Seats are already being snapped up for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ (RCVS) 2011 Share Jones Lecture, entitled: “Who says you can’t be big and nimble? The fragility of giant land animals.”
This year’s lecture will given by John Hutchinson, professor of evolutionary biomechanics at the Royal Veterinary College. Tickets are free. Space, however, is limited, so those wishing to come are advised to book early.
Prof Hutchinson was proposed for the 2011 lectureship by the former RVC principal and RCVS council member Quintin McKellar, and has been widely published on subjects ranging from the anatomy and locomotion of dinosaurs and crocodiles, to elephants and broiler chickens.
Prof Hutchinson is also the associate editor of the Journal of Theoretical Biology and holds a PhD awarded by Berkeley in the “Evolution of hindlimb anatomy and function in theropod dinosaurs.”
The lecture will be held at 6pm on November 23 in the Great Hall of the RVC’s Camden campus, with refreshments offered afterwards.
Tickets will shortly be issued to those who have already booked, and will continue to be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, or to book, contact Fiona Harcourt on 020 7202 0773 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
