Reisz Lab - Vertebrate Paleontology
Robert Reisz, Distinguished Professor of Paleontology at the University of Toronto Mississauga, is a leading authority on the evolution of ancient organisms that eventually gave rise to living mammals, reptiles, and birds. He has led and participated in expeditions globally, and has also explored many crucial events in evolution, including early stages of dinosaur evolution, and dinosaur embryology. He is currently developing a new interdisciplinary research centre at Jilin University in China. Professor Reisz’s discoveries have been widely featured in textbooks, scientific magazines, and have been popularized and disseminated to the lay public globally through numerous interviews on national and international media.
