The University of Iowa Museum of Natural History will continue its Explorers Seminar Series on Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. with “In and Out of Africa—the Horned Giants That Ate Our Ancestors,” a lecture by Chris Brochu, UI associate professor of geoscience. The free public lecture will be held in the Museum’s Biosphere Discovery Hub. Refreshments will be available.
The Department of Geoscience is a unit of the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Brochu specializes in vertebrate paleontology and phylogenetics, which are evolutionary relationships between organisms. His research combines the study of modern animals and the fossil record to demonstrate how evolutionary relationships can be determined through time. He is an expert in crocodiles and travels the world to research specimens in museum collections.
