Chickensaurus is Coming?

by OregonFossilGuy on Nov 19, 2009

A delightful, plain-English scientific discussion about new technology that may bring us closer to understanding dinosaurs. Horner walks us through a complex discussion about DNA, bio-ethics and evolution with a peak into the science of today that could bring a 'dinosaur' into the lab. The book is so well-done that even CBS' "60 Minutes" featured it on a recent broadcast regarding the concepts of bio-technology. In addition to the science discussed, the book (and broadcast) take us to the field and shows changes in paleo work as a result of these new theories about tissue recovery from mineral-hardened fossil bone. Horner notes that DNA fiction produced the "Jurassic Park" books and movies, but is quick to add the new bio-science may get us closer to an evolutionay breakthrough which could show a great deal about dinosaur development (and extinction) while helping medical science. This is a great read for any one who collects fossils, studies evolution and/or wonders out-loud about science on the cutting edge.
