Event Description:
The University of Arkansas Museum will host Dr. Celina Suarez’s talk “The Vertebrate Fossil Record of the Lower Cretaceous Strata of Arkansas: A Rapidly Evolving Picture” on January 16th at 7PM.

Associate Professor in the Department of Geosciences, Dr. Suarez was part of the research team which studied the first theropod dinosaur trackways found in Arkansas and published their findings in the journal PLOS ONE last year. The tracks were found in 2011 at a gypsum quarry in southwest Arkansas. It was determined the tracks belonged to the large carnivorous dinosaur Acrocanthosaurus. Plaster casts of the best-preserved tracks were made and later donated to the University of Arkansas Museum. Dr. Suarez will discuss the team’s findings, as well as some of her other recent work.

A sampling of the casts will be on display specially for the program. Those who attend will also get a chance to see other fossils from the Museum on display.

The event will be held in the neighboring Arkansas Archeological Survey building at 2475 N Hatch Ave. Light refreshments will be served. This series is free and open to the public.
