Science at FMNH : Ep. 39 - Digital Planet: Antarctica Showcase

This summer, youth who participated in the Digital Planet: Antarctica program planned, filmed, and edited short videos on Dr. Peter Makovicky's 2010 paleontological expedition. These videos highlight the research, science and logistics necessary to excavate fossils in this harsh environment.

This principle could be one explanation of why Dr. Makovicky and Dr. Smith are finding many Jurassic vertebrate fossils in Antarctica that are larger than their close relatives else where in the world.
