Description: Dinosaur Discoveries: Ancient Fossils, New Ideas, from the American Museum of Natural History, casts a vivid picture of what living, breathing dinosaurs were really like and shows how current thinking about dinosaur biology has changed over the past two decades using a combination of major fossil finds, captivating computer simulations and provocative models to create a detailed examination of recent scientific sleuthing about these fascinating animals. The exhibit showcases the array of investigative tools - from bioengineering computer software to CT scans - used by modern scientists to reinterpret many of the most persistent and puzzling mysteries of dinosaurs. The exhibit even explores the idea of how dinosaurs’ descendants may still be walking the earth today. The exhibit is organized by leaders in the field of paleontology: the American Museum of Natural History, New York (www.amnh.org), in collaboration with the California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco; The Field Museum, Chicago; the Houston Museum of Natural Science; and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh.
