Engelmann, George F.

George Engelmann, a coauthor of Roadside Geology of Nebraska, has spent more than five decades seeking vertebrate fossils in the field and examining the rocks in which they are found, especially in the Rocky Mountains and on the Colorado Plateau, particularly around Dinosaur National Monument, where he added important fossils to the record of vertebrate evolution in the Triassic and Jurassic. He strives to pass along the information and excitement of geology and paleontology to students and others and is Emeritus Professor of Geology at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).
