Around 30-40 new species of dinosaurs are being discovered each year, bringing the total number of known species to more than 750.
Research at the Museum encompasses all major dinosaur groups, with special emphasis on ornithischians and sauropodomorphs.
Find out about our research investigating dinosaur biology, which aims to define the limits of dinosaur feeding and locomotory behaviours.
We are aiming to document the interactions between dinosaurs and their environments, allowing investigation of some major evolutionary and ecological processes over extended timescales unavailable to modern biologists.
Learn about work being carried out by Museum palaeontologists to revise dinosaur classifications. This will enable more accurate insights into their evolutionary palaeobiology.
