Jon TennantMonday’s Ask a Geologist: 3pm – 4pm – dinosaurs, evolution and extinction

Kicking things off for us today, palaeontologist Jon Tennant (@protohedgehog) will be taking questions on dinosaurs, evolution and the history of life on Earth. Jon is also a science communicator and has a strong interest in open access publishing, so if you have questions on either of those topics, he’d be happy to answer them.
