Lyle Carbutt's, adjunct professor of earth science, topic, "Sauropods: The Behemoths of the Dinosaur World", is the first Adams State College Faculty Lecture for the spring semester. The lecture begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26, in Porter Hall (the science building) room 130.

Sauropods are one of the most recognizable dinosaurs. They have been a part of our modern culture since the early 20th century. Many people still see them the way scientists did over 100 years ago. The image of these behemoths has changed since then. Find out the fascinating discoveries scientists have made about these dinosaurs and how they lived in their environment.

All talks are free and the public is invited. Complimentary light refreshments will be offered. For further information on the series of lectures, contact Dr. Robert Astalos, associate professor of physics, at 719-587-7821, or rjastalos@adams.edu.
