Dr. James O. Farlow


Dr. James O. Farlow;

Dr. Farlow, Professor of Geology at Indiana University - Purdue University, Fort Wayne, is a native Hoosier and grew up in several small towns in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. He has been hooked on dinosaurs since the moment he was first exposed to them; watching the dinosaur sequence from Fantasia on The Mickey Mouse Club TV show, at the very impressionable age of six.

Dr. Farlow majored in zoology at Indiana University, where he did undergraduate research on the ecology and behavior of salamanders. After graduating from I.U., Dr. Farlow had trouble deciding on whether he wanted to be an ecologist or a paleontologist, so he went to Yale University for his graduate studies and tried to do both; studying paleontology while also doing research on the feeding habits of deep-sea fishes and crabs. After getting his PhD, Dr. Farlow took a job in the geology department as a paleontologist, solving his career dilemmas once and for all.

Dr. Farlow has done research in paleobiology; working to determine the function of Stegosaurus plates and the shape and function of theropod teeth, and has done research on the paleoecology of dinosaur communities. His current research is in ichnology (the study of fossil tracks, trails, and footprints) and how best to identify the makers of dinosaur footprints.

Dr. Farlow has written about dinosaurs in numerous scientific articles as well as in books aimed at children and young adults and is the co-editor of The Complete Dinosaur. He has appeared on popular television programs about dinosaurs, often as an expert on dinosaur tracks.

Dr. Farlow currently lives in northern Indiana with his wife, two daughters, and (in his own words) the world's laziest dog.
