Dinosaurs have intrigued scientists for hundreds of years. As we uncover more about them through fossil research, our planet’s history is becoming more and more apparent. So, what are the latest geological, paleontological, and biological discoveries that scientists are making? Matthew A. McLain, Ph.D., an accomplished vertebrate paleontologist, joins us to explain. 

Dr. Mclain is an expert on dinosaurs, pterosaurs, phytosaurs, and other ancient species. Currently, he serves as the Interim Dean of the School of Science, Associate Professor of Biology and Geology, and Department of Biological and Physical Sciences Chair at The Master’s University in Santa Clarita, CA. 

In this episode, we explore:

  • The difference between researching fossils in the field and a lab.
  • How vertebrate paleontology has evolved over time.
