恐龙半年内登陆 (早报星期天, 4th December 2011)

恐龙半年内登陆 (早报星期天, 4th December 2011) Posted on 12 December 2011 by dbsnlls Click on image to download pdf. 恐龙半年内登陆 李光前自然历史博物馆以800多万元购买三副恐龙化石的计划已经进入最后阶段。一旦与卖家完成法律程序,其中一大一小两副化石预计可在半年内抵新。博物馆初步计划先妥善藏化石,到2014年博物馆开幕时才一并展出。 本报记者日前受自然历史博物馆之邀,和博物馆筹款委员会主席陈伟兴教授一同到美国犹他州,视察三副梁龙科恐龙化石在当地实验室的情况。陈伟兴这次赴美主要是为了确认化石的状态。以及索取当地古生物学家对化石真实性的考证。 在获得犹他大学学者的认证后,陈伟兴指出,接下来要做的是尽早将化石运来新加坡。至于两副先来新的化石是否应该先展出, 博物馆暂妥取保留态度。陈伟兴说:"恐龙化石是博物馆的亮点展示,如果让它们提前曝光,会破坏惊喜感。我们还在探讨这个问题,也不排除若有适当场地,会先展示一副化石,但这些要一步一步来。" 陈伟兴有信心,化石即使"尘封"两年,日后仍然能吸引外国专家前来研究。这些化石或许也能吸引更多专家钻研东南亚其他生物,这也是李光前自然历史博物馆收藏和研究的主要领域。 他也解释,博物馆现在做最后的确认工作是合乎情理的安排,因为博物馆如果没有确定要买入化石,就无须浪费过多的资源处理这方面的事宜。最后的确认程序是进一步额外的保障。 博物馆展示”讲故事” 另一方面,位于国大肯特岗校园的李光前自然历史博物馆虽然还未动土,恐龙展厅的设计已在如火如茶地进行。陈伟兴透露,博物馆有意通过恐龙化石叙述各种自然历史的故事。除此之外,恐龙为何灭绝和气候转变有关,可以引发人们思考地球现在面对的环境课题。为了加强展厅"讲故事"的效果,博物馆也可以增添其他恐龙化石。 陈伟兴说:"设计团队建议在展厅多放置一些小恐龙以丰富情景,我们还在考虑。但即使我们最终决定这么做,也只是购买恐龙化石复制品而已。" 博物馆今年年中突然宣布有意购买美国出土的三副恐龙化石,并...
