John R. Horner
- John R. Horner
- Paleontologist; Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies
Jack Horner discovered that dinosaurs cared for their young, and some were social animals nesting in colonies.
A paleontologist, he specializes in researching dinosaur behavior and growth; he has accumulated evidence that many named species of dinosaur are actually immature versions of other dinosaur species: he believes up to a third of named dinosaur species could ‘disappear’ when the area is fully researched.
His research is now focused on reactivating dormant dinosaur DNA in birds to hatch modern-day dinosaurs. Horner’s face is familiar to millions from his appearances in many television documentaries about dinosaurs.
