00 PM Mountain Daylight Time.
