Some of the most beautiful and well-preserved  fossils of prehistoric birds in the world have been found in the Jehol shale formations of China. Many of these Mesozoic fossils have even preserved the details of the feathers of these early toothed birds. Tonight on Inquiry we speak with Dr.  LUIS M. CHIAPPE, adjunct professor at the University of Southern California and vice president for research and collections at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, where he directs the museums Dinosaur Institute. His new book, co-authored with Meng Qingin, is BIRDS OF STONE: CHINESE AVIAN FOSSILS FROM THE AGE OF DINOSAURS.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
