The UH Manoa Distinguished Lecture Series welcomes renowned paleontologist John "Jack" Horner to the campus for a public lecture presentation and two on-campus seminars.

Horner is Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana and Montana State University Regents‘ Professor of Paleontology. He is credited with the first discovery of dinosaur eggs in the Western Hemisphere, the first evidence of dinosaur colonial nesting, the first evidence of parental care among dinosaurs, and the first dinosaur embryos.

His appearances and seminar presentations here are sponsored by the UH Manoa Department of Zoology and the Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics and Planetology. The primary public lecture — "Cool New Stuff about Old Dinosaurs" — will be on Tuesday, January 25, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the UH Manoa Campus Center Ballroom.

This month‘s guest lecturer has named a number of new dinosaurs, and in addition has two dinosaurs named after himself. His research covers a wide range of topics about the pre-historic animals, including their behavior, physiology, ecology and evolution.

His work has been featured in numerous magazines, as well as the movie Jurassic Park and its sequels, The Lost World and Jurassic Park III.
