Only about half of the dinosaurs have lived on Earth more than 60 million years ago have been named. So, it’s big news when a new species is discovered or named.

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology professor of Environmental Science and Sustainability Steven Jasinski, PhD. has named or helped name seven different dinosaur species, including two in the last year.

Jasinski joins us on Friday’s Smart Talk to discuss paleoantology and discovering and naming dinosaurs.
